This is a pattern to make a napkin holder and coaster with the KISS 20 Peg Triangle Loom
Its perfect for the Mother’s Day table. A fun, fast to make and easy project.

Tools :

-KISS 20 Peg Triangle Loom
-Crochet hook and comb that comes with the KISS Triangle Loom
-Needle (best to use a wool needle)

Materials :

-Drops Andes yarn (I used color way Misty Rose)
-Durable Glam - Byclaire nr.3 sparkle 261 lilac

Instructions napkin holder :

-Take the two yarns together, to make easier put a knot at the beginning of the yarn, this way the yarn s†ays together
-Now you can start weaving your triangle, you always use the two yarns as it is one yarn
-When you weave over and under in the length, then you have to be careful that you go over and under the 2 threads because otherwise you will create loops and you will have to restart
Tip : to avoid any mistake, check every row before starting your next row

-When you finished weaving the triangle, weave in one end
-Take the two longest points and make a round of the triangle, now you place one point over the other, take the point with the thread and take your wool needle, now you sew both layers together by doing an invisible stitch, make a knot and sew in ends, cut off the thread
Congratulations your napkin holder is ready.


On the picture above (the second picture at the left) you see the back of the napkin holder where you sew the points together.

Its also perfect for other celebrations like for example a birthday or for Christmas/New Year’s Eve with a gold or silver sparkling yarn.
