Simple Seed Stitch Border Coaster Pattern

So I was working on a sampler of coasters to decide what would work best in my house. When making coasters, I started making up some things up instead of just following other patterns. This coaster is very simple to knit, and I figured that I might as well share the pattern with y'all.

  • Size 6 knitting needles
  • gauge: 6 sts/inch, 15 rows/2 inches over stockinette
  • yarn needle to weave in loose ends
  • worsted weight wool (1 50 g ball can make multiple coasters)
  • Finished Size: 3.75 stitches Square
The Pattern
  • Cast on 23 sts
  • Work 4 rows in seed stitch: K1, *P1, K1* repeat from * across
  • RS Row: K1, P1, K1, P1, K15, P1, K1, P1, K1
  • WS Row: K1, P1, K1, P17, K1, P1, K1
  • Repeat the RS and WS rows until you have completed a total of 26 rows completed
  • Work 3 rows in seed stitch: K1, *P1, K1* repeat from * across
  • Bind off, keeping with seed stitch pattern (K1, *P1, K1* repeat from * across)
  • Weave in loose ends
  • Block if the coaster is curling.

The coaster may curl up, but it was able to lay flat without blocking. Blocking eliminated the curling completely.
