Today I will be sharing with you my star-like flowery coasters. My husband gave me money on our 4th wedding anniversary to buy yarn and do something for myself. So, I went to the shop and bought some mercerized cotton yarn in rainbow colours as it is kind of expensive to buy here. That was last October for your information :)
My plan was to do a bag for myself but that did not work out because it is a fine thread. So, I thought of doing a blouse only to find out it won't be that light to wear. I kept trying and trying, and ripping and frogging that I ended up with all those small balls of yarn :D
And I just didn't like anything I crocheted. Especially that I wanted to come up with my own design for whatever I do with this yarn. I ended up bagging the whole lot away out of frustration, telling myself to just let's forget about it for now and take it out later.
Which is exactly what I did last month. I got my bag, took the yarn out, and just started crocheting those star-like flowery things :)
I did a few and then thought of crocheting them together to make a table runner and that was the outcome.
I have been trying to round it off or even square it up but again I didn't like my attempts. Seems like I am going to be one of those designers, so picky. Again I put it away, but I am planning to have a go at it next week and hopefully have it done with.
Let me know if you would like to have a written pattern and perhaps I would be courageous enough to put up a tutorial for the coasters.
Happy hooking everyone,
