Create Adorable Crochet Dishcloths and Coasters

Looking for a crochet housewarming gift?

Crochet dishcloths and coasters make perfect kitchen housewarming presents. The Flutterby pattern is so easy to crochet – you can quickly make them up for all your family and friends.

Or, you can just save all of the cuteness for yourself and take a much needed coffee (or tea) break with your new coasters. I won’t tell anyone.

I love to design crochet pieces with built-in borders. This little mitered crochet square frames up so simply as a coaster or dishcloth.

So grab your crochet hook. You will be delighted with the results as either of these projects work up surprisingly fast.

Dishcloth and Coaster Pattern Notes

By the way, the Flutterby is also a blanket, too. 

Please take time to create a gauge sample before beginning work and adjust hook size as needed.

Only light blocking if necessary for this piece.

The yarn used for this blanket contains natural fiber and requires special laundering. Please read yarn labels and follow directions to maintain the life of your crochet work.
