July’s ePattern:

This month I thought it’d be fun to do a “warm weather” project that won’t roast you while you work on it.  Unlike when I made an afghan in Bristol, Rhode Island while celebrating July 4th a few summers ago…

Trying to come up with a good warm weather project has definitely stumped me, though.  So I’ve been mulling over these questions…

“What items could be useful this season?”

“What do I enjoy making in the summer?”

“What fibers are enjoyable to work with when it’s hot?”

And these led me to… coasters… hot mitts… washcloths, soap savers, headbands… seat cushions and pillow covers.

So which one would you choose?

This month I chose to release the pattern for my simple double crochet round coasters.  This was my second coaster pattern after first making them in single crochet.  Even though I loved the sturdiness of the single-crochet ones, I love the softer texture + look of this design.  Not to mention they whip up so much quicker!

They are easily customizable in cotton (my first choice), acrylic, or any fiber that will hold it’s shape.

This month you can get $2 off your purchase with coupon code: 1Pattern4Me

What do you enjoy crafting when it’s hot outside?  What pattern would you like to see next?  PS – Happy 4th of July!  Have a great weekend! 🙂
