Fourth of July crochet coaster

Patriotic crochet pattern - coaster

 

Patriotic Crochet Coaster is a simple but yet very charming project that you can quickly finish and decorate your home to celebrate America on 4th of July.


But off course you don’t need to use them only on Independence Days Celebrations, you can use them year around to show your love for our nation.


They make great housewarming gifts to be used on Veterans Day, Flag Day or Memorial Day. The possibilities are endless to make a festive and colorful decoration.


You can also switch the colors and make it a totally different celebration gift such as birthdays or Mother’s Day.  You can find a ad free PDF file full of step by step pictures on my Etsy Store.

Yarn Selection for crochet coaster or mug rug

 

When choosing the correct yarn for your patriotic crochet coaster or any other crochet item, you need to take into consideration the purpose of your project.

 

Although it is quick warm outside, you might want to use your mug rug when drinking your hot coffee in the morning. If you’re using it with anything hot, the best option is to use 100% cotton yarn.

 

The cotton yarn has a good resistance to heat and will give your coaster a longer life expectance.
