Mom had been wanting some round yellow placemats for her kitchen, and she hadn't been able to find them in the stores. I made her one of the Flower Power placemats, but she said that she would prefer something a little "plainer." So, I used a picot CO (150 sts), and then I used the same basic "swirly" center pattern for the Flower Power placemats. The yellow yarn that I ordered was a little brighter than she had really wanted, but they will work! The photo is not very good because of the window in the background.
