Easy Crochet Coasters For Beginners
"Easy crochet coasters are a great beginner project for someone new to crochet. Whether you are a new crocheter or not though, these also make great gifts. Handmade gifts are so treasured because the recipient knows how much effort and love you put into making their gift. When it is warm, a pretty coaster comes in handy to save your furniture from table rings. These pretty colored coasters are made from two skeins of cotton yarn. While you can use an acrylic yarn, I think that the cotton yarn would work much better at absorbing the moisture from your drink."

Finishing: make sure when cutting off yarn that you leave a long enough tail so you can use the yarn needle and weave in the ends. Make sure to weave in the yarn with the same color. When done, cut off the excess.
