Calming Crochet Coasters

If you were to receive a gorgeous set of cotton yarn, what would you make? When we were initially thinking about what to make for December’s #12MonthsofDIY challenge (our last one!) with yarn we knew we wanted to work with cotton and the idea of crocheted loofah’s came to mind. But when Lion Brand Yarns sent us the beautiful skeins, in coastal-inspired colours we had picked, loofah just didn’t seem to cut it.

Instead, I got out my crochet hook and made a coaster pattern! OK, although crochet coasters don’t seem any more glamorous than a loofah, these crochet rounds are a fantastic starting point for all kinds of projects including throw pillows, afghans and more. Stay tuned and we’ll be sharing some of these ideas in the coming months.
