Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 15 sc and 16 rows (4 inch) to crochet this project (the mat will measure approximately 17 inch x 60 inch when unfolded). Remember to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere. Notes: The mat is meant to roll inside the bag. This yarn is designed to create stripes as you crochet. There are sections of Contrast colors each approx 14 yard long.
