pretty spring crochet coasters

Over at the gorgeous woolhogs, every month they hold a made it challenge. For April, they added a theme ‘seasons’. I really fancied entering and this cute idea popped into my head.

I loved making them, and am hoping to sell some at some local craft fairs if I can take the plunge and be brave!

They are very simple and sweet to make, It’s really just the inside of a granny square, from another fave book of mine, Granny Squares, by Barbara Wilder, Melanie Sturm & Stephanie Gohr.

I used cotton yarn and a 3mm hook, but you can use whatever you like such is the beauty of crochet!

  1. these crochet coasters are very pretty Teresa! I believe you should really go and try to sell them at your local craft fairs; they are so pretty and feminine! 🙂 I hope you will be brave; I’m sure you will! 🙂

  2. These are too cute Teresa! Be brave and take that plunge! Go to the craft fair and show everyone your beautiful work. Last Spring, a friend and I hesitated about submitting a request for a very popular artisinal fair where we would bake up a storm of goodies. In the end, we took the plunge, were accepted and did quite well. It’s hard to step out of our comfort zone, but I say feel the fear and do it anyway!
