MaryAnn's Nap Mat

An easy Nap mat for the Head Start Kids using Rug yarn (70-yd. sk.) or bulky or 2 strands of worsted.

I or J hook

Ch about 36" long (not tight, more loose) having a multiple of 3+1 (about 121 ch, having 40 sc in pattern across)

Foundation Row: Sc in 2nd ch from hk*; ch2, skip 2 ch, sc in next ch ;* rep. across, end with sc in last ch, ch 1, turn. (Take out excess chains, if any.....)

Row 2: Sc in 1st sc;* ch 2, sc in next sc; * rep. across; ch 1, turn. Repeat Row 2 for pattern, striping as desired, leaving 4" ends for self-fringe or shorter ends to sew in later.

(Fringe gets "ratty" or falls off sooner or later from washing....)

Carry colors not in use up side edges to minimize "ends".

A nap mat aprox. 22"x 32" requires about 3 sk. of Main color (A), 2 sk. of off-white (B), and 1 sk. of a bright color (C)---6 total.

(I used a lot of leftovers for the stripes!)

The following stripe pattern makes best use of this yarn: 5 rows A (dk),* 2 rows B (off-white), 1 row C (bright), 1 Row B (or D--a scrap color), 1 row C, 2 rows B, 6 rows A. Repeat stripes (5 total) and end with 6 rows A (hopefully)!!

This is a great car project--mindless--or would make a nice afghan using worsted yarn and an H or I hook! Just ch a little wider than you want the finished afghan to be and go for it.....If the work feels "harsh", it needs a bigger hook size. Do not work this tightly---Relax!
