“This is a perfect quick project for using up your stash! These would be great to make as a gift or simply to use around the home.”
If you would like to add fringing to your coasters (just like the image at the top of this post) begin by cutting lengths of 8cm yarn.
Join 6 lengths of the yarn to make each tassel. Weave them into each st around your coaster, ensuring they have been trimmed to the same length once each st has been completed.
Your project is now complete.
