Christmas Tree Coaster | How to crochet a coaster

The Christmas tree has a wonderful history dating as far back as the 16th Century! Over the centuries, it has gone from simply bringing an evergreen tree into the home to being decorated in the fashion we know and love now. In Britain, the tradition of decorating churches and homes with evergreens was long established prior to Queen Victoria’s delight and love of the candlelit Christmas tree which made the custom more wide spread across the country. 

The sight of a decorated tree that is twinkling with lights, will forever warm my heart on a cold winters night. For me, it symbols a time to celebrate the holidays with those that you hold dearest, coming together to share a feast and to give the most precious gift of all, your time. 

This is why this coaster pattern is so, so precious to me and why I am so excited to share it with you. It features one of my favourite textured stitches, the Elizabeth Stitch. The stitch also allows us to work 2 colours at the same time with minimal effort.
