I recently designed this super easy coaster pattern! It’s great if you want to learn fair isle, or are just looking for something easy and simple to make.
Here’s the pattern…
-2 balls of different color worsted yarn (I used Lily’s Suagr ‘n Cream yarn in White and Knit Picks’s Dishie yarn in Flamingo.)
-size 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles
Cast on 26
Knit 3 rows
Row 1: Knit 3 *knit 3 with white, knit 1 with pink
Repeat from * until there are 3 stitches left, then knit those 3
Row 2: knit 3, purl across row until there are 3 stitches left, then knit those 3
Row 3: knit 3 * knit one with pink knit 3 with white
Repeat from * until there are 3 stitches left, then knit those 3.
Row 4: knit 3, purl across the row until there are 3 stitches left, then knit those 3.
Repeat rows 1-4 until coaster is 4 1/2 inches long, knit 3 rows and bind off & weave in ends.
Your coaster should be about 5 by 5 inches.
I hope you enjoyed the pattern! Thanks for reading.
I couldn’t help it any longer….I listed these new dishcloths in the shop yesterday!!! I love them so much. They’re made with 100% cotton yarn, so they’re great for scrubbung dishes, washing down countertops, and even gifts! I made a little color chart to go with them.

We just got back from an awesome road trip. I wanted to share some pictures with you!

Soooo……I learned how to fair isle! It’s actually much easier than I thought it would be. I had a bit of trouble with keeping my navy stitches tight, but I did it!
I reccomend watching Very Pink Knits’ How to Fair Isle video. It has several parts, but it’s very informative.
