8-ball Applique Crochet Pattern
They keep the muck out of your cup holders by soaking up condensation and little splashes.
Not much explanation needed there, right? We've all had this happen. Use cotton for maximum absorption and toss them in the wash as needed.
You are on your way to avoiding the dusty hairballs mixed with sand and crumbs.
I even made a coin pouch from them. Click HERE for the tutorial.

Chain does not count as a stitch. Start each new round in the 2nd space.
You may crochet over the white tails or sew them in later.
R1: using white, ch 2, hdc 6 in the 2nd ch from hook, join in the first stitch of the round, ch1– 6 sts
R2: 2 hdc in the next st, join with black, break off the white, ch 1 — 12 sts
R3: using black, *hdc, 2 hdc in the next st; repeat from * around, join, ch 1– 18 sts
R4: *hdc 2, 2 hdc in the next st; repeat from * around, join, ch 1 — 24 sts
R5: *hdc 3, hdc inc2 hdc in the next st; repeat from * around, join, skip 1, slip st, fasten off and sew in your tails — 30 sts
Use black and yarn needle to sew the 8 in the center. I started in the very center and worked one ‘loop’ of the number, back to the center, and worked the other loop.
For extra definition, I ran a long black tail underneath the stitches to visually clean up around the center.
Enjoy them as coasters, too! Click HERE for the Smiley Applique or Cup Holder Liner pattern.
