Here’s a wee little stash-busting project from Make Ready blog that’s great for people learning to make I-cord or just those who love coffee and tea.
It’s a spiral of I-cord worked with roving inside for extra insulation and with scraps of sportweight yarn. You can even use more than one color in each coaster to use up little bits, or make a bunch in the same color if you’d rather.
Getting started with the roving inside the cord can be a little awkward at first, but once you get the rhythm it’s pretty quick and easy. Sew it into a circle when you’re done and you have a great way to add a little knitting to your morning or to your desk at work.
