Crochet coasters are among the easiest patterns to make. At their simplest, they are just circles (or squares or even hexagons), allowing you to play with stitches and texture worked in the round. As you will see with these coaster crochet patterns, you can create crochet coasters that reflect every season or holiday, favorite hobbies and decor style, just by changing the colors and design details and adding edging or stitching. Crochet coasters add style to your table, showcase the theme of parties, and make great gift sets. You can also use coaster patterns to make motifs that can be used in bunting or as wall art.
