As I was looking for a Christmas gift I could make myself quickly, I found this pattern on Pinterest from www.petalstopicots.com
All I needed was some yarn and a hook and in less than an hour I got a classy coaster!
White and red size 4 medium worsted cotton yarn
Size 4.0mm crochet hook
Play around with the colours a bit to customize the feel of them. I made a set of plain white for a snowy wintery feel, as well as a pair of red and white to be more Christmas-y! I then played around even more with the colours and pattern to get a special made ~pokeball coaster~ If you want to make one too, I wrote down what I did *but* I didn't test the pattern so feel free to test it for me XD If any problems with the stitches come up, I'll correct it below!
