Felted Poker Coasters
It’s time to go “all in” and knit up a set of felted coasters.
These playing-card-themed coasters knit up so fast that they would make a great hostess gift, and if you start now you can have a set ready in time for the next big game.
This pattern would work well for beginners to knitting in intarsia, as the felting would hide any uneven tension changes for those unfamiliar to color work. One ball of the Cloud (white) and two balls each of the Red and Coal (black) are enough yarn to make a full set of 12 coasters.
Note: this is an updated version of my Felted Poker Card Coasters pattern that was published in the 2008 Stitch ‘n Bitch Page-a-Day calendar. Since the calendar is no longer available for purchase, and one of the colors used in the original pattern has since been discontinued, I have updated the pattern and made it available to you through Knit Picks’ Independant Designers Program.
-UPDATE- this pattern is now available to purchase 2 ways: through the Knit Picks site, or right here as a Ravelry download!
