Flower Power Coaster – Free crochet pattern
This 7 Round Flower Power crochet coaster pattern is quick and fun to make. Crochet coasters make great gifts and are the perfect project for using up leftover bits of yarn. I’m calling this coaster pattern Flower Power as it reminds of the floral prints that were popular in the 70s.
These coasters have been made from Patons Cotton Blend 8ply yarn, with a 4mm hook.
