You can use any colors you like or even make a one-colored coaster. Thanks to adding a row of Back Post half double crochet (BPhdc) stitches and finishing work with a row of Crab Stitches (sometimes it is also called reversed single crochet) this pattern will look great in all variations.

For crochet coasters you see on the photos I used organic cotton 50 gr/117 yards and a hook 3,75 mm (F).

The size of finished item is 13 cm x 13 cm
