The American crochet game follows the trend of popularization of art with this material and begins to leave homes to be used even in the decoration of tables at events such as weddings and parties.
The placemat is a fundamental piece to bring refinement and delicacy to the decoration of a dinner table, especially on special occasions, when several preparations are needed to please and impress guests. And to make you enchanted, this post brings everything about the American crochet game.
The piece can be purchased in specialized stores and on the internet, but for those looking to learn and want to venture into the art of crochet, check out these tips:
1. Choose the pattern and format for your piece
Like other crochet pieces, the placemat can be worked with different types of stitches, threads, colors and patterns.
It is possible to make a piece with floral prints, spiral design, work with horizontal lines with different threads, mix two colors and even in the most fun and themed format such as fruits, with Christmas style and so on.
2. Choose the proper wire
Nowadays, the main crochet yarn brands offer modern and elegant variations of yarns beyond the natural, such as: multicolored, with shine, prism, tropical effect, among others.
Thus, it is possible to produce really differentiated pieces that can even be commercialized. Plan the shape and design of your garment, and choose the threads carefully.
3. What is the difference between a sousplat and an American game?
Both sousplat and placemat can ornament and decorate a dining table. The big difference between the two is related to the size of each piece.
The crochet sousplat is intended to serve as support and protection only for the plate. The placemat, however, makes life easier for any housewife, as its extension covers not only the plate but also the glasses and cutlery.
On more formal occasions, there are those who use the two pieces together. It is important to emphasize the importance of the size of the placemat, whether rectangular, oval or circular, to cover all these needs.
