Knitted Tulip

These flowers will never wilt! Knit a tulip, felt a tulip, or create a combination of both like in the bouquet pictured above. Change the size of the tulip by simply using a different weight of yarn. Place finished flowers in a vase you already have. They can go on the dining room table or even in the bedroom.

Knit Edge Hankie

This project is all about scraps! Since no one is keen on wiping their mouths on a knitted napkin, just use your favorite edge stitches to add a lovely border around napkins you already have. Feeling ambitious? Use scrap fabrics to make the napkin, too!

Constellation Napkin Rings

This pattern comes with instructions to make four different constellations beaded onto the napkin ring. Designer KTLV  says this is a good introduction to beading and chart reading because of the easy stockinette background.

Bunting will make a simple yet fun decoration for any room of the house. You can make this one from scrap yarn in complementary colors, String it above a doorway, across the wall, or even along the edge of the dining room table.

Scalloped Coasters

Switch out your usual coasters with pretty knitted ones. (You could even knit up some extras as gifts while you're at it.) I like the idea of using variegated yarns, but you can go for a neutral or brightly colored solid if it matches your decor better.

Mug Cozy

Mug cozies add a colorful touch to your mugs. They're especially handy if you're serving hot coffee or tea. (This homemade chai tea recipe is a real crowd pleaser.)

Barley Tea Cosy

Speaking of tea, you can slip this cosy over even your blandest teapot and no one will ever know what's underneath. You can knit up some matching coasters if you have extra yarn leftover.
