I've always been fascinated by petroglyphs. Friends who've traveled with me could tell you tales of being dragged hundreds of miles off the direct route, just so I could see some petroglyphs. Of spending hours following vague directions along dirt roads and hiking trails in search of rock art. Once on a vacation to Hawaii I fell in love with the Hawaiian petroglyphs. I had just learned stranded color knitting and pictured these simple line figures knit up.
These quick and easy coasters are one of the results. They're a wonderful way to use up worsted weight leftovers. They're also a great project to learn stranded knitting. Almost any inconsistency in the beginner's tension will literally come out in the wash when the coaster is felted.
The set includes four designs:
Pandanus Leaf Fan This design is based on a petroglyph believed to be a fan plaited from pandanus leaves.
Dancing Man This man may be running, but I prefer to think of him as dancing.
