23 Modern FREE Crochet Placemat Patterns

Crochet placemats vary so much and can add a wonderful touch to your kitchen or dining room table. If you are looking for free crochet placemat patterns, you’re in the right place! I’ve compiled a list of designs in a variety of shapes and styles.

All About Crochet Placemats

Before you start crocheting placemats, there are some things you will want to keep in mind: things like style, yarn choice, and more.


If you’re wondering how to crochet a placemat, there are a variety of shapes and styles to choose from.

A crochet placemat can be as easy as making a simple rectangle out of single, double, or half double crochet.

You can also make round placemats, oval placemats, and more advanced rectangle placemats. You’ll see some of all of these types within this post!

Yarn Choice

One of the best yarns to use for crochet placemats is cotton. Cotton is durable, washable, and holds its shape very well. Here are some of my favorite cotton yarns that you can choose from.

Using Crochet Placemats

  • Everyday Table Use: simple placemats are great for everyday use at the kitchen table! You can use them to protect the table from spills. Just make sure to use easily washable yarn!
  • Perfect Christmas Gifts: another great way to use placemats is to give them away as gifts! They would work great as a Christmas gift for a family, or a set as a bridal shower gift.
  • Special Occasions: you can also make crochet placemats specific to special occasions or holidays! For example, Christmas placemats, Thanksgiving/Fall placemats, or summery placemats.
