Meet Anna Mae, she’s the first member of our Chick coaster series. As some of you already know we moved to the country a few months ago. We love our home! I cannot help but have a new coaster for my desk, counter, end table or wherever I might need it. I am offering the Anna Mae as a free crochet pattern for you. You will also be able to get the ad free PDF for free today only. You can find more of my coaster crochet patterns HERE.

Recently I started making my coasters out of Nature Spun 100% Wool. Since I currently don’t have it on hand I chose to go with Peaches & Creme 100% Cotton. I’m sure I will be making it again once I get the Nature Spun in from my LYS.
Right now it is all about using up yarn that I have on hand. I have so much yarn (not necessarily cotton) it’s not even funny. I am working on stitch-in up a lot of it and maybe have a few fun things happening with some before the next shipment comes in.
