Tribal Stripe Coasters (Free Knitting Pattern!)

{Originally published September 2012 on Prairiesque}

I published this free pattern long ago on my old blog, and thought it was time to post again…this is a simple yet fabulous stitch pattern, (if I do say so!)   Like zipper pouches and coffee mugs, you just can’t have too many coasters.  Make these in some bright colors for a fresh & breezy feel, or maybe try them in a lovely subdued wool for something a little more hygge…

I have also begun re-formatting my older knitting patterns and am slowly getting them listed both in the etsy shop and on my ravelry page.  They are linked in a new section of the website called Sew, Knit, Create, as well.  These patterns are available for purchase, but I hope to also soon fill the section with free patterns, tutorials, and ideas.  As always, the site is a work in progress!  But I am excited for the plans I have…

If I get the time, I hope to throw together a little local shopping guide before the weekend.  If you plan on shopping this weekend, I hope you’ll participate in Small Business Saturday and remember to buy local!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
