Description: If you're a fan of traditional hooked rugs, then you'll love these coasters inspired by their homespun style. The thirsty table savers are made using French knots stitched with embroidery floss on linen or other cross stitch fabric. (We used 28 ct Summer Khaki Cashel Linen.) And don't be afraid of French knots—simply follow our stitch diagram and instructions to create them easily and beautifully. Besides, with the knots placed so closely together, they don't have to be perfect. So pick your favorite design and create a matching set of coasters or stitch all three for a charming assortment. Patterns and full instructions are included.

I have to say, I've never been a fan of french knots. But, by placing these so close together, it doesn't matter if you're knots are perfect. I've also noticed that as I've worked on these, my knots are getting much more consistent and even. So, I figure I'll end up with a cute coaster and probably lose my fear of french knots.
