Easter Egg Coaster Crochet Pattern

I've been making a lot of these Easter egg coasters. I like to decorate them with these little bunny appliques but you can also use bows, buttons, sequins, etc. to make them fancier. They are very easy and quick to crochet. Using an I hook, they are approximately 5 1/2 inches long and 4 inches wide. You can get a slightly larger one using a J or K hook. They also make nice appliques for shirts and bags.
