CREATING THE MAT/PLAYBOOK:

Border – Optional if doing the play-mat

Around each square you can do a single crochet round – working 2 SC into each ‘corner’.

Then  single crocheted them to together – 3 squares for each ‘row’ – I did this with the Bible Stories!

OR you can Mattress Stitch the squares together like I did.

This is the border that was used for the Bible Stories Mat:

The Border: – Note I did not do a border for this mat 🙂
RND 1: 1 DC into each SC all around – working 2 DC into each ‘join’ and [2 DC; 2 CH; 2 DC] into each corner.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

“Crochet is an art and crocheters it’s artists. Each crafted item is unique and own to its crafter”
