Suddenly it feels like summer, as though spring got bored of being springy and jumped straight into humid heat. I really don’t want to complain (yet) because I did moan and groan about how cold it was this winter but, it’s hot out there! It’s so hot that as soon as I add ice to a drink the condensation immediately dribbles down the glass and pools at the bottom. My immediate thought: make more coasters!
100% cotton yarn, worsted weight like Handicrafter cotton in colour of choice
Size 4.50mm crochet hook
Pattern is worked in rounds, do not turn at end of round. Use stitch markers to keep track of beginning/end of round. Don’t feel you need to stick to the exact stitch combinations I’ve outlined in Round 4 – you can make your own variations and add a unique touch to your coasters!
