Fruity Crochet Apple Coasters Pattern – Perfect For Teachers Gifts   

I had an idea to make some apple coasters a long time ago, way way back when I made some apple tags, but I had completely forgotten about this until recently when I came across some green wool in my stash which was the same colour as these previous tags. I wasn’t going to wait any longer to get some made in case they got forgotten about again so I got cracking and put a pattern for some together.

I opted to just make three coasters to start, a front and back and a middle piece, but you could add in more middle pieces too if you wanted a few more coasters in the set. I opted to use green but you could use red if you prefer.
