Halloween crochet coasters title

Time to Make: 1 hour each approximately

Skill Level: Confident Beginner

You Will Need:

Abbreviations:

  • ch = chain
  • ss = slip stitch
  • sts = stitches
  • dc = double crochet
  • 2dcinc = 2 double crochet into next stitch
  • dc2tog = double crochet 2 sts together

Top Tip: Using a turning ch at the beginning of every row will cause an uneven edge and can be confusing whether it is a stitch or not. In this pattern, no turning chains have been used. The first stitch of every row is just a little looser than normal, you will be able to gauge how loose to do it and it will be obvious where the last stitch is to be positioned. Also as a failsafe, count your stitches regularly.
