I have tried... and tried... and tried... But I can't get this doggone hat pattern to work. So I've had to switch gears and settle for Plan B. I promise not to give up and to have a hat pattern for you as soon as possible.
I think these coasters would make an adorable hostess gift any time of year. I see them made in sets of four or six and tied with a pretty ribbon befitting the season or complementing the colors you choose. They're also a terrific way to use up some scrap or stash yarn. Each one requires so little yarn, in fact, that you could easily get a set of six out of one (2 oz.) ball of cotton yarn.
