Hurdle Stitch Coasters

 

Perfect project for a lazy weekend, these pretty coasters knit up in no time, and what’s more, you can make two sets of six, in just one ball of Vardhman Bling. A great project for beginners, though experienced knitters find it equally refreshing! Steam blocking the finished coasters gives them the perfect finish.

Make these as quick gifts for friends and family, and don’t forget to share pictures of your coasters with us. Tag us to your facebook/Instagram post as @vardhmanknitworld or use the hashtag #vardhmanknittingyarn
