Our place is starting to look more and more like Christmas – the tree is up, though still looking a little bare, a few Christmas cards have arrived and are on display, and we’ve switched our usual couch cover with a bright red cover. I wanted to add a few more holiday touches and decided on making Christmas coasters that could also be used as tree ornaments!
Crochet Christmas Star Coasters
These coasters work up quickly and you can use any colour combination you want. You can also adjust the size by using different sized crochet hooks. You can also change the shape by adding more starting stitches. For example there is a 6 sided star that made by starting with 12 double crochet instead of 10. Play around and see what you come up with!
-Worsted weight yarn in colour of choice. I’m using Bernat – Berry, Bernat – Kelly Green, and Bernat – White
