This is fantastic!
Here is a Lime coaster.
Even though they are far from precise, I really love the segments here. They are made using the ‘surface slip stitch’ technique, which I didn’t know how to do until yesterday, but it’s a very cute and useful piece of crochet, and it can give simple, but amazing details.
I want to make lemon and grapefruit coasters as well, but for that I will need the yarn that the amazing @cluelessaboutcrochet is kindly providing me, because she’s my crochet twin!
I really shouldn’t since I made it, but I can’t get over how cute it looks!
Yesterday I bought some cotton yarns to try and make those lovely fruit coasters you see around. They are so pretty and so easy to make, there are quite a few free patterns for them too, but since I like a challenge, however small, I made my own.
It is made of two parts sewed together in the hope of giving it a sturdier feel, and because it hides all the colour changes, and bits of loose threads.
This is the kiwi coaster, hopefully by tonight there will be photos of the one I’m currently working on: an apple one.
