January Monthly Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop
Welcome to the first 2018 monthly Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! So this month, I chose to make Valentine’s Heart Coasters from Doni at Whiskers and Wool. So happy to be participating in the January Monthly Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop!
These Valentine’s coasters are really easy to make. It took me less than an hour to make each one. The pattern by Doni is written really well and is easy to follow. Since they are crocheted in the round my only suggestion is to make sure you mark your beginning stitch. The first one I made came out a little wonky because I got off on my stitch count! You definitely want to use cotton yarn as it absorbs the condensation from your cup better. I used Lily Sugar and Cream.
These would make great teacher or co-worker gifts!

These are so cute. I don’t think I could use them for cups because I would be worried I would ruin them- they are to pretty.
I’m amazed that you were able to crochet so well. It’s a skill I don’t have. They turned out beautifully.
These are so pretty. I wish I could crochet.
How pretty! I’ve never learned to crochet, but I see so many lovely items that I wish I had taken the time to learn. Pinning.
Thanks Beverly! And there’s a youtube video to learn just about anything these days!

Thank you Lynda!
Your coasters are so cute. They will look wonderful for Valentine’s Day.
Your coasters came out great and look exactly like the original pin. Great tip on using cotton yarn too.
These turned out beautifully. I love it when actually manage to make something I’ve pinned, it’s very satisfying isn’t it?
What a great idea the Monthly Pinterest Challenge is, Roseann! Your coasters look beautiful and they really would make a lovely, thoughtful Valentine’s Day Gift. Thank you so much for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
