I’ll admit it, I don’t always use coasters. But wouldn’t you rather protect your furniture? Plus, the Little Dots Coaster works up so quickly, there’s really no excuse for having rings of condensation on your table.
If coasters aren’t your thing, check out my roundup below the pattern featuring 18 free crochet and knitting patterns for winter white décor. I’ve included blankets, pillows, washcloths, sachets, and even a tablet cover and a wall hanging, so you’re sure to find something perfect for your home. (And, if you’re not a fan of winter white, you can always customize these patterns in your own favorite color!)
