Crochet coasters and placemats have something about them. I have made so many of them and yet never seem to have got enough of them. I have made more than I really need at home but still go on making more. It, however, has one benefit for me. I have gifts ready on hand when I need them urgently.
There was this one ball of blue yarn that I had with me since a long time and could not make up my mind what to use it for. So when I could think of nothing else I was only left with the coasters. But this time it had to be my own pattern. I am pretty satisfied with the way it turned out.
The dark blue colour is perfect for coasters as stains will not be much of a problem. The material is so soft that the tables are going to love them.
Here I am sharing this very simple crochet pattern for teacup coasters that you can weave for yourself in one afternoon. And they make great gifts too!
Teacup Coasters Pattern
- Chain (ch)
- Slip stitch
- Double Crochet (dc)
The design comes from forming stitches in between two stitches of the previous row. In Round 3 we form a cluster of 2 double crochet stitches and in Round 4 we form a cluster of 3 double crochet stitches.
Round 1: Ch 4; slip stitch in first chain to form ring
Round 2: Chain 3 (counts as first dc), 11 dc in ring. Slip stitch to top of chain 3 to complete round (12 stitches)
Round 3: Slip stitch in between the first and second dc. Chain 3, dc in same space (this forms one 2dc cluster); 2 dc between second and third dc. Repeat around with 2 dc in between all spaces. Slip stitch to top of chain 3 to complete round (12 2dc clusters/24 dc stitches)
Round 4: Slip stitch in between the first and second 2dc cluster. Chain 3, 2 dc in same space (this forms a 3dc cluster); 3 dc between second and third 2dc cluster. Repeat around with 3 dc in between all 2dc cluster spaces. Slip stitch to top of chain 3 to complete round (12 dc clusters/36 dc stitches)
Round 5: Slip stitch to second dc of the first 3dc cluster of previous round. 3 dc in between the first and second 3dc cluster. Skip the next stitch. Slip stitch in second stitch of 3dc cluster. Repeat around. Slip stitch in to the stitch we had started the round with. Fasten off.
Thank you for stopping by. I have tried to explain the pattern to as clearly as possible. However, if you have any confusion please go reply to the post through the comments sections. Views and ideas are welcome too.
