Okay, finally, time to post this simple but fabulous pattern! As I may have mentioned (more than a couple times) before, I really really love this stitch pattern. You can’t have too many coasters, especially when it’s still in the upper 90s to 100s here and the cold drinks are extra drippy… Make these in some bright colors for an extra fresh & breezy feel!
