Crochet Coasters

A friend at work asked me to make her some crocheted coasters in pretty bright colours.  I saw this as a perfect opportunity to design my own crochet coaster pattern. I’m very pleased with the result as is my friend and I now have lots of requests to make more. With Easter on the horizon I needed something to brighten my coffee table so I thought that these were the perfect addition, easy to make and fast to work up they add a beautiful touch of bright colour.  You can make them in endless colour combinations to suit your taste and they are the perfect gift, they can be so individual.  You could sell them selling fast at a craft fair on a market stall and the added bonus is that they are a brilliant stash buster.
