Making a quick decoration for the festive season can be exciting, hence the concept of this easy crochet Christmas coaster pattern.
I wanted a matching set with my other Santa themed crochet Christmas decorations and couldn’t resist the idea of making a crochet coaster perfect for Christmas.
The great thing about this piece is that it works up pretty quickly and a perfect stash buster especially for those random festive colored yarn from other projects.
Have a look at the other crochet Christmas collections here on my blog.
