Free Carnation Coaster Crochet Pattern

This is a very easy pattern that works up super fast! This pattern is for a set of 4 summery coasters. I used Caron X Pantone yarn. For a 4 coaster set you need less then 1 braid. You could easily make a set of 6 from 1 braid if you wanted. You can really make this pattern your own depending on color choice. You can make the whole coaster one color or you can switch it up anywhere through out the pattern to create a unique and personalized set. Using only a few stitches this pattern is great for beginners or those looking for a quick make.

An Ad free Printable PDF version will be available on both Etsy and Raverly(This post contains affiliate links. Purchasing through these links will not cost you anything extra, but I will gain a small commission from the respective companies)

Hope you enjoy this pattern and don’t forget to tag me in any Instagram photos of your finished coasters!!!!!! I really look forward to seeing what color combos you all choose (@knottygurlcrochet #carnationcoas…
