4th of July Placemat

By:

This 4th of July Placemat is a must-have for your next celebration. Not only is this pattern incredibly simple to knit, but it's also extremely absorbent. Place this handy placemat underneath a chilled bowl of punch on a picnic table so you won't have to worry about the condensation ruining your table. The best news? This simple pattern is thick enough to also be used as a potholder.
