Crochet coasters are quick and easy to make.They are great with using any kind of yarn.
They also make great gifts for friends, family and colleagues be it any occasion.Here, I am sharing a very simple flower coaster.
- 8 ply Acrylic Yarn
- 4mm Crochet Hook
Start with a magic circle.
Make 12 Double crochet in the circle.
Pull the short yarn end to close the circle and form a ring.Slip stitch to the first Double crochet.
This coaster requires working in a circle.
Check out tutorial on making a seamless crochet circle.
For the next round work 2 DC in each stitch.
Slip stitch to join.At end of this row you will have 24 stitches.
Next, work 1DC, 2DC in all the stitches around.You will have 36 stitches at end of this round.
For next round , work 1DC, 1DC, 2DC all round.You will have 48 stitches at the finish.
For the flower pattern, we will be making a shell stitch all around the coaster.
Start with Chain one and make a single crochet in the same stitch.
Skip One stitch and make 5 Double Crochet in the next stitch.
Skip the next stitch and make one single crochet in the next.
Repeat this pattern all around.
