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

Patriotic African Flower 
Free Crochet Pattern
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!
