In addition to making fun coasters, these crochet rounds are a fantastic starting point for all kinds of projects. You’ll use some basic stitches and your favorite cotton, cotton blend or acrylic yarn for this simple pattern. Since each coaster is so small, this a great project for using up that scrap yarn.
You can use them to make home decor, throw pillows, afghans and even little pouches similar to our heart shaped one. Stay tuned and we’ll be sharing different ways to use these easy crochet coasters in the coming months.
