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.

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.

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.

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.
