A friend asked if I could knit him a set of coasters. Of course! Above are the prototypes, four different designs, four different yarns. He chose the blue design, in the blue yarn. Now they’re finished:
My personal favorite is the round white one, but I don’t have a reason to use coasters. They were fun to design and knit – once I got past the fiddly circular start at the center! Juggling five needles, with only eight stitches, meant dropping a needle more than once. Oh, well. They really were a quick knit in spite of that.
