RE: wanted octagon placemat pattern

Octogon is a basic layout. If you want it less holey, start with a chain 3, rather than chain 6

Ch 3; slip stitch for form circle; ch 3; 2 dc into center; chai 3; 3 dc into center; repeat for 18 dc; 6 ch 2 spaces; join to top of beg. ch 3.

Slip stitch to first ch 2 sp; ch 5; dc in same space; one dc in each dc to next ch 3 space; dc, ch 2, dc in next ch 2 space. Continue aroun doing 1 dc in each dc and one dc chain 2 one dc in each space. Join to 3rd chain on beginning chain 5.

Continue in this manner until desired size is reached.
