Super Colourful Crochet Coasters

What on earth has happened to the summer weather?  Blankets, hot chocolate and a feel-good movie has been necessary after every dog walk – as we have returned home, on most days, pretty soaked.

With Brinks snuggled up next to me, I’ve been whiling away the late afternoons with some crochet cosiness.

I seem to have quite a few projects on the go at the moment, including an Autumnal hat and a ripply blanket, to name a few, but these little beauties have really been capturing my mood…

The inspiration for these came from this post on the Haak Maar Raak blog, which contains a really lovely pattern that you can follow. I needed to adapt it slightly as I wanted an edge of original colour around the outside, but that was an easy little fix.

Anyway, I think they are the FAB-BEST!

… and because I used cotton yarn, they are wonderful insulators and will protect the furniture from all of those hot cups of tea (and chocolate)!

What projects do you have on the go at the moment? Is there anything you turn to when the weather starts to look more gloomy?

Happy Wednesday!
