~ little coasters ~


Here's a set of coasters that I'm taking to the campground.  I really don't know why since no one really uses coasters - but they look like they belong there. 

The pattern for these coasters is the first 4 rounds of the round ripple followed by 1 round of sc.  They measure 5 1/2" across - perfect for large glasses or mugs.

Here's the link for the round ripple pattern:

  4. They're so pretty. I love coasters and use them all the time. The pattern I use is very similar but I think I'll try doing a few your way.

  12. OMG... how can you make so neat and even stitches!!! Its just amazing! I wish I could make them same:)

    P.S. Could you share a secret of joining the rows in such an invisible way ;)?

    1. Thank you. I just try to keep the same tension as I crochet - and I do kind of crochet a little slow. When I am crocheting round items I always chain 2 at the beginning of the round to fill up the gap. (The chain 2 does not count as a stitch.) For example - the 1st round will be: ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook, join with a sl st to the 1st dc. I will only count the 12 dc, not the extra 2 chains. The 2nd round will be: ch 2, 2 dc in each dc around, join with a sl st to the 1st dc. I will end up with 24 dc. If you have any other questions, just let me know. :)
