November 20th 2017 Swatch - Thanksgiving Round Coaster

Knitted Round Coaster

I found this while looking for something else but decided this would look cute in Orange representing a pumpkin pie.  I have posted the site in case you want to visit.


I knitted mine in orange as in Pumpkin Pie but you can use any color you like for your coaster.

Materials: Left over worsted weight cotton yarn
Size 6 (US) Knitting needles.
Coaster size is about 5 inches in diameter.

Directions:
Cast on 8 stitches.
Row 1: (wrong side) Knit
Row 2: K2, yo, K2, turn (4 unworked stitches on left needle)
Row 3: K5
Row 4: K2, yo, K5, turn (2 unworked stitches)
Row 5: K8
Row 6: Bind off 2 stitches, K7 (all stitches worked)

Repeat rows 1-6 (16) times, for a total of 17 wedges. Do not bind off.
Cut yarn, leaving a 10-12" tail for sewing. Sew the "live" stitches on the knitting needle to the cast-on stitches of the first row. Using yarn needle, draw a running thread through the stitches of the inside circle to tighten up the center circle
Enjoy!!!!
hugs...love... & blessings
