Fair Isle Coaster Pattern

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 

-sisscors 

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.

New Dishcloths!!

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.

Fair Isle

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.
