Nil Mal Crochet Coaster Pattern by Crochet For You.
“Nil Mal” means blue flowers in my mother language. Can you pronounce it? Nil Mal…
I made six of them as a gift for my mom’s friend. Her favorite color was blue (Nil) so I selected blue for the main color for these coasters and they are exactly like flowers (Mal). The name of Nil Mal came to my mind at once when I finished first coaster.
I didn’t use any special stitches. Simple is always beautiful. I enjoyed this pattern very much and didn’t take too much time to crochet as well.
