Issue 20’s free kit in Mollie Makes was the crochet coaster kit. I decided to test out my crochet skills and see how I went.
As you can see, the first one I made was significantly larger than the second, as my tension was not as tight. I found this created a more wave like texture or bubbles as the tension was random throughout. In the second coaster, it worked much better and I am proud of the result!
The pattern provided was very well set out and there was even a beginner cheat sheet provided for those who did not know how to do the types of chains. There was also a lot of wool provided which was great – especially as the first one was so much bigger! It was tricky though getting used to the thin wool rather than the knitting wool I usually use.
Overall I think this is a great project and I can’t wait to make some more!
