Crochet Boho Coasters

I’m running low on yarn. I do not have enough in my stash to make anything large or in bulk. This has been a good time for me to use up some of those small pieces. There is a craft store that has stayed open here in town that carries a large selection of yarn but refuse to stand in a mile long while they limit the number of shoppers. They need to limit the shopping time for shoppers if you ask me. I mean, who wants to wait outside for an hour so Betty can make up her mind on a craft she wants to begin with no idea where to start?

Summer will be here soon and that gives me beach vibes. One of my favorite summer styles is boho. I love the natural or mixed colors, handmade looks, twill and fringe. That’s when the idea came across to create these cute boho style coasters. 

It has been a while since I crocheted any mug coasters. I love having a coaster under my cup because I hate the clinging sound it makes when it hits the table. Plus It gives me a focal spot to place my mug (That’s just one of my OCD things). 

They were fun and easy to make. I have seen most of these made with macrame. I remember macrame use to be big in the 70’s and 80’s. Well it’s back.

I found two small balls of cotton yarn in my remnants. This was perfect since I needed to use two strands of yarn together to get a macrame look. 

If you crochet, you can find the pattern for these cuties HERE
I have put this set in my Etsy shop and hope they sell. I like them so much, I may just have to bite the bullet and go stand in line for more yarn.

What are you makeing?
