If you are familiar with crocheting these will be super simple to make and for those that are not familiar I’ve photographed a few of the steps to help make reading the pattern easier. Enjoy!
1. 48 lb Hemp Cord
2. Size G/6 crochet hook (4.25mm)
Basic Granny Square Pattern:
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
sl st – slip stitch
*Chain 3 at start of each round equals 1 double crochet
Chain 4, join with sl st to first stitch to form a circle.
Round 1: *Chain 3, 2 dc in circle.* Repeat from * 3 more times. Chain 3 and sl st into top of chain 3 from beginning. Sl st through both dcs and into chain 3 space.
Round 2: Chain 3, 2 dc in chain 3 space. Chain 3, 3 dc in same chain 3 space. Chain 2 (I like my spaces tight but you can take it out to 3 if you want them more loose), 3dc in next chain 3 space, chain 3, 3 dc in same space* Continue from * 2 more times. Chain 2 and join with sl st to top of chain 3. Sl st through both dcs and into chain 3 space.
Round 3: Chain 3, 2 dc in corner chain 3 space, chain 3, 3 dc in same space. *Chain 2, 3 dc in chain 2 space, chain 2, 3 dc in corner chain 3 space, chain 3, 3 dc in same space.* Repeat from * 2 more times. Chain 2 and join with sl st to top of chain 3.
For coasters I only take the pattern out three rounds. you can continue in the same fashion if you want to make larger pieces.
Form a loop by crossing one end of your hemp over the other. Bring the longer end across the loop opening…
Complete your 3rd round in the same fashion. 3 double crochets will go in the newly created spaces between the corners and 6 double crochets (with chain 3 between them) will create your new corners. Tie off when completed and work in your ends.
