Coasters

Last night my husband used our ball of string to tie up our cardboard boxes for recycling. When he was done, he left it sitting near my knitting spot. As I was looking at it, it occurred to me that it might make interesting crocheted coasters. So, I gave it a try. This is what I came up with:



I used string from the hardware store and a size J crochet hook. It is just single crochet, and I did a 12 stitch by 12 row square. I like them!

They're awesome! If they're cotton, you might want to line the back with plastic or something, so they don't absorb the condensation and get wet and leave a mark on the table. What a great idea, though.

Knitters find things to knit with in the oddest places.
