Ombre Coasters

I needed a quick fix to complete my crafty weekend that didn’t quite happen but kinda did.  LOLOL!   But before I get to the project, I have to tell on myself cause the pattern is one that came from a new crochet block book I bought last month.   Yeah … I’m not doing so good with not purchasing books.  Kinda but not kinda.  I’ve not bought any magazines or random books … just instruction books … but I digress.

But back to the project — Ombre Coasters; I like to call the pattern, “Spring In Brooklyn

Details:

  • Pattern: In Bloom (from book 500 crochet blocks)
  • Yarn: KP Dishie in Pomegranate, Fiesta Red, Lionbrand Cotton in Grape, KP Dishie in Flamingo and Lionbrand Cotton in Vanilla
  • Difficulty Rating: Beginner
  • Modifications: None.  But when I do them again, I’ll use the seamless join instead of the slip-stitch join the pattern calls for.  That join is typically untidy looking to me and with cotton being so thick, the join is even more untidy to me.

These are such a happy, cheerful addition to my kitchen.  I’m using them already!  😀

Hope you each had a wonderful weekend.

      Thank you so much Andi. 😀 This is actually my favourite WP theme; I was just cheating on it with the one I had before! 😳 😛

      And thanks so much for the coaster love! I enjoy using them as much as I enjoyed making them. 😀
