June Coaster Of The Month - Patriotic African Flower Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

African Flower Coaster 
Free Crochet Pattern

By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

June Coaster Of The Month 

I am Very Patriotic and love to design anything with 
Red, White and Blue yarns. I found the Variegated at Michael's
and After using it for my placemats, I just knew I had to make some coasters, too.

I was going to incorporate blue, but could not find one 
that matched the blue in the variegated yarn. 
All of them were too light.
I think they look good even without the blue.

So, now you can make a set of 
4 placemats and 4 coasters for less then 10 bucks!
