With spring here, it’s time for some brighter, lighter projects. These playful coasters are so sweet with a dragonfly in the center. I made them in all different colors for fun but they would look great all in one color too. And, because each one only requires approximately 12 yards for the body and about 7 yards for the border, they are great stash-busters too!
I designed these in #4 cotton worsted yarn, such as Lily Sugar n Cream, Red Heart Creme de la Creme or Premier Home Cotton. They are super quick to make and look great stacked on a table, ready for easy access to protect your surfaces.
I’m planning another pattern that works in conjunction with these coaters too, so check back often!
