Crocheted six-sided coasters are a great addition to any party table. A patriotic coaster with stars and stripes is a great way to show appreciation to this nation. In this case the coaster was made to celebrate a soldier’s home-coming, our nation’s beginnings, the victories and sacrifices people endured to create this great nation, and even for international competition games. This patriotic coaster has the dimensions of ca. ∅ 12.5cm (5in.) Because of the alternating colors, this pattern is not recommended for a beginner.
