These cute little coasters are a great way to use up all those extra bits of yarn and make a beautiful gift!
- oddments of yarn, about 30g each, in colours of your choice (we used cotton, 4 ply and DK in blues and creams)
- 4.5mm knitting needles
- sewing needle
- Use the band on your yarn as a guide to create 10cm x 10cm tension squares – they’re the perfect size for coasters.
- Knit your squares in a variety of stitches – it’s a great way to experiment and extend your skills. We used garter, stocking stitch, and bamboo stitch. (Bamboo stitch: Row 1: RS * yo, k2, pass 1st stitch over, k2; rep from * to end. Row 2: Purl all sts.)
