    Hi Ranganayaki..
    This one is for advanced people. Since you know crochet, you can do this.

    Here is an interesting and very distinct pattern for a place mat.

    The model was made of Lily Antique Bedspread Cotton and a number 8 steel crochet hook.

    Measures about 12 x 18 inches. One mat takes about 350 yards of thread.

    Abbreviations:

    Ch (chain);

    sts (stitches);

    sk (skip);

    bl (block);

    sp (space);

    tr (treble)-thread over twice, work off 2 lps at a time.

    Note: All bls are made of 5 tr. Ch 3 for large sp. Ch 1 for half sp.

    To begin, make a ch approximately 15 inches long.

    Row 1: Tr in 5th st from hook, tr in each of next 4 sts of foundation ch, * ch 3, sk 3 sts, tr in each of next 5 sts, repeat from * across 17 times making large sps, ch 8, turn.

    Row 2: Tr in 4th tr below (ch 3, tr in next tr, ch 3, sk 2 tr, tr in next tr) twice, * 3 tr over ch below, tr in tr- 1 bl made, ch 3, sk 2 tr, tr in tr, 3 tr over ch, tr in tr-bl made, make 9 sps, repeat from * once, make 1 bl, 1 sp, 1 bl, end with 5 sps, ch 4, turn.

    Row 3: Make (1 bl, 3 sps) twice, 1 bl, 7 sps, 1 bl, 3 sps, 1 bl, 7 sps, 1 bl, (3 sps, 1 bl) twice, ch 8, turn.

    Row 4: Tr in last tr of group for a sp, 2 more sps, (bl, 5 sps) 5 times, 1 bl, end with 3 sps, ch 4, turn.

    Row 5:1 bl, 1 sp, 1 bl, 3 sps, ch 1, tr over sp, ch 1-(these are called half sps), * 3 sps, 1 bl, 3 sps, 1 bl, 3 sps, ch 1, tr over sp, ch 1, repeat from * once, 3 sps, 1 bl, 1 sp, 1 bl, ch 8, turn.

    Row 6:1 sp, 1 bl, * 2 sps, 10 half sps, 2 sps, 1 bl, 1 sp, 1 bl, repeat from once, * 2 sps, 10 half sps, 2 sps, 1 bl, 1sp, ch 4, turn.

    Row 7:1 bl, 3 sps, * 10 half sps, 3 sps, 1 bl, 3 sps, repeat from * once, 10 half sps, 3 sps, 1 bl, ch 8, turn.

    Row 8: l sp,* 1 bl, 2sps, 10 half sps, 2 sps, l bl, lsp, repeat from * 3 times, ch 4, turn.

    Row 9: BL, sp, bl, * 3 sps, 2 half sps, 3 sps, 1 bl, 3 sps, 1 bl, repeat from * once, 3 sps, 2 half sps, 3 sps, 1 bl, 1 sp, 1 bl, ch 8, turn.

    Repeat the last six rows eight times forming five complete patterns on outside of piece. This takes you through row 57.

    Work the last four rows the same at first four, repeating rows 4, 3, 2, and 1.

    There are 61 rows in all. The photograph shows the first 25 rows.

    Dampen and stretch in true shape.

    Hi,
    As per the pattern you will have to make 145 chains...
    5 + 4 + 8 * 17 = 145

    Thanks
