I've never considered myself or my house to be coaster-worthy until this summer.
I started noticing sweaty little glasses of Pioneer Womans (WONDERFUL) iced coffee leaving little rings on my fake cherry coffee & end tables.
I got to work on some cute little coaster and now I can't stop.
I used Lily Sugar n' Cream Cotton and an F hook.
I used all the colors I had and even made a trivet by adding on a two rounds ( Round 5:1 dc in next 3 stitches, then 2 dc and repeat to end. Round 6: 1 dc in each of next 4 stitches, then 2 dc in next and repeat to end. Round 7: Work lacey edge as in original pattern ).
At first the coaster will seem a bit floppy, but the added white stitches on top stiffen it up perfectly. I loved being able to do stripes without having to change my yarn every other row!
More to come...I just bought some orange, lt. blue and fuschia!
