  1. Congratulations on your new sweet little babe!
    Nice job on this little project! I love crochet and have made lots of things over the years including a set of three bears for each of my four children Whew! I still crochet but spend a lot more of my time in my studio/laundry room making cards. Here's my blog -- come on by for a visit. I'm a friend of your Mom's and found your blog through her e-mail

  3. I just made these up tonight as a "Thank You" gift to a lady that gave me a whole bunch of crochet pattern books... I've never even met this lady, but I can't see how anyone would not like these! Thanks for the pattern!

  5. I really like the coasters. Can you help me? I don't know what to do with the ends of the Jute strands... Do you just cut them off?

    1. Use your crochet hook to weave in the ends (approx 2 to 3 inches) on the bottom (or inside, depending on the project). You don't want to cut it too short as it might come out and the coaster might become holey.

  6. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what you've got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

  9. I'm a very basic beginner. I love how you detailed your instructions for those of us who aren't very familiar with terms and stitches. I have been wanting to make some coasters like these and I believe I could actually make these! Thank you for considering the layman out there who would like to learn.

  13. Ok first, I love crocheting n have made many projects over the years. My 1st was a two piece bikini wheno I was a preteen. I crochet when possible. I have had a wild bug to use my yarn, on easy projects for gifts. This project is perfect.. lol lol.. I love quick very easy patterns. These coasters, and place mats in same material, would be great gifts anytime. Sorry, there I go rambling, Oh ok and 2nd, what is Jute? I haven't heard of Jute before. Is it a brand or what?
