It’s time to go “all in” and knit up a set of felted coasters.
These playing-card-themed coasters knit up so fast that they would make a great hostess gift, and if you start now you can have a set ready in time for the next big game.
This pattern would work well for beginners to knitting in intarsia, as the felting would hide any uneven tension changes for those unfamiliar to color work. One ball of the Cloud (white) and two balls each of the Red and Coal (black) are enough yarn to make a full set of 12 coasters.
You can purchase the pattern for $1.99 US through Knit Picks’ website here. At Knit Picks you can also purchase the required yarn for the pattern, as well as browse and support other IDP designers.
You can also find the pattern on Ravelry here, or go directly to the purchase page by clicking the ‘buy now’ button:
(Note- you do not need to be a Ravelry member to purchase the pattern through them).
Note: this is an updated version of my Felted Poker Card Coasters pattern that was published in the 2008 Stitch ‘n Bitch Page-a-Day calendar. Since the calendar is no longer available for purchase, and one of the colors used in the original pattern has since been discontinued, I have updated the pattern and made it available to you through Knit Picks’ Independant Designers Program.
