CLASSIC COASTERS TO CROCHET--- Review by Lorna HalnanThe instructions are very easy to follow. With the clear and
colorful pictures, though, experienced crocheters could almost make
them without the instructions!
Leisure Arts Leaflet #2611
I recommend this set for beginners who are ready to try crocheting
with thread. In particular, coasters #1, 3 and 4 are perfect for
It also gives you a selection of different brands of thread that
can be used with good results.
If you're an experienced crocheter and like to see results
quickly, you could whip up a couple (or more, if you're a fast
crocheter) in one evening. Make up a set of these coasters for a
quick birthday, house-warming or wedding gift!
These coasters could be made to match any decor: For a country
setting, they could be made in soft colors. For a very elegant
Victorian setting they could be made in classic white, ecru or taupe.
If done in bright primary colors they could be used as mini-doilies
in a child's room.
Most of the coasters in this pamphlet are round. However there are
patterns for a star-shaped, a pineapple-shaped, and a squarish one.
There are several picot-edged ones too.
I'm sure that most of us could also find a complimentary doily
pattern in our archives that would match many of the designs, i.e.,
pineapple, star, flower, picots, swirl, etc., and be able to have a
matching set. #### Reviewed by Lorna Halnan for Crochet Partners 3/96
