I am not a orange or yellow person but these are very pretty. This is an easy project that one can take every where where as a sweater or shawl is to large for me to carry around. I have made a total of 74..I have taken out some of the very first ones as I got this pattern from a beading magazine. When you crochet the beads on the outside, it turned them into a circle, the very last photos, you can see this. They are also 5 inches large, to large for me. So I have almost redone the whole design myself so they can lay flat and the coaster is smaller.
I just loved knitting these the colors were so subdue and these are their way to my mother in law and hope she likes them.
These are some of my mixed coasters, larger ones and my smaller ones. I gave most of these away already. I will make another purple for me. My youngest son wanted the red and my oldest one wanted the black. My youngest son wanted another set of black so just did them yesterday too.
