The Wild Flowers Coaster is designed to fit over a wide mouth mason metal jar lid, which you can either buy new or—as I do—wash one well after you remove it from a jar of home canned goods and reuse it! I use wool for my coasters as it is a renewable resource and insulates well. I use up odds and ends of worsted weight wool from other projects. The wool I used in the coaster in these pattern photos is dyed with wildflowers and spices such as tansy, Queen Anne’s Lace, St. John’s Wort, cinnamon sticks, rooibos, etc. I only use food grade alum and cream of tartar as mordents, sometimes with vinegar, baking soda, or rusty bits of metal or nails in an afterbath to change the colour.

NOTE: Canadian/US terms used

Materials needed:

  • Wide mouth mason metal jar lid.

  • Worsted or aran #4 yarn: ---I measured only approximate yarn amounts and 25 yards should make one coaster. You can make it all one colour or change colours every row to use up smaller bits of yarn—4 yards is the most one round uses.

  • 5 mm hook (USH). You will also need a bodkin/yarn needle to weave in ends and, of course, scissors.
