I take my yarn with me pretty much wherever I go. Even if I don’t have a specific design in mind at the moment, I like having it nearby to try out ideas that pop into my head. One day, we were planning on going to a show. On the way out, I grabbed a small skein of yarn and hook—just in case. Sitting in the theater, waiting for the show to begin, these coasters were born.
I have made two samples of these coasters: a light blue one in cotton yarn, and a brown one in wool yarn. I’ve found that the wool one holds it shape a lot better than the cotton one, which tends to curl. They work up really quick, so feel free to experiment with different yarns! They would probably work fine in a sport weight acrylic yarn too.
