Sunflower Coasters

How beautiful are these coasters? They are incredibly easy to work up and only use basic stitches despite looking complicated. I made five of them using less than half a skein of both the gold and brown yarn so they are perfect for those leftovers lurking in your stash!


These would make a perfect housewarming gift, or something to brighten anyone's day.
