Attractive mats for a variety of uses in the home are made by crocheting designs around ivory rings, and joining the motifs in different ways. They are popularly used for hot dish mats and are also favored for table scarf ends, luncheon sets or decorative doilies. Choose a thread that is best for the use for which the mat is intended. Clark's O.N.T. or J. & P. Coats Mercerized Crochet in sizes 5, 10 and 20 are very practical, and equally attractive mats are made of J. & P. Coats Knit-Cro-Sheen, or Crochet Cord, Clark's O.N.T. Cronita or Knitting and Crochet Cotton, and Pearl Cotton, size 5.
The most popular size of ivory ring is ⅞ inch or 1 inch in diameter. If rings are not available, wrap the thread around the thumb about 14 times, slip off and use as a ring.
