I wanted to make some red things for my online shop at madeit.com to make it look more festive. I had some of this thick cotton blend in red left, but only enough to make a pair of large coasters.
a pair of red doily coasters
Because this 60% cotton 40% acrylic blend is so thick, I used a 4mm hook. I followed my four round doily pattern which then made these generously sized. This time, the last round has scallops of 7 dc instead of 8 dc, and the start has a loop of 4 ch.
