Flower Coaster Free Pattern

Happy Saturday everyone!
Here's what we woke up to in our house this morning..

Christmas is now fast approaching. Have you made your gift list yet? I'm planning on making as many gifts as I can for my family and friends, so that means lots of cute little projects that I can finish in one sitting.

I came up with this pattern after making a few mug cozys with this yarn. I thought it would make a perfect flowery coaster, so here it is! Cotton yarn is preferred to absorb any condensation or spills, but I used acrylic for these. They can be machine washed, so I'm not too worried about them getting dirty.

Of course, this pattern is super simple, so even if you don't crochet, just check out a few how to videos on youtube and you can get started!
