The school year is winding down to a close and I just realized that I needed to get/ make something for my son’s pre-k teachers. When I was at World Market yesterday, I found some really cute coffee cups and it got me thinking. I found this free pattern on Ravelry yesterday courtesy of Louise Howe for an apple coaster/ mug rug and thought I’d give it a try.
Please note- the pattern is written in U.K. terms. I had to write it down in U.S. terms to keep myself from using the wrong stitches (again). I used a Susan Bates I9/ 5.50 mm. hook and some random leftover cotton kitchen yarn that I had in my stash. I followed the pattern up to the point that it said repeat on the 4th row and stopped. I wasn’t too sure about what happened after that point in the pattern, but I thought the size was perfect, so I didn’t worry about adding any more.The leaves worked up really quickly too (I may need to keep them in mind for something else). I added a chain-stitch stem to top it off.
