free crochet pattern coasters thecuriocraftsroom the curio crafts room scheepjes catonaLast week I selected some teeny tiny 10g cutie pie Catona balls (I can come up with even more adjectives for these yummy, fun and addictive small balls if necessary ;-) for a little project and today I have the free pattern for you! I designed a crystal motif that you can use as coasters or as Christmas ornaments. They would look lovely in white and you could make a very festive garland with perhaps a touch of glitter. I myself went for coasters as I never really decorate much for Christmas.
