Cordial Coasters for Friendly Get-Togethers

Skill Level: 

Cordial is a braided cord-like bulky weight yarn that's great for macrame but you can also use it to knit and crochet. Its sturdy durability makes it great to use in crochet patterns for the home. Here we'll share four crochet coaster patterns that use Cordial in Neon and Natural Colors. The coasters are thick, so they'll stay flat on tables even in a breeze, and they are absorbent so they're great for your cold drinks - perfect for all of your spring and summer parties!
