Springtime Coasters

Originally uploaded by aliciamalia.

My boyfriend and I drove to Santa Barbara two weekends ago for an outrigger race. I brought along an assortment of worsted weight yarns and Doni Speigle's Springtime Coasters pattern (a free download on ravelry).

It's a very quick pattern. Blocking is necessary to get a nice, flat result, but I like the curled edges that wrap up around the edge of your glass. They're also very thick (and thus good coasters).

I'm working on a new pattern for a matching storage case for the coaster set.
