The Fallen Leaves crochet coaster pattern is the perfect Fall project – so quick and easy to make and great for stash busting. Use your favourite Fall colours or different shades of green for Spring leaves. It also works well for bunting/garlands.
I’ve chosen to use the chainless starting double crochet for this project as it gives a cleaner finish. However, feel free to substitute with a chain 2 if that’s what you prefer.
