Coasters and Placemats ~ Crochet Pattern Round Up from Jessie At Home

I drink a lot of ice water in the summer, and my cup always ends up in a puddle of water. So to me, summer means coasters! If you’re going to make some coasters, then why not make some placemats as well? This is how my mind works. So in honor of my crazy train of thought, here is a round up of coaster and placemat crochet patterns. Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.

That’s right. Spring breakS. Pural. Last week the girls were on spring break, and the week before it was Doug. It’s such a bummer that they do not have the same spring break. But we make the most of it. Doug took 3 days during his spring break off of his second job (tutor for Huntington Learning Center) so he would have more time with the girls. They loved when he would pick them up from school and then be home the rest of the day.

While they were at school, he managed to clean Vada’s walls, caulk the trim, and base paint her room. She is going to have a fairy forest room. However, we do not have the time or finances to do that all right now, so it just got a good start. We had to replace the ceiling in the fall, so that was done already. Now the room is painted a light blue (walls and ceiling) and the trim around the windows and doors are a medium blue. This summer we will add some bookshelves that are tree~like (how that works is yet to be determined, though we have a few ideas), we will sponge paint a few clouds on the ceiling, paint the baseboards green, and paint a few trees on the walls, grass coming up from the baseboards, and flowers. Plus fairies. Lots of fairies. Oh, and lay down a new floor. We must be crazy.

Anyway…here is a cute snap of the girls reading together. If you want to see more adorableness as it happens, you should follow me on Instagram. I post yarnie stuff there, and I post some of our crazy life as it happens over there as well! (more…)

150418 Stitchopedia ~ Entrelac Star Coaster pattern with video by Jessie At Home

Star Coaster
Free Knit Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This star coaster is made using the entrelac method of knitting. No worries if you have not made entrelac before, though! The pattern is written and also includes a video of the full pattern. These neat little stars can also be used to make bunting, or even as appliques. Have fun with them!!

*Please note, it is easy to end up with a little hole in the center of your star. There is a tip in the video on how to avoid this, and a note in the pattern, but the video makes it much clearer. If you do end up with the little hole, just leave a really long tail when you finish your star, weave it down to the center and use it to close the hole.
