The Bottle Coaster Story

Almost finished completing this Bottle Coaster for the written crochet pattern. Sold in my Etsy Shop, https://www.etsy.com/shop/LeRaeCrochet

The Bottle Coaster is my first design. It all started in 2018, I had decided that instead of buying Christmas gifts for everyone, I would make them. We have quite the blended family. My husband and I both have stepparents, step-kids, step-everything! So it is pretty much double to triple as far as spending money.

I made dish clothes, coasters, and hats. When I was working on the coasters, suddenly a light bulb came on and I was crocheting a new design. It felt like what happens when you come out of writer’s block. When I saw what I was stitching wasn’t working, I’d pull it apart and start again. This went on for a few hours and I finally got the finish I wanted.

This design is called the Bottle Coaster for obvious reasons. It is small enough to fit a plastic or glass bottle. It is made of cotton for absorption. It’s small because bottle are typically a smaller diameter. I read somewhere that the best yarns to use for absorption are cotton and wool. So I will try this pattern out with wool soon. Currently, I am making a variety of colors with cotton. Check out my Etsy shop for the pattern or to see the product itself!

By the way, I received great reviews from the family about their gifts. It truly was a joy to watch them open their gifts and not see disappointment or gloom on their faces!
