I decided to attempt to make up a simple pattern for a flower shaped coaster to use some of the cotton worsted yarn I have in my yarn bin devoted to cotton worsted. Feel free to use this pattern to make these for yourself, family, or friends. Please do not sell the pattern. Do not sell products made from the pattern online. If you wish to share the pattern, please send the person to my blog to get it.
Please let me know if you try it out. Let me know if any of my instructions do not make sense, or might be worded more clearly.
