Coaster Pattern Search

I like to drink tea, but I fear water rings on my tables! I thought it would be fun to whip up some fun coasters to use up my remnant yarn, so I have consolidated my pattern search here. I am hoping to find patterns that are not just squares, that have a little pizazz to them.

See the ** at the beginning for the ones that impressed me the most.

Other fun coaster inspired projects:
  • This isn't knit, but the braided mug rug is darling!
  • Planter covers - cover a square box with a bunch of swatches (or coasters, really) so spice up your potters.
  • Woven Zakka Napkins - These are too cute to not include. You will need some kind of little loom, though.

I've realized that these searches often inspire me to design something of my own that is different than what I have been able to find. Maybe a fun K1b coaster... who knows!
