Set the table!

I have a set of dishes that is a simple service for two. I use these for Jos and I every day since it is easier than getting out our good set of dishes. We are big soup lovers and with cold weather coming, I decided to do a fun project while I was still at Cranberry Cottage since I had finished my autumn throw.


So I went to Zeeman and bought some of their chunky Nigra yarn in taupe.


I used a coaster pattern on Karen's blog which you can find here. Using a chunky yarn and 4,5mm hook, I was able to make the coaster larger to use as a soup bowl coaster.


I also adapted the pattern to create a matching placemat for the plates. It will work with my large and small plates very well. I love having this little set now to use with our simple every day dishes.

  1. For a long time you have been wanting these. Kristy was suppose to be making some. LOL.
    Oh well, you made your own now. They came out so cute. Now you can make sets in all colors with scrap yarn and oh, maybe you should make four, just in case. hahahaha.
    Love you, Mom
