Do you crochet? Or do you want to learn how to crochet? Well, stay tuned because in a few short weeks, I'll be having my very first Crochet-Along right here on this little ol' blog! We'll be choosing a project to work on together and going through the pattern with lots of pictures and lessons on the basics. I've also teamed up with a few of my favorite crocheting friends to help answer any questions you may have, and offer some awesome prizes to those who participate. Excited yet? The crochet along will start at the beginning of February, so keep in touch and you won't miss the fun!
Now onto the pattern! These little flower coasters are perfect under a pint glass (with beer? rootbeer?) or under a mug, perhaps matched up with a mug cozy for a quick gift. Or switch it up, and use it as a facial scrubber. By the way, this will be one of the patterns up for the Crochet-Along pattern vote, so take a look and enjoy! I'm pretty new to writing patterns, so let me know if there's anything that is difficult to understand.
If you'd like to sell items from this pattern or share it with your friends, I just ask that you give credit back to One Dog Woof. Please do not repost or re-distribute the pattern in its entirety. Thanks!
