The coasters, I mentioned, in the last post(Meshy Scarf) are ready to be shared, along with a brief tutorial.
To make coasters, pick your yarns and appropriate hook. First make a mesh.
DC in the 5th chain(counting as first DC and a chain).
Skip one chain and DC in next, Ch1. Repeat till the end.
Ch4 and turn.
DC in the first DC, Ch1. Repeat till you have eight rows.
So, now we have eight rows and eight columns.
Without cutting the yarn, ch1 and 2 SC in the same corner space.
Now make 2 SC in each space, till you reach the corner. For corners, make( 2SC, Ch1, 2SC).
Continue till you reach the point where you began. Make 2 SC, Ch1, and join with slip stitch to the first SC.
You are done with the mesh.
Now, with the contrasting color, make a chain of around 150. Keep the chains a little tighter than usual. Without cutting the yarn, start weaving through the mesh(refer the pictures below).
When you are done with the weaving cut the yarn and fasten off, leaving a little tail. Weave the yarn in the chains. I weave it through the ribs of chain.
And when you reach mesh, take your needle into the mesh. I think this will help in keeping the mesh and the chain intact.
This is the back side.
And this is the front.
I hope you liked the coasters and the tutorial. If you make something out of this pattern then do not forget to share.
