Another very easy crochet pattern with instructions to make simple crocheted rounds that can be used as coasters, Christmas ornaments, gift tags; for garlands and bunting; or – if stitched together – as a table runner or even a blanket or a throw.
This pattern makes coasters in an ideal size for smaller cups, water glasses, or shot glasses. The finished coaster can be ironed plain and round, or pinned and ironed to a star-like effect. Coasters are a perfect hostess or housewarming gift. They don’t take much space, they travel and store easily, they never go bad, and they instantly refresh any decor while tastefully protecting beloved furniture from the dreadful circles. And who knows? Maybe you’ll get hooked (wink) and make a whole set! One can never have too many coasters – especially those handmade with love!
And, if crocheted in lace thread and then pinned and ironed as a star, this pattern will help you decorate your Christmas tree with adorably rustic, handmade snowflake ornaments. Better start crocheting now, so that you have a couple dozens ready by next holidays!
