Crochet Eight Petal Coaster

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.

Size 4.50m hook
Darning needle

Slip st to join the ring
Ch 3 (counts as 1dc), 15 dc into the ring. A total of 15 dc's + 3ch.

8 loops in all.
