Easy Crochet Pattern
This beginner crochet pattern is Pretty and useful. Full tutorial on how to make your own colorful crochet sunshine coaster. Create different looks by changing the colors for your own unique style.
Cotton Yarn is Recommended
These pretty colored coasters are made from cotton yarn. While you can use an acrylic yarn, I think that the cotton yarn would work much better at absorbing the moisture from your drink. There are so many beautiful colors of cotton yarn that would be perfect for this project.
Frugal DIY Idea
You don’t have to start with new skeins of cotton yarn. This is a yarn stash buster crochet pattern. I was able to use 4 skeins to make 8 of the larger coasters and 8 of the smaller coasters with yarn still left over.
These would also be a wonderful gift to give for a co-worker or teacher or even a wedding shower gift for the participants.
Pair this with a mug or some other beverage container for a nice gift set. If you are like me, when you receive something handmade, I like it even more.

Closeup of Coasters

Cut the yarn leaving about 10 inches on the yarn. Pull the yarn through to the back of the project and using the yarn needle weave in the yarn working in a few different directions. Cut off excess yarn. Enjoy your handmade project!
Changing Color Hint
When changing color, pull the loop of the new color through the previous color loop. Pull the previous color loop snug. Continue crocheting with the new color of yarn. I have found that for this type of project it conceals the color change the best.
