The “For the Love of Tulips” coaster features my own unique take on the tulip stitch with bigger, fuller tulip flowers and a contrasting background to better highlight the flowers. If you’re like me and love everything vintage but like a nice & modern twist, this will make the perfect little set of coasters for you!

Hi! I would love to test this beautiful crochet pattern for you, but I don’t have Instagram and don’t have a blocking board. I have an iron but don’t know what kind it is and if I can use it as a steamer. I’ll get back to you as soon as I have more information on this As I don’t have Instagram, I can’t promote the pattern when it’s released, but I can send you pictures a number of ways, like through email or messages on Ribblr.
I can meet all of these requirements except for the things specified above, and when I have more information on some of the things I’m not sure about I’ll get back to you ASAP. It’s totally ok if you don’t want me to test this pattern because of the things above, I totally understand
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
(if you think it’s ok for me to test this pattern, please send me the link to your application form since I don’t have Instagram )
Is there a place where I can view your crochet work (such as a Ravelry page, for instance)?
The blocking board can be easily replaced by your ironing table/towel on your bed, and if you don’t have a steamer you can always wet block your crochet/knit items (this applies to any project, not just mine!). Do NOT use your regular iron on your knitwear unless the label expressly says it’s okay!
I do have a Ravelry page, I’m fairly new to it but could use that If you have an email account then I can make a Google doc and share it with you I could also make a journal on Ribbr for the pattern
Whatever works for you is great!
