Crochet: The Single Crochet Tangelo (mat)

 

 The Tangelo.

 

As you have probably guessed

by looking at some of my other crochet posts;

I love

Rico’s Creative Cotton

(Aran)

 

The colours in the stash

I bought the other year are so vibrant & fresh,

they practically leap up at you.

 

 

Which make Creative Cottons perfect

for table mats.

To make things interesting for myself,

 

I decided to try out the Intarsia Crochet tablemat

I have been drooling over/avoiding

for the past 12 months.

Side note: 

The pattern is from a lovely Japanese book called

Crochet with British Taste

ISBN: 978 4 579 11161 9

How easy is Intarsia Crochet?!

If you haven’t tried it  

it’s easy.

 

I have been kicking myself all week for taking so long

to get to this project.

Unlike Tapestry Crochet,

you don’t need to carry along spare colours  under

your yarn.

 

Drop & Move on.

 

No waste yarn, no fiddling about.

oh okay, there’s a little fiddling.

 

There has to be

to avoid 5 balls of yarn twisting together

when you turn your work.

 

It’s fun though!

I have to say I am pretty stoked with this effort.

The Tangelo colours along with the square blocks

makes for a lovely fresh modern look.

Perfect! on both sides.
