Here it is! The cosy coaster crochet pattern! Below you will find all details required to make as many cosy coasters as you like. There is a written pattern as well as a pattern chart. Have fun and please share your creations!
Cotton yarn, fingering weight. I have used the following yarns:
- Ivory (A): Phildar Phil Coton 3 no. 0032 Ecru
- Yellow (B): byClaire Cotton no. 041 Ochre
- Brown (C): Scheepjes Catona no. 157 Root Beer
- Red (D): Phildar Phil Coton 3 no. 0064 Griotte
For the coaster pictured in the step-by-step tutorial the colours A, B and C are used.
Crochet hook 3,5 mm / E-4
A pair of scissors and a needle to darn in the yarn ends.
The coaster is worked in the round and the finished coaster has a circular shape.
At the widest point, the coaster has a diameter of 12 cm.
Gauge is not critical for this pattern. You can make them as small or large as you like. Just make sure that you use a hook that matches the weight of your yarn should you decide to use a different yarn.
For this pattern the following stitches are used:
Magic ring, chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet (UK: double crochet), double crochet (UK: treble crochet), 3-double crochet cluster (UK: 3-treble crochet cluster), treble crochet (UK: double treble crochet)
The written pattern and pattern chart (at the end of this page) use US stitch terms.
To attach a new colour when starting a new round, I have used either a standing single crochet or a standing double crochet. I prefer to join a new colour using this technique because it is much less visible in your finished crochet piece! There are very clear tutorials available on the web:
- Standing single crochet tutorial by Dedri from Look at what I made
- Standing double crochet tutorial by Tamara from Moogly
Of course, you can use your own preferred way to join a new colour!
All steps are illustrated by step-by-step photos. You will find a pattern chart at the end of this page.
