I have used just standard household cotton string, which you can buy in any DIY shops, medium weight which is around aran weight (around 500 meters), a 5mm (US H/8) crochet hook and fabric dye if you want to change colour.
Ch - chain
Ch-sp - chain space
Dc (US sc) - double crochet (US single crochet)
Tr (US dc) - treble (US double crochet)
Ss - slip stitch
Foundation ring: with 5mm (US H/8) crochet hook make 8ch and join with ss to form a ring.
Round 1: 3ch ( counts as first tr), 1tr in ring, (7ch, ss in top of last tr, 5tr in ring) 3 times, 7ch, ss in top of last tr, 3tr in ring, ss in 3rd of first 3ch.
Round 2: Ss into first 7-ch space, 4 ch, 2tr into 7-ch space (3ch, 3tr) 3 times into same 7-ch space, * miss next 2 tr, ss into next tr, miss next 2 tr, [(3tr, 3ch) 3 times, 3tr] all in next 7-ch space; rep from * until all 7-ch sp have been worked, miss next 2 tr, ss into next tr, miss next 2 tr, ss in 4th of first 4ch.

I've attached a lining, scrap of linen fabric I had lying around, no particular reason i just wanted slightly lighter colour showing through the spaces. This is optional, but if you would like to add lining as well, measures a piece of fabric to fit the mat exactly allowing 1cm seam allowance.
