In an effort to be a bit 'greener' with my crafting (and save money!), I've been trying to use up all my leftover scraps of yarn. So I made some coasters!





They're just 3 rounds of dc made with aran-weight wool - ridiculously simple but I love them! I'll be giving them to my dad for his birthday later in the month and they'll match the hat I made him for Christmas using the same wool. Nothing like a good bit of accessorizing...! Smiley

Like I said, these are really simple to make but if anyone is new to crochet and wants to make them but isn't sure how, there are some directions on my blog here

Thanks for looking.

Super cute.  I always end up with weird small bits of yarn.

Very cute.  I try to make scrap afghans with my leftover bits but I end up supplementing with more yarn from the store and then I have more bits leftover...  its an evil circle.   Smiley

These are really cute!  I might try out your tutorial - I just started crocheting, so we'll see if I can figure it out!

Those are adorable, and such a great way to make use of left over yarn you can't bear to throw away.
Great job!

Great! I love these! Very simple idea, and they look fantastic! In fact, I'm going over to my remnants box right now to make them!! I think they make very cute, easy and great looking gifts!
