Wednesday’s Mug Rug
"This pattern is for a boho style coaster (mug rug) with tassels in the arcade stitch. It is one size but can easily be adapted by changing hook/yarn size. I used a DK cotton to make it more sturdy and washable. This yarn is Drops Muskat in 3 different shades of pink and a light grey. The hook used is a 3.5mm. You only need a minimal amount of each colour. You could also do the pattern in one colour and leave out the colour changes."
