Jewel

Jewel

I originally designed this motif because I was a little tired of finding glasses near our water station and the boys not knowing which glass was theirs.

Insert colour-coordinated coasters.

I added the loop on the last round for easy storing and drying BUT as I was weaving in the ends of the first one, I thought…DECORATION!

They would also make incredible Christmas Tree decorations – super easy to hang and coordinate in your own theme and they work up real quick too. I call that WINNING.

So here is the pattern for you. UK terms to follow after US terms.
