Crochet Pattern - Snowflake Coasters

{09.12.17}

Hello! I uploaded episode 6 of my crochet podcast earlier in the week in which I showed some lovely sparkle thread I bought from LoveKnitting. It has inspired lots of festive crochet. I came up with these little snowflake coasters and thought I would share the pattern here.

These are perfect December makes; they take very little time but look so lovely dotted around the house…I will be using mine for the Christmas table this year. You could even bundle up a batch of these with some Christmas coffee/tea as a last minute gift…gahhh I just love Christmas.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy them as much as I have…
