Turtle Coaster Knitting Kit - Project 5 from First Time Knits

This turtle coaster is the fifth project from First Time Knits, and is perfect to keep your favourite mug company. You’ll need the First Time Knits book for the knitting pattern, if you don’t already have it, and then you use the materials in this kit to make it. There is an option to buy the kit with or without the book.

The turtle coaster uses all the skills learnt in the first four projects from the book, but also introduces working in knit and purl to create moss stitch alongside a new sewing technique.
