I kept the pattern pulled up on the Macbook but didn't have to look at it much once I got going.
I didn't have the proper size hook, which was G, so I used an H hook, and yarn from my stash.
I was happy how it turned out.
They are not very big and I did this red one in about 15 minutes.
I decided to try in in a finer yarn with a smaller hook, this time an F.
I like this project very much, and want to try it using wool yarn. These would make delightful hostess gifts, or birthday, or Christmas. Very sweet and useful.
Here is the link to the directions to this project - 1893 Circle Motif coaster.
If you give it a try will you let me know how it turns out? We could share photos of our finished products. That would be fun!
