Simple Knitted Coasters

2015-07-14 20.05.32Here is a quick and easy way to use up some scrap yarn to make something you might ACTUALLY use.  (Because let’s face it, most other ideas for scrap yarn are pretty sad…)

Start off with some worsted weight (4) yarn.  I used Caron Simply Soft in Pagoda and Sunshine.

Next, pick up a pair of size 5 needles, or something close, honestly it doesn’t matter too much.

1. Cast on 25 stitches.

2. Knit the first 3 rows.

4. Purl a row and knit a row  (making sure to knit the first and last 3 sts) until you have a square (about 28 rows with my needle size).

4. Knit the last 3 rows.

5. Bind off and sew in.

BOOOOOOOOOM! That is it. Dead serious. Dead simple. Now go make a cup on tea and put your creation to work! Cheerio!

always, ashley
