DIY Farmhouse style crochet coasters - free crochet pattern

We love crocheted coasters because if you make them with cotton yarn, they’re very absorbent, which is a good thing! And because we like things that are easy to clean ,these beautiful crochet coasters by The Painted Hinge are definite winners over traditional wood coasters! This crochet coaster pattern is super easy and works up quickly . You can use cotton yarn for this pattern because cotton is very absorbent, but of course any worsted weight yarn will work for this pattern as well.
