Clever Little Coasters

Bits of yarn that are just too pretty or precious to throw away, such as your leftover handspun make fabulous coasters. They not only serve the practical purpose of keeping your furniture ring-free, they allow you to scatter your most coveted yarns around the house for spots of color. It just makes me happy to see that fiber I had such a great time spinning, transformed into something useful and well, gorgeous!

I love how the Reversible Mug Mat by Annmarie Aquino makes a sophisticated linen look coaster.

Calla Coasters Knit and Crochet PatternsThe Calla Coasters by Purl Soho are both knit and crochet!  They’re actually a knit, crochet and quilting project all rolled into one. You can use up some fabric scraps on this pattern, by lining each coaster with small pieces of coordinating fabric.

This is the easiest quilting you’ll ever do, since you only really have to pay attention to the appearance of the stitches on the fabric side. They’re pretty well covered by the thickness of the yarn on the yarny side. Easy!

 Our impending move back to the U.S. in less than three months has me thinking scrapbusting projects as I clean up and organize my craft room and fill my gift box with some cute little hostess gift items. Do you ever have enough of that sort of thing?

    Hello, Always loved / linen stitch , I have knit it several times for table runners & Coasters. I can see her copyrighting the post, blog post & written: printed pattern & calling it their own . NO One should copy & Paste & call it their own. But as far as knitting a linen stitch in a square & holding that as copyrighted.. I’m pretty sure the law does not back that up. LOL I have knit it into squares & runners MANY times , owning it never even occurred to me !
