I am pretty confident that Spring has sprung here in North West Indiana. I went outside on my day off a few weeks ago and it was like suddenly the world was in color!! What the actual heck...its like my world has been covered in snow for the past 3 months....oh, wait, it was.

Anyway, here is my little stash busting project created in an afternoon. These are super fast to work up and you can make quite a few for a gift or for every end table in your house!
Supplies : size I & size L crochet hooks, two colors of worsted weight yarn from your stash
work this pattern in the round (and it's the simplest thing you could ever do)
row 1 : With the two yarns held together, ch2, sc 8 times in the the second ch from the hook, join with slp st in the top of the first sc, ch 1.
row 2 : 2 sc in each sc around, join with slp st in the top of the first sc, ch 1.
row 3 : 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next sc, * 2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc*, repeat from * to * around, join with slip st in the first sc, ch 1.
row 4 : 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in the next 2 sc, *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in the next 2 sc*, repeat from * to * around. Once you reach the first sc, using the size I hook join round with slp st in top of first sc - be sure to only yo and draw through the color of yarn you plan to use for the outer border.
row 5 : Using the size I hook, 2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next sc, *2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc*, repeat from * to * around. Join with slp st in the top of the first sc. Trim and weave in ends.
Repeat for desired number of coasters.
I used a bright yellow and a natural beige color and I they remind me of warm, warm weather. Even though I'm not looking to add to my stash (yet!) I'm loving all the yarn options on Craftsy! I love trying new yarn textures...but I feel like I always buy one skein and then I don't know what to do with it....hence why my stash is super huge.
I am hoping to get cracking sometime this year on my crafty goals this year, too. Boy I'm slacking!
