I needed something fun to hold my drinks on my desk – something prettier than the paper towel that I’ve been using – so I whipped up these fun crochet coasters last week. They are quick and easy to make, just a solid granny square, which I edged in a border of single crochet. You can find patterns for solid granny squares all over the internets … here’s one, here’s another, and one more. I picked some fun, springy colors for my coasters, and stitched them up while watching TV the other night. The yarn on these is 100% cotton, to absorb those cold drips running down the side of my glass on warm spring days. I love quickie projects like this – very simple and quick, but adds a bit of color and cheer to my desk.
Here they are in action:
