Posts Tagged ‘coasters’

Once upon a time I had some coasters that I crocheted for our table. I’m not exactly sure what happened to them, but I think I have an idea. They’ve been gone for quite some time now. How exactly does one lose coasters you might ask? Well you see,  Miss Emma went through a ‘throwing away’ phase. Which was a whole heck of a lot of fun as you can imagine. Thankfully that phase is now over and new coaster were made.

I kept it pretty simple when making them. The colors I went with are pretty boring and simple too. I don’t know why I always like to gravitate toward neutrals and browns when creating things for myself. I do appreciate bold, bright, pretty colors, but I guess I just feel safe using neutrals. (Weirdo, I know.)

I’m sure most crocheters can look at this coaster and pretty much figure it out for themselves. But for those of you that are just learning to crochet and are as I was, no matter how simple the task, a pattern was always helpful.

These work up super fast and you’ll be able to put them to use in no time. I made 8 in about an hour.

Materials:

:: 100% cotton worsted weight yarn (2 colors of your choice– perhaps something more colorful than mine!)

:: H hook

:: tapestry needle (for weaving in ends)

With first color, begin by chaining 4 and joining with a slst to beginning ch to form ring.

Round 1:  Ch 2, work 10 dc in ring. Join with slst.

Round 2: Ch 2, work 2 dc in each dc around . Join with slst (20)

Round 3: Ch 2, work *1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc* repeat around . Join with slst (30) Fasten off.

Round 4: Attach second color, Ch 2 and work *1 hdc in next 2 dc, 2 hdc in next dc* repeat around. Join with slst (40)

Round 5: Ch 1 and slst in each hdc around (40) Fasten off and weave in all ends.

And there you have it. Now go grab yourself an ice-cold sweet tea or beverage of choice and enjoy your new coasters!

I will be back later with my 366 post!
