Pinwheel Felt Mat
The beautiful pinwheel pattern makes great use of variegated yarn. An easy to knit but effective design created by the simple use of short rows, and with thick felt to protect your surfaces these place mats and coasters are a decorative and useful addition to your table.
This mat is knitted first in pure wool and then felted in an ordinary washing machine. Don’t worry! My pattern includes detailed instructions for felting your project.
My clear and detailed 4 page pattern clearly introduces how to knit short rows and contains detailed instructions and photos to guide you step by step through, knitting, and felting your mat.
This design uses one ball of variegated yarn. For best results choose a yarn with a long colour repeat.
Alternative yarns- These yarns will produce different shaded patterns or stripes.
