Free Crochet Coaster Pattern.
I needed a new crochet coaster for my desk, and this is what I came up with. It’s simple and quick to crochet, making it easy for a beginner as well.
The finished size measures 4″ across, making it the perfect size for my favorite tea mug. What can I say, I love my tea … it keeps me hydrated and energized while I work. And as you can see, my cup is always full. :)
Last, but not least, since this has such a pretty lace, you might even enjoy this in a cool afghan as well. Or crochet up a small treasure bag for your child by sewing it two together along three edges and attaching a small handle.
