"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

This placement is so simple and should knit up quickly. The attached pocket is what sold it for me. The placement is just different and I like it.

Great idea. I like the pocket on the tablemat. This will surely be a conversation starter at the next Thanksgiving holiday dinner. If I begin now, maybe I will have enough for the 10 piece setting I will be needing.

Very, very cute pattern! I love the way you use the leaf to tuck your silverware in, because who hasn't been at a big Thanksgiving dinner where the silverware doesn't get lost between courses? You could also change the colorways around so you're using the ombre or variegated yarn for the place mats and the solid color for the leaves. So cute!

This is a really great pattern, you can use the two together or separately. I made the placemats, but I also used the great leaf pattern for other things for the fall and thanksgiving displays!
