Happy Wednesday, KUTD-ers! It’s nearly Halloween and so I thought something festive and holiday-related was in order. Today’s free KUTD-able pattern suggestion is the awesome Candy Corn Coaster pattern from Linda Buntin over at Boogie Socks. So cool!

These little candy corn coasters are perfect for your mugs of warm apple cider or hot chocolate this fall. Be sure to pick up some worsted weight cotton in orange, yellow, and white to get started. The author used Lily’s Sugar’n’Cream cotton, but any will do. You’ll also need to scare up some US size 7 needles. The completed triangle coaster is 5″ and makes for some cute and functional decor.

As a quick pattern note, the author recommends changing colors on the odd numbered rows so that the changes are neat and straight, so you’ll want to keep this in mind. I love that it’s a super quick  knit, which means it’s easy to make a complete matching set for your coffee table in time for Halloween :) 

Speaking of Halloween, hope you and yours have a fun (and safe) holiday! May you find more treats than tricks ;)  See you back here Monday!
