Crochet these coasters in multiple colors and everyone will know which beverage is theirs! And since the coaster stays with the glass, you'll avoid rings on the furniture (as well as drips). These make great party favors too!

Hi Drew,

I am trying to make these coasters cause they are SUPER cute! I have two questions:

1. Is the coaster an actual circle or an odd type circle?

2. Once I got to the straps im totally lost! Is there any other way to explain it?

I hope im not being a bother. You do a fantastic job by the way!
