Create Your Own Colourful Crochet Coasters
As soon as Autumn hits, we think it’s only right that we draw your crafty attention to all things soft and snug – but soft and snug needn’t just be reserved for fashion and blankets! If you fancy yourself handy with a crochet hook (or even if you’re a newbie to crochet!) then you’ll just love these gorgeous crochet coasters! And the good news? Not only are they a gorgeous way to add a little comfort and vibrancy to your home decor this autumn, but they’re pretty straightforward to make, too!
To make your own set of colourful crochet coasters, you’ll need a 5mm crochet hook, worsted weight yarn in cream, yellow, orange, blue and green (or perhaps another collection of colours of your choice!), and scissors to snip the threads. It’s as simple as that!
To make coasters, you’ll need to work in rounds. This means that you stitch around in a spiral, instead of in rows, rotating as you go. Here’s a simple crochet pattern that describes which stitch patterns you’ll need to perform.
Begin stitching in orange, yellow, blue or green yarn. Create an adjustable loop.
Rnd 1: Ch 4, 10 dc in first ch and sl st into top of first dc (10 sts)
Rnd 2: Ch 3, 2 dc in each around (20 sts)
Rnd 3: Ch 3, *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next, rep (30 sts)
Rnd 4: Ch 1, 2 sc in st, 1 sc in next 2 sts, rep (40 sts)
Rnd 5: Ch 3, 2 sc in st, 1 sc in next 3 st, rep (50 sts)
Fasten off the yarn again and tidy up the ends (sewing if necessary).
