These cute coffee cup coasters are a really nice small project to learn how to do double knitting. Double knitting is a technique that gives you a two-sided project, each in stockinette. The finished project is completely reversible and great for interesting color work. It’s often used for scarves, or in this case coasters.
elow are a few videos I used that were helpful for me to get started. After looking at a lot of different patterns, this is one I developed that worked with worsted weight yarn (I used cotton.) A lot of the patterns available on Ravelry use much smaller yarn (such as these amazing Hogwarts book scarves), but when I was first learning I wanted a project that would come together quickly with worsted weight yarn.
These are the video tutorials I used to help me and are referenced in the coaster pattern:
