Designed By Julie A. Bolduc
This coaster design uses this month's featured stitch Waffle Variation and then is edged with a contrasting color.
The name of this coaster derives from the river which flows by Sugarloaf Mountain here in Maine. I could not come up with a better name for it so when this happens, I will use towns, rivers, and mountains in Maine to name crochet items I design.
