Crocheted Coasters Pattern

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

As many of you know I am making dishcloths for the 52 Weeks of Dishcloths.  I have a lot of yarn left over from making the dishcloths.  I don't want to keep using the same yarn for each one so I came up with the idea to make crocheted coasters with the left over yarn.

Here is a Crocheted Coaster I made out of kitchen cotton yarn.
    

For the yarn I used Martha Stewart cotton hemp yarn in the color Peacock.


I love the way the coaster came out and this is easy and fast to crochet.  I have an easy crocheted coaster patten to share with you.  How about making coasters for the summer?  The pattern was given to me by Maggie @BeachPlumStore who is on twitter.


Crocheted Coaster Pattern

Crochet hook - size I - 5 1/2mm
Yarn used - Martha Stewart Crafts cotton hemp
Color yarn - Peacock

sl st - slip stitch
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet
sts - stitches

1) Chain 5, sl st to join to make circle, ch 1
2) sc 7 times in ring, ch 1
3) sc 2 times in each st, ch 2
4) hdc 2 times in each st, ch 2
5) *dc 2 in next 2 sts, dc 1 in next st* - repeat all the way around

Note:  If it is starting to get too bunched up, drop a stitch by only 1 in each st, instead of 2.  (Try and make it lay flat).

This is made in US terminology.

* These coasters can be made with any color yarn to go with the different holidays of the year!

  10. One can never have enough coaster, especially when you have a big family that likes to leave their glasses sitting around (even when they are not supposed to, lol).
    By the way it is nice to meet you and hope to talk to you again.
