Lately I’ve been spending my mornings on the back porch reading or crocheting a cover for my table. After a while I realized that all those Clones Lace pieces I had made as I worked my way through the book weren’t enough. I needed more pieces. Then I decided I needed coasters. We’re actually outside quit a bit; as our frequent sunburns and tans can attest to.
This is what I came up with to add to the table cloth.
I made one on the round and one spiral.
Spiral is on the left and rounds is on the right.
Copy Right Info: I own all rights to the pattern and it may not be altered and or sold in any way. You are free to use the products made from the pattern as you see fit.
Hook: 1.15 mm
Yarn: Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Thread, Size 10
Gauge: finished coaster is 4″
Pattern: To make it in a spiral omit the beginning chs and make your 1st st of the new row into the 1st of the last row
Row 1: Make a magic loop and sc 6, ss into 1st sc, ch 3 (beginning ch counts as 1st st throughout pattern)
Row 2: 2DC in every sc, ss into 2nd ch, ch 3 (12sts)
Row 3: 3DC in next st, ch 1, sk 1, repeat, ss into ch 3, ch 4 (6 clusters, 6chs) (remember your beginning chs count as 1st st when you start!)
Row 4: Tr in next two sts, 2 tr in same st, repeat, ss into 4th ch, ch 3 (42sts)
Row 5-6: Repeat rows 3-4 one time
Row 7-8: sc every st, ss into 2nd ch, ch 2 (112 sts)
Finish: bind off as normal.
Notes: If you find the coaster is looking like it’s making waves take out sts. If you find it’s bowling like a hat add sts. Pressing the coasters after making them will help to flatten them out. Whatever yarn you use make sure it’s absorbent.
They also look lovely framed and stuck to windows.
