Seedling Pumpkin Coasters
By Mistie Bush
The Seedling Pumpkin Coasters are made using basic crochet stitches and a Boye H hook. I used the Seedling Yarn by Classic Elite. I love the feel of this yarn and using it for coasters is great. When a glass has been sitting on it for hours the moisture does not go through to the furniture.

Hook: Boye H
CA = color A
CB = color B
Ch/chs = chain/chains
Hdc = half double crochet
Sl st = slip stitch
Sp/sps = space/spaces
