Pennant Coasters, a Crochet Pattern for the 4th of July

Crochet pattern, 4th of July coasters, Independence Day. Banana Moon Studio

Start now and you can make these cute coasters to celebrate the 4th of July or make them in your own colors to match your decor or event!

These are made in size 10 cotton crochet thread. The pattern is free! It includes the instructions for three different circles. You can make whichever ones you like! I made my coasters double thick, so there are two circles crocheted together around the edges. The nice thing about this method is that you can just tuck your ends inside instead of weaving them in!
