Explanations for crochet coasters
These coasters are really made in no time, they are colorful and with them, you will give a touch of color to your summer tables! They are also a quick and unusual gift idea, so treasure it and use it at the right time!
They are worked in rounds, just remember to change color at the end of each row (when you are working the slip stitch).
To make striped crochet coasters you will need:
- 2 skeins of Fettuccine in two different colors (Paeonia and Azure)
- 10 mm crochet hook, you can find those beautiful Maplewood hooks here!
- tapestry needle
