It’s not often that I simply stumble upon a new design. I usually have a plan of action and lots of ideas listed out….so when I’m ready to design something new, I simply pull an idea from that list. This cute little free pattern came about a bit differently though.
I was working up a new design the other day, and it suddenly struck me that the piece I had created looked exactly like a turtle’s shell! It was like someone had told me, “Don’t think of pink elephants.” Once I saw the turtle shell, there was simply no going back….this piece HAD to be a turtle! And what better way to celebrate the coming summer (I’ve got warm weather on the brain!), than to have one of these cute little coasters sitting underneath your ice cold drinks!? We’ve already put both my knit and my crochet versions to work over here….one for my husband and one for me!
