These knitted Seashell Coasters are the perfect addition to your home. Every time you set your drink down on one of these coasters, you will be transported to a sunny, warm locale. Check out this free knitting pattern and prepare to be impressed - these coasters can also double as pot holders. If you're interested in practicing short rows and intarsia, this pattern can't be beat. You can also bust your stash and work up a handful of these knit coasters with any type of yarn you have on hand. Give this pattern a try today and soon you'll be making an adorable coaster shaped like a seashell for everyone you know.

From the blogger: "Do you feel in the mood for a small project with a beachy summery flair to put you in the holiday feeling? Then these small coasters shaped like sea shells are perfect for you. They are useful to put under a cool drink in summer. They can also double as potholders. Furthermore, as a very small piece they are great to practice new knitting techniques - in this case short rows and intarsia. Plus they are great to use leftover yarn."

Well, time to pull up my big girl pants and take a chance on making this. It's too cute to pass by. And what have I got to lose? If it doesn't work, I just unravel it and make something else. These would look so cute at my sisters summer place at the lake!

This is a good way to learn short rows. It will work up quickly as well. I think these will make cute washcloths as well. Seashell patterns are always popular so they will make good gifts as well. Thank you.

I am always interested to see and learn new knitting stitches, so this pattern caught my eye right away. I have worked with short rows before but this pattern uses a different technique. I like working with cotton yarn, which this pattern uses, so I think I'll have to try making these.
