Good day to all lovely souls out there!
After the latest listing of my Mini Cube House Amigurumi Pattern, I decided to go back to coaster patterns. Actually I was planning to continue with an uncompleted pattern but after a few rounds of testing, a new coaster idea pops up (will be listing it in my Etsy shop pretty soon) and this has indirectly led me to having some ideas for simple and elegant coaster patterns.
I have been experimenting on different type of stitches like double crochet stitch (dc), half-double crochet stitch (hdc) and extended single crochet stitch to get different textures for the base of the coasters. If you are interested to know more, you can find them at them in my Etsy shop (with detailed instructions and photos).
In this post, I will be sharing a simple pattern using double crochet stitch as its base. I love mixing with yarns in my crocheting, so this in pattern, I am using three different yarn with colors inspired by Autumn. Hope you will enjoy crocheting it.
Time Taken: 20-30 min
Abbreviations (US Terminology)
AMR – Adjustable Magic Ring
BLO – Back Loops Only
Ch – Chain
dc – Double Crochet
dcinc – Increase [Crocheting 2 stitches into 1 stitch]
sc – Single Crochet
slst – Slip Stitch
y/o – Yarn Over
I am using the following yarns and crocheting using 2mm hook, the dimension is approximately 12cm x 12cm:
- Color 1: Milk Cotton Yarn (15-WPI)
- Color 2: Hemp Yarn (21-WPI)
- Color 3: Acrylic Yarn (17-WPI)
If you prefer a nicer color transition, I would suggest you to cut and weave in your tail at Round 3 and Round 4 instead of yarning over with the new color.
Picot stitch will be used in this pattern, if you are not sure what a picot stitch is, you can find instructions in the web or YouTube videos.
Using Color 1, form an AMR
Round 1: Ch-3 (use this as your first dc stitch), 11-dc, slip stitch into the top loop of Chain 3 (12)
Round 2: Ch-2, 12-dcinc, slip stitch into the first dc stitch (24)
Round 3: Ch-2, 24-dcinc, slip stitch into the first dc stitch and y/o with Color 2 (48)
Round 4 (BLO): Ch-2, (11-dc, dcinc) x 4, slip stitch into the first dc stitch and y/o with Color 3 (52)
Round 5: Ch-1, 52-slst, slip stitch back into the first slst (52) (Take note of the tension in this round, do not make it too tight or else your workpiece might curl up)
Step 1: (Ch-5, skip next 2 stitches, 1-slst into the back loop of next stitch) x 3
Step 2 (BLO): 3-sc, 1-slst
Step 3: Repeat Step 1-2 another 3 times
Step 1: (4-sc into the Chain 5 space, Ch-1, make a picot stitch, 4-sc back into the Chain 5 space) x 3
Step 2: 2-slst, (Ch-3, 2-slst back) x 3, slip stitch back into the same stitch
Step 3: Repeat Step 1-2 another 3 times, slip stitch back into the first stitch, cut and weave in tail
