Crochet Pattern: Cupster

By Candace – 7 Comments
What is a cupster, exactly? It’s simply a coaster with a lip that cups the bottom of your glass. One benefit of a cupster is that if it fits snugly on the glass, the cupster will stay with it, and you don’t have to worry about making sure your coaster is wherever you set the glass down. crochet_cupster
