Crochet Eight Petal Coaster
These make great coasters. Use a coarser choice of yarn. When completed stiffen with a 50/50 mix of crafting paste and water. Soak, squeeze out the excess and block it into shape. Let it dry naturally. Super easy. Super effective. Makes a great gift. Crochet six and gift wrap. Great for using up left over yarn.
