One of the things I love most about Christmas as a DIY fan is how the house always gets redecorated to suit the spirit of this magical time. It gives us, crochet and knitting lovers, so much room to show off our skills! The same thing applies to gift making, which I also adore. Let’s get back to decorations, though – what’s your idea of the perfect Christmas table setting? An elegant tablecloth is a must, but if you want the cherry on top, you should think about a set of crochet Festive Coasters as well. It will take some time and skill, but if you want to create the magical Christmas atmosphere, I promise it’s going to be worth it. After all, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, right?

Christmas Coasters Free Knitting Pattern
This adorable pattern also requires some skill in double knitting technique, but if you haven’t mastered that yet, you can knit it in the round instead. The snowflake motif is inspired by the traditional Scandinavian craft this time and the colors shout Christmas like no others.
