Spiral Coasters Preview

 Good morning lovely people! :)



Today I just want to show you a few pictures of the spiral coasters I've been making recently.


Again I've tried to use lots of different Catania colors, I just love the way they look all together, just like a colorful rainbow :) As you might notice, the coasters got little hangers - which is not necessary for the coasters to serve their purpose of course, but I think it's a nice extra, and - moreover - it makes the end of the spiral look less conspicuous. You might also notice that I've used surface stitches again (which I've done before in my Spring Mandala) - I'm quite addicted to those stitches right now, for they can create an interesting effect on any piece of crochet. I think you might see them more often in my projects now :)


Do you like my spiral coasters so far? They're very quick and easy to make, and I had so much fun taking the pictures and preparing them for posting. If you're interested in the pattern, please stop by again, I'm working on it!

Have a great week-end,

  18. Hello Barbara
    Its all about colour isn't it? I mean of course you have to have the know how to crochet but something simple like a coaster can turn into a work of art just by using the right colour and combination. I think you've found it here....lovely refreshing summery colours.
