As I mentioned the other day, my lovely Mother-in-Law has requested some new coasters to replace ones I made for her a while ago that have become a little tatty.
The thing about coasters, in my opinion, is that they do need to be a little robust ~ capable of coping with an icy beer can, or absorbing a scattered biscuit crumb or two.
The size also has to be just right, I think. Too small and a wine glass could topple drunkenly over the edge. Too large, and they start to look more like a small place-mat.
After a number failed attempts, I do think we have success.
These are all made using Rowan Cotton Glace yarn and a 3mm hook.
In other news, I’ve just purchased some crochet pattern-making software from StitchWorksSoftware. If anybody is interested, I could try writing up the pattern. xxx
