I would like to introduce to you: the Ombre coasters! The coasters are simple and quick to make. With 15 minutes you can have your first one ready (Early christmas gifts, anyone?). The pattern features dropped stitches. They add a bit of texture, but aren’t too raised above the coaster itself. Which is nice, because otherwise your drink would topple over! The pattern is written in US and NL terms, and has an accompanying crochet diagram.
You can find the free crochet pattern for the coaster here. If you’re looking for the dutch (NL) pattern, you can find it here!
And now, the giveaway! For these coasters I used Scheepjes Catona in 4 colours, a 100% mercerized cotton yarn. Because it’s cotton, you can use the coasters for both hot and cold bevarages and wash them easily. Catona is available in a myriad of colours, and I really had a hard time narrowing it down to only 4 colours for the coasters, ha!
Scheepjes has kindly provided the Catona that you need to make a set of these coasters. Aren’t they great!? In order to play along, you have to do 3 things:
- Hop on over to the Scheepjes facebook page and like their page.
- Hop on over to my own facebook page and give it a good ol’ like too!
- Leave a comment on this blogpost, telling me you for who you’re going to make these coasters (remember, excellent christmas gifts!). Please make sure to enter your e-mail address, so I can contact you after the giveaway! It’s only visible to me, not to anybody else.
The giveaway is open until the 10th of September, 12 AM (GMT+1.00). After that I will draw and e-mail the winner. Good luck!
