20 yds. of heavy cord or fine clothes line.

When completed, large mat measures 9 inches in diameter; medium mat 7½ inches in diameter; and small mat 6 inches in diameter.

Twist s c-cord into a circle and, picking up back loop of each st, make 2 s c in each st around.

Cut cord and fasten off securely.
