It is spring and I don’t know about you but when warmer weather is on the horizon I start thinking of all the fun things I can crochet that aren’t winter hats and scarves!
These quick and easy crochet coasters are great for using up those scraps of cotton yarn you have taking up valuable space in your stash. I chose to do them all in solid colors but they would look great in multiple colors. It would really make that center flower pop!
I based these coasters on my May Flowers Granny Square.
Are you doing any craft fairs this spring and summer season? These crochet coasters would be a great addition to your tables. Crochet up a set in coordinating colors and package them together. with a piece of twine.
I ended up gifting my set to to my mom for an early Mother’s Day gift. They will be a perfect addition to her sun room.
Before we get started don’t forget to pin this to your favorite crochet board on Pinterest!!
