Solid Granny Coasters Pattern


Summer vacation is in full swing at my house and my boys are running wild! Their favorite summer holiday is the 4th of July - partly because they get to scarf on hot dogs and treats and partly because they get to watch things explode!

Aside from explosions and fireworks, I wanted to add some patriotic touches to my new patio set
Create crocheted coasters in all kinds of colors, combinations and themes to match or contrast your home d├ęcor, patio furniture or even office. I use Red Heart Super Saver or Lily Sugar’n Cream depending on personal preference or colors I’m going for.

Red Heart Super Saver is great for coasters made with sports team or school colors. The cotton yarn is nice because it’s so durable and washable, especially if your coasters have to endure spills and drips. Lily Sugar’n Cream comes in nice variegated color schemes too.
