Hello! Yes this is part one, as two of our Lovely Birthday Club Girls celebrated in July.
First up was Mardi. One of the things Mardi told us was that she loves Bright Colours particularly Red, Yellow and Green.
I hooked Mardi up this gorgeous set of coasters starting with her preferred colours and adding to the three with my own choices to get this lovely Retro-ish palette. I used Catania Cotton and a Clover Amour 3.25mm hook.
All boxed up, wrapped in a colourful tissue paper and ready to be sent on their way.
The pattern was from About.com and seems to have now vanished it was adapted by Sandi Marshall from an 1893 pattern and renamed 'reworked circle motif'. The original pattern was know as "Crocheted wheel for tidy" from a publication called 'the ladies Model FancyWork manual'. From memory I used a magic circle as a start point rather than the original Ch something ss. I'm sad to see this pattern no longer available, I did not realise it had gone, until I attempted to link it for this post. I may be able to rework it looking at my photos of what I made here, it is really such a sweet pattern and I had planned to use it again.
