This week, for some strange reason, I have been mainly crocheting coasters.
I needed something little to work on while waiting for new yarn to finish my bag project off (photos coming soon) so grabbed some of these threads at Hobbycraft.
It is a slightly textured mercerised cotton and I like the multi-coloured ones, although I have done a glittery red one too.
I found loads of free vintage patterns HERE, I had to browse through loads as nothing was quite rocking my boat. However, after a while of reading I kinda knew what I needed to do and with a little adaptation I wrote a new pattern, using bits of others and putting them all together.
I will share it soon :)
They are just so colourful, and the best bit is you can give them a wash if they get a bit grubby.
They are the prefect size for a mug and gives a layer of protection between your hot cup and your table :)
I just think they are so pretty, but I can't decide what colour to make for myself!
However, I have made a pair in shades of purples, pinks and blues for the Birthday Blog Box.
Check back for the pattern coming soon.....
