  3. which mat is it

  4. Yes they do look nice but I too would like to know what weight yarn to use.

    • Lisa Ogilvie says

      I used a worsted weight cotton, it holds its shape well and can be tossed in the washer as often as necessary.

  5. Looks really nice but what weight yarn do I have to use? Is it a cotton yarn or what?
