Lollipop-style coaster knitting pattern:

Color A: Cast on 20 sts.

Row 1: sel s, knit all stitches sel s.

Row 2: sel s, k13, p5, sel s.

Rows 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13: slip 1 knitwise, k5, yo, k12, k2tog.

Rows 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14: slip 1 purlwise with yarn in front, k12, p6, sel s. (purl yo stitch through the front loop)

Row 15:  Bind off 7 sts, k6 (the first stitch is already on the right-hand needle), yo, k5, k2tog. (13 sts)

Row 16: slip 1 purlwise with yarn in front, k5, p6, sel s.

Rows 17, 19, 21, 23, 25: slip 1 knitwise, yo, k5, k2tog.

Row 18, 20, 22, 24, 26: slip 1 purlwise with yarn in front, k5, p6, sel s.

Round 27: Bind off 7 sts. At this point, change the yarn color or continue knitting with the main color. Cut the yarn. The first stitch is already on the right-hand needle. Color B: k5, yo, pick up 13 sts through both loops.

Round 28: slip 1 purlwise with yarn in front, k12, p6, sel s. (20 sts)

Repeat the pattern from Row 3 onwards. Knit a total of 6 sections, changing the yarn color each time. At the end bind off all 13 stitches.

Cut the yarn, leaving a tail.

Use a yarn needle and the new tail to join the first and last sections of the coaster together. Use your preferred seaming method or refer to my video tutorial for instructions.

If you’re making a potholder, knit one more coaster and sew them together. Refer to my YouTube video for seaming instructions.

Cut the yarn and weave in all ends. If you’re knitting the potholder, leave all tails inside instead of weaving them in
