American Star Coaster


This American Star Coaster is made using the entrelac method of knitting. No worries if you have not made entrelac before, though! The pattern is written and also includes a video of the full pattern. These neat little stars can also be used to make bunting, or even as appliques. They'll look great out at your 4th of July barbecue, or as some home decor during the Olympic games while your whole family watches in anticipation. Pair this with the matching Patriotic Placemat for even more U.S.A. pride.

My first thought when I saw this pattern (besides "how cute!") was that the star could be used like an applique on home decor, like a pillow, or even on clothing. Besides solid colors, it might look great in self patterning yarn, especially red, white and blue. I have this in a cotton yarn so I think that would be perfect!

I enjoy the challenge of knitting different shapes using straight needles - something that seems almost impossible until you are a couple of rows into the pattern. The instructions for this pattern seem easy to follow but I am sure the first coaster will be the hardest to knit, as there are several steps to shaping the five points on the cute star coaster!
