These coasters are a quick and easy way to use up worsted weight leftovers.

They’re also a great project to learn stranded knitting. Almost any inconsistency in the beginner’s tension will literally come out in the wash when the coaster is felted.

Before felting: 6.5inx6.5in (16.5cmx16.5cm)
After felting: 3.5inx3.5in (9cmx9cm)

YARN (per coaster)
30yds/22.9m main color (the background)
20yds/18.3m contrasting color (the border and the snowflake)

Any worsted weight, 100% wool, non-superwash yarn will work. White yarns frequently do not felt well. Use a natural or cream color instead. I’ve had success felting Lion Brand Fishermen’s wool in the natural color and Brown Sheep Nature Spun in the aran color.
