Need a last minute handknit gift? This is a quick and easy knit, taking less than an hour per coaster. It's a great way to use up any leftover worsted yarn you have in your stash, requiring only 30 yds of the background color and 20 yds of the foreground color per coaster.
It's also a great project to learn Fairisle style stranded knitting. Any inconsistencies in your tension will literally come out in the wash when you felt the coaster.
