Ready for an easy knitted coaster pattern that will only take thirty minutes or so to whip up?
Coffee or Tea, a perfect coaster is always in need to decorate and protect your workspace. But what if that coaster could help clean up the accidental spill at the same time? Easily knit up these adorable coasters and give as a gift set, or use at home for yourself.
KNITTED COASTER PATTERN
This pattern is ideal for you if your a beginner knitter with limited skills looking for a quick project. I started creating these coasters while on a camping trip sitting around the fire. I needed something different other than the regular dishcloths I usually choose to make!
Knitting dish clothes is an easy and practical beginner project but you can only knit so many.
That’s why I love this pattern, it’s a great way to knit up something different using my cotton yarn stash.
If you can only knit and cast on and off then I suggest trying this pattern instead.
If you can knit, purl and cast on and off then try this pattern too!
What you need to Knit A Coaster
I recommend using bamboo needles for beginners as they hold onto the yarn much nicer with less worry about slipping and losing stitches- any beginners nightmare!
