Plans for making circular mats - and making new ones

Here are two downloadable files with many plans for the mats shown below and some so-far untied. They are divided into two groups - those using a Celtic loop pattern (Astrom)and all others (Rossing). There is an explanatory READ_ME file in each of the zipped folders. Do try them for yourselves.

If you like the mats, you may be interested in the books by Alexander Astrom and Nils Rossing which are published by IGKT and available here.
