If you’re looking for a quick knit for nearly any occasion, a coaster knitting pattern is just what you need! The end of the school year is drawing near, and if you have children, you may want to consider knitting a special gift for the teacher(s) in your children’s lives. Think of how much they do for our children and for us, in helping to shape their minds and lives and prepare them for the future. In that spirit, here is a pretty, easy, and very quick pattern for a knitted coaster with a heart stamped in the center. You can knit it using two colors, as it is in the linked pattern, but you can also knit it with just one color, or even in a multicolored yarn, using the pattern below!
