Snowflake or Christmas Cookie Coaster
I am still in Christmas mood and have looked into felting some coasters. I wanted to crochet a simple and quick project, that still looks nice and has a winter theme.
Below you find a free pattern for a felted coaster, that looks like a cookie or an ice crystal, depending on the colours you choose for your project.
Happy crocheting and a blessed Christmas!

Note: This pattern is written with US crochet terms. If you are more familiar with UK, Danish or German crochet terms, see my translation Crochet Chart. It shows you crochet terms in these 4 languages.
If you prefer crochet charts, I made a chart for the coaster. If you are unfamiliar with reading charts, see my Tutorial how to read a Crochet Chart Motif.
With 2 strands of yarn sew the pattern beneath on top of the coaster.
Felt the coaster in the washing machine at 30 Celcius/85 Fahrenheit. I used the program for washing wool.
Below you see how I made a snowflake with the same pattern.
