Lemon sorbet coaster

This is a variation on the grit stitch placemat and coaster pattern using some Rowan creative linen and Sirdar Snuggly Bubbly that I found in a sale.

I chained 16 for the starting row and completed 12 rows for a square coaster. Then instead of SC all around the edge in the same yarn, I fastened off and used a yarn needle to sew an edging with the bubbly yarn – the gaps between the bubbles were too short to get the effect I wanted by crocheting.
