Handmade gifts are so treasured because the recipient knows how much effort and love you put into making their gift. When it is warm, a pretty coaster comes in handy to save your furniture from table rings.
Cotton Yarn is Recommended
These pretty colored coasters are made from two skeins of cotton yarn. This can be done with acrylic yarn, but I think that the cotton yarn would work much better at absorbing the moisture from your beverage.

Gift Giving Handmade Crochet
I mentioned how nice this would be to give as a gift; however, if you are like me, having these in colors of my home would be even better. Give these lovely coasters with a new serving pitcher, or a couple of classes and cups, or another cute beverage container.
This would also be well received by a teacher, bus driver, mail person, or even a men’s gift. Just think of this done in a rich green and brown color, grey and white, deep mauve and teal. the color combinations are plentiful. Experiment with your favorite colors.
In you plan on only making on, which is hard to stop at, this does not take much yarn. I used 2 skeins because I wanted to contrasting colors,
With this crochet pattern and 2 skeins of yarn I made 12 crochet coasters! Very budget friendly.

This pattern begins with the magic circle, which is sometimes called the magic ring. If you are not familiar with this technique. You can see a step-by-step tutorial here.
Begin with a magic ring
Round 1: CH 1, Work 12 HDC in the circle. Join with SL ST to the top of the first HDC.
Round 2: CH 1, Work 1 HDC in same ST as CH 1. Work 2 HDC in each ST around. Join to the first HDC with SL ST.
Round 3: CH 1, Work 1 HDC in first ST. *Work 1 HDC in next ST. Work 2 HDC in next ST.* Repeat from * to * around ending with a HDC in the first ST. SL ST into the first HDC.
Round 4: CH 1, Work 1 HDC in first ST. *Work 1 HDC in next 2 ST. Work 2 HDC in next ST.* Repeat from * to * around ending with a HDC in the first ST. SL ST into the first HDC.
Round 5: Work a SC all the way around in each ST ending with a SL ST into the first SC.
Finishing: make sure when cutting off yarn that you leave a long enough tail so you can use the yarn needle and weave in the ends. Make sure to weave in the yarn with the same color. When done, cut off the excess.
The crochet coasters that I made, the colors were changed for either row 4 or row 5.
Here are some photos to help you see the difference.

These are quick to make. Our family just loves them. I just love the look of these on the table tops throughout the house.
I already have my holiday colors picked out and waiting for me to get done with my current project. I want to make some of these in red and white or green and white…or maybe both.
These would be so cute as a gift too. They work up so quickly.
