I use the double crochet stitch rarely and had to re-read the directions to accomplish the stitch.
Now, after I make 5 more I will have a set to enter in the fair. (The pictures above are before it is blocked)
Amy is ready to try and wants to go buy some crochet string and a small hook at Walmart later.
Sets of these coasters would make a wonderful addition to the girls hopechests!
(I was inspired to learn to crochet with string after seeing Kathleen's creations over at
Miss Abigail's Hope Chest .
She has done some beautiful kitchen towels with crocheted edges to use as wedding gifts. I commented on her blog and requested she publish a set of instructions for "dummies" that even I could follow...she did that today. Thanks Kathleen!)
