{Crochet} Capsicum Coasters Pattern

easy crochet coaster

Here is a super easy crochet coaster pattern that I’m calling the #crochetcapsicumcoaster as it reminds me of the cross section of a capsicum. Do you think it does, or is it just me?

I’ve used Heirloom Cotton 8ply which is available from Yummy Yarn and co (shameless plug) but any 8ply cotton or cotton blend yarn would be suitable. Here we go –

  2. Hello! I really love your crochet patterns and the colours you use. I really like these little capsicum coasters and appreciate the US terminology for that is how I learned to crochet!
