Fun Crochet Coasters
"Sometimes it's just fun to dress up the table a bit. And what is better suited for that then these cute little coasters? I used small amounts of cotton left over from previous projects, making them easily washable. Of course, other types of yarn would also work perfectly fine. Easy to make and lots of fun. A very cheerful to use up those little ends of yarn! This pattern is written in American English crochet terminology."
