Extreme Crochet Merino Barstool Pads

I have had the incredible joy collaboration with Sarah from Mama Knows Luxury. Read more about our collaboration here. As a result... I bring to you the Extreme Barstool Pattern and Kit. These are great because you can also use them as placemats to brighten up your summer tables.

These are so fun to work up. You can make a set in fun brights like I did or a set to match your decor. If you want to ditch the hook, like I did, and hand crochet, check the video and tutorial here. And you can shop and get the kit to make your own Mama Knows Luxury Extreme Crochet here.


Stitches Used / Abbreviations:
ch – chain
sc – single crochet



Start with a magic circle. Now, because of the bulk of the wool, you want to create a SMALL magic circle and have a VERY short tail.

Round 1:  ch 1 then 5 sc into your magic circle,  do not JOIN the round
Round 2:  2sc in each sc of round 1
Round 3:  2sc in first sc of round 2, *1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st* / Repeat * to * around until you have just about 4 inches of yarn left


Pull the end through by hand to secure.
Then hand weave the tail in.
Take your felting kit and hand felt the end to secure it.

And Voila! So fun and so quick and simple! Get the Kit to make your own here.

And a special shout out to my FAVORITE knitting spot, Zion Coffee House for allowing me to add pops of color and basically live there.
