Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn (color: Hippi)
What was your inspiration?
As usual, I was looking for a way to use up some leftover yarn from another project. The colors of this variegated yarn reminded me of a seaside cottage.
What are you most proud of?
I just chose a block from one of my crochet books, and it turned into some nice-looking coasters with the addition of reverse-single-crochet (crab stitch) edging.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
You don't always have to have a pattern. Let the yarn speak for itself, and use your books and patterns for inspiration. Then make something of your own design!
