I was looking on Pinterest and found a great coaster pattern. The pattern is from 1893 so the yarn would be perfect with it. The pattern can be found here.
The yarn colors I used are as follows:
2nd Time Cotton
Araucania Pomaire Solid
Crochet Hook Size F (3.75mm). The pattern calls for a G (4.25mm) hook but I liked the results that an F (3.75mm) hook produced.
The pattern was easy to understand and is great for beginners.
Each coaster measures 5 inches (12.5mm)
Here is the finished product:
I decided to give these as a christmas gift to the ladies who work in the office.This is a gift I feel good about giving, not only are they handmade but they were made with recycled yarn!
Here are a few color combinations I put together for gifts.
I think I will try to make something I have never made before SOCKS!
