Crochet Peppermint Coasters

I haven’t been doing a lot of crocheting this season. Last year I was over loaded with making bun beanies by requests. I may make a few more but right now I am fixing to get busy crocheting some baby blankets for little nieces due the first of the year. yes my family continues to grow. I love it. 

But first I decided to make some cute mug coasters. I always use coasters under my cups. I do not like to hear my cup hit the hard table when I place it down. If I do not have a coaster handy, I will grab a napkin to use. I have made myself several coasters with cotton yarn. I like that I can just toss them in the washing machine when they become dirty.  

When I found a pattern for these peppermint coasters, I knew I had to make few. 

I love how they came out and were really simple to make (if your a crocheter of course). Jack over at Shipslog once said. “You guys always amaze me I can never see where you start or end the task”. 
I take that as a compliment. It means I’m doing it right. With these disk shapes, the start is in the center and the end is on the outer edge. Once finished, the yarn is tied off with a crocheters knot and the yarn tails are weaved in and out of the stitches to hide. 

I made a couple of these coaster for myself to enjoy during the Christmas season and I have a listing for them in my Etsy shop. I think they are going to be fun to use around the house as I will be decorating in reds and whites this year. 

You can find these ready to use coasters and more in my Etsy shop at LiLiDi
