Step 1: What You Need
What you need to make a coaster. 1. Any kind of yarn. 2. Some knitting needles (It doesn't really matter what size you use, but I use US8 5. 0mm ones.) . 3. Scissors. 4. Patience ( this takes about 2 hours to make )
Step 2: Casting On
Start by Casting on 20 stitches.
Step 3: Making a Knit Row
Ok, now that you have 20 stitches on your needle, you need to make a knit row.
Step 4: Making the Knit Rows
After you're done with your first knit row, you need to knit 34 more rows. Once your done you should have 35 knit rows.
Step 5: Binding Off
Now you need to bind off all your stiches, stop when 1 stitch remains.
Step 6: Finishing Binding Off
Slide the 2 loops off your needles. Put the loops through each other. Cut yarn from skein, leaving about a 4 1/2" end.
Step 7: Finishing the End
Pull end through the stiches, and make a knot. Make 2 more knots, so there will be 3 knots.
Step 8: Finishing the Tail
On the other side there is a tail. Knot the tail 3 times like the end.
Step 9: Cutting the Ends
Cut the tail and the end very close to the knot.
Step 10: Use and Enjoy!
Now you're done with the coaster and you can use and enjoy it!
