The array of Narcissi ‘tête-à-tête’ not only bring me sunshine, but also captures my attention straight away with their delicate clusters of golden-yellow bells that are shivering in the spring breeze. Thanks to the warmth of the gentle sunshine that has wakened up their tiny yellow bells.

Using yarn A, make an adjustable ring
Rnd 1: ch-3 (count as 1tr), work 13tr into ring, ss into third chain from beg of round to join = 14sts. Do not break yarn A (leave it hanging).
Rnd 2: Join in yarn B, ch-3 (count as 1tr), work 1tr into same place as ch-3, then 2tr in each of next 13sts, ss into third ch from beg of round to join =28sts.
Rnd 3: Pick up yarn A from round 1, ch-3 (count as 1tr), *(work 2tr in next st, then 1tr in next st) rep *() 12 times more, 2tr in last st, ss into third ch from beg of round to join = 42sts.
Rnd 4: Pick up yarn B, *(ch-3, miss 2sts, then 1dc in next st), rep *() 13 times more, ss into first st of round to join = 14 chain spaces.
Rnd 5: Continue with yarn B, work 1dc into first ch sp, ch-2, 7tr in same ch sp, *(1dc into next ch sp, ch-2 and 7tr in same ch sp), rep *() 12 times more, ss into beg of first ch sp.
Fasten off and weave in all yarn ends. Ensure gently tighten adjustable ring before weave in end.
Be different – try switching the colours around to create your own designs. Note: using a different type of yarn may change the size of the coaster!
