Crochet Pattern - Coasters

A quick birthday gift

The chaos of Easter break is over, the children have gone back to school and Lulu and I are slipping back into a routine (I have a love/hate relationship with routine!) I have a couple of crochet projects on the go at the moment and I'm also working on a few orders but last night I stopped it all to make a little birthday gift for a friend.  I wanted to crochet her something pretty for her house and I'd seen lots of gorgeous coaster sets online so I had a look at some patterns and set out to make a set...

...I found a sweet coaster pattern which is a re-working of a vintage pattern (1893). I did have to alter it slightly but not so much that it was worth re-writing.  I used the same cotton I had left over from my egg cosies, although I stuck to just three colours.  These were fairly straight forward and it only took an hour and a half last night to make six coasters, although I will admit to having half and eye on 'Silent Witness!'

I think they look really pretty - I hope she likes them.

I found this great card, 'We are not old, we are retro'...and everybody knows retro's cool, right?

Perfect for her favourite 'Cath' mugs (mmmm and mine it would seem!)

I have had so many enquiries for the patten for these little coasters. The link I posted is no longer working and after searching it appears the source has been removed. Since it is a pretty straight forward motif I have written my version for you below:

 

Quick Coaster Pattern:

Written in UK terms

Hook: 4.mm 

Yarn: any DK cotton

Rnd 1: Into Magic Ring 3ch (counts as 1tr) 19tr into ring, join with a sl st to top of beginning ch-3.(20tr)

Rnd 2: 3ch (counts as 1tr), 1tr in next st, 2ch, *1tr in each of next two sts, 2ch; repeat from * around, join with a sl st to top of beginning ch-3 (20tr)

Rnd 3: Sl st across into next ch-2 sp, 3ch (counts as 1tr), (1tr, 2ch, 2tr) in same sp, *(2tr, 2ch, 2tr) into next ch-2 sp; repeat from * around, join with a sl st to top of beginning ch-3. (40tr)

Rnd 4: Sl st across into next ch-2 sp, 3ch (counts as 1tr), 6tr in same sp, skip next 2tr, 1dc in sp before next 2tr, *7tr in next ch-2 sp, skip 2tr, 1dc in space; repeat from *around, join with a sl st to top of beginning ch-3. (you should have 10 petals made from 7tr clusters, each separated with 1dc)

 

Bye for now. Em xx

 

Edit 20/01/15* The link to the pattern for these coasters is no longer working. The origional article seems to have been removed. Apologies, I will keep looking. Em x

        You can substitute for the magic ring.

        Chain 4. Slip stitch to first chain to form ring.

        Continue with pattern from there.

    This was the first thing I've made by following a pattern rather than copying videos on YouTube and I'm pleased to say it was a complete success. A lovely simple pattern to follow and it makes such a beautiful item, thank you
