What Stitches Should You Know?
The garter stitch is the basic knitting stitch, and you will find some knitted placemat patterns here that use just that one simple stitch. However, from a person new to knitting to an advanced knitter, it is important to have the knowledge of basic knitting stitches.
Once you have mastered these stitches, you will be able to explore many knitting patterns, and this will give you the chance to add lovely and unique texture to your creations.
Go ahead and practice by making small swatches of each stitch until you have a good understanding of it.
We have great tutorials on the basic knitting stitches that you will need.
A Sneak Peek at the Free Knitted Placemat Patterns!
I would recommend the Summer Placemats link for beginners. They are the perfect first knitted placemat project!
There is not much pattern reading, and your gauge hardly matters. It’s done in the garter stitch, which is the most basic knitting stitch of all.
The Colorful Placemat in Ridged Eyelet Borders below is a good second project if you’re just learning. I would try the placemat pattern mentioned above first, but this is also considered a beginners project. A 14-ounce ball is enough to make eight placemats!!
This knitted placemat pattern is done with the stockinette stitch with vertical garter stitch borders.
The Basket and Placemat Set pattern uses the simple garter stitch, but it is a bit more complicated with the matching nine inch basket. But oh so cute!
This knitted placemat pattern calls for T-shirt yarn, which is great to work with. We show you how to make T-shirt yarn on our site.
Just sew cute leather handles to the basket to finish it off. Take a look below!
A more complicated free knitted placemat pattern is the Peachy-Keen Placemat. If you take a look at it, you will see a beautiful lacy pattern made in a sequence of alternating stockinette, twist stitch, and yarnover rows.
The seed stitch is used to form borders. You can’t help but fall in love with this one!
For those of you seasoned knitters, you can knit up some tea-themed table accessories. The free knitted placemat pattern includes instructions for making matching coasters.
