This simple coaster can be made by a crochet beginner, yet is still nice enough for an advanced crocheter to make as well. It is a single crochet square made in rows, with a border around it. There is a video and chart to help, making this a great learning project.
These coasters work very nicely with my Stripy Single Crochet Placemat.
