Fiesta entrelac coasters

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • picking up stitches on the edge

Pattern Description:

I really am into coasters (see my other patterns). We have a group of knitters meeting every Monday at a local restaurant and I noticed that we are continually blotting up liquid from our beverages in order to keep our knitting projects dry, therefore the old saving that "necessity is the mother of invention" came into play.

Easy & quick projects with little expense are my favorites. Coasters can be done with 1 skein of yarn, makes anywhere from 6 to 8 --- or more. Varigated or self stripping yarn shows well in this pattern. Contact me at "tperry@west-tenn.com" for further information.
