To make the coasters, cast on 8 stitches, and knit all rows until the coaster measures 4″.

To make the charger (which goes under warm dishes on the table), cast on 16 stitches and knit all rows until the charger measures 7″.

I love these for a Thanksgiving table! (PS – click here for instructions to make the gold-painted acorns.)
