I want to make some placemats, and this is the only free pattern I've found that I like. However, it says to use sport weight yarn. It doesn't say to make it in cotton, but I assume a placemat should be knit in cotton like other kitchen things. And I don't even think cotton comes in a sport weight...at least basic cotton brands like Lily Sugar n Cream.
Any thoughts or opinions? If I can't decide what to do about this pattern and the whole cotton thing, I think I might just try and change around a dishcloth pattern to make it into a placemat.
