Gift: Coasters


(Crochet)



I have been playing with crochet coasters these past weeks, because I wanted to give a set to a dear friend. 
He estado haciendo pruebas de portavasos en ganchillo, porque quería regalarle un set a una amiga. 




I tried different patterns…but at the end I came up with my own version. 
Probé varios patrones, pero al final salí con una versión propia. 




I am calling it: “Bloom coasters”.  It is formed by clusters that look like petals, blooming to form a round motif.  It is a little lacy, but not too much.
Le di el nombre de “Portavasos Florecientes” a este patrón, porque está formado de grupitos de puntos altos que se asemejan a pétalos florecientes, que forman una aplicación redonda.   Es un poco calado, pero no demasiado. 



I made the whole set with cotton (DK weight) in natural color, and the border in fine cotton thread (#10), in earth tones: burnt orange, brown, beige, mustard, olive green. 
Utilicé un algodón natural delgado, y el borde lo hice de hilo fino (#10), en colores tierra: naranja oscuro, café, beige, mostaza, verde oliva. 




I am planning on making more of these…for gifts…and for my home (I want some too!).
Estoy planeando hacer más de estos…para regalos…y para mi casa (¡yo también quiero unos!). 




Next time I will be sharing here the pattern, in case any of you want to give them a try…
En la próxima entrada les compartiré el patrón, por si a alguna de ustedes se le antoja hacer unos…
