The Green Dragonfly

Crochet coasters

Well it’s been a bit quiet here at the green dragonfly because we have just been away camping for the week, I’m right in the midst of mountains of washing, and loads of unpacking. Ill be back with some holiday pics tomorrow, but in the meantime I wanted to share another part of the present I made for my Mum for her birthday last week… some crochet coasters and a cute bowl to hold them in:

I used a 3mm hook and 8ply cotton which made for a very firm fabric for the coasters.And, very importantly, colors Mum loves…

She liked them and I was pleased with how they turned out… This is a lovely easy gift to make and I can see Ill be making more of these in the future. You can find the free pattern for the coasters here (I just made the bowl up as I went). Talk again soon! Janettexx

 

Edited to add that I have posted a photo tutorial for these coasters here: https://thegreendragonfly.wordpress.com/2014/09/20/crochet-coasters-tutorial/
