Crochet Mug Rug

Crochet mug rug – The perfect item to give as a little gift or to make for yourself, use these coasters to give a splash of color on  your side and coffee tables, make with or without the tassels.

I have crocheted them in an acrylic worsted weight yarn but you can use the same ply in cotton if you wish.
