Platypus Potholder

Although this was meant to be a potholder, this platypus can also be a funny coaster for your table.  Made to protect your hands when handling hot dishes, it can also decorate and protect a wooden table against hot drinks or spilt water. The pattern is about 11.4″ long and 7″ wide, so you have to modify it slightly to make it smaller or use thin yarn.

Crochet Owl Coaster

This cute owl patten was meant to be an applique, but there is no reason you can’t use it as an animal coaster for small glasses. You can also add a round or two to make in slightly bigger.

Whimsical Pumpkin Coaster

How to crochet a whimsical pumpkin coaster that is perfect for Fall decorating or on the Thanksgiving table under some Pumpkin Spice coffee. You'll need 20 yards of worsted weight cotton yarn per coaster - I used WeCrochet Dishie for mine, but Lily Sugar n Cream, Bernat Handicrafter and Red Heart Smoothie are good alternatives. If you are only making a coaster that will house a cold or hot beverage, you can use acrylic as an alternative (like Red Heart Super Saver) with an I9/5.5mm hook - just do not put anything fresh from the oven on the acrylic coaster, or you will melt the fibers and risk burning yourself. I was able to work up one coaster in just over 15 minutes.
