Free Crochet Pattern for "Coasters in the Round"

One of my friends in Blogland asked me what pattern I use for the coasters I make. This was something I played around with until I figured it out. Here's what I do:

Coasters in the Round

  • I use an I hook but I crochet loosely. You may want to change hook size  or make additional rounds.
  • Yarn:  ww cotton

Round 1:

  • ch 2
  • work 5sc in first (this makes a circle)
  • put marker in this 5th sc and last sc of every round
  • do not turn on these rounds
Round 2:
  • 3 sc in each sc (total 15 sc this round)
Round 3:
  • *2 sc in first sc, sc in each of next 2 sc*
  • [repeat from *to* around (20 sc)]
Round 4:
  • *2 sc in first sc, sc in each of next 3 sc*
  • [repeat from *to* around (25 sc)]
Round 5:
  • *2 sc in first sc, sc in each of next 4 sc*
  • [repeat from *to* around (30 sc)]
Round 6:
  • *2 sc in first sc, sc in each of next 5 sc*
  • [repeat from *to* around (35 sc)]
Round 7:
  • *2 sc in first sc, sc in each of next 6 sc*
  • [repeat from *to* around (40 sc)]
Round 8:
  • *2 sc in first sc, sc in each of next 7 sc*
  • [repeat from *to* around (45 sc)]
  • sl st into next sc
  • turn
  • *Tr (triple/treble crochet) in 1st sc, then sl st in next*
  • (repeat from *to* around)
  • finish off

  2. Those are very pretty thanks for sharing the pattern :o) HUGS

  3. Thank you Sharon Marie! I think these would make terrific hostess gifts for the holidays.

  4. Yvw BGJ. I like them because they are "solid" and I think that is better than the lacy-looking ones in protecting the furniture. If you have any problems reading my amateur pattern :) let me know.
