Pattern: Quick and Easy Crochet Circular Coaster

Today, I am going to share a pattern that I have been using for years.  It is a very basic pattern, and it is fairly easy.  The only skills you need to know is how to join a ring, slip stitch, and double crochet.  I use Worsted Weight dishcloth cotton yarn for my projects along with an H-Hook (5.00 mm).  I also tend to crochet tight with cotton, so you may need to adjust your hook size for your project to lay flat.  With all of that being said, let's get to the pattern.


Quick and Easy Crochet Circular Coaster Pattern

Materials:


H - Hook (5.00 mm)
Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn  (any worsted weight will work, but cotton will be the most absorbent when it comes to condensation.)


Project Notes:

*  The (Chain 2) at the beginning of every round counts as the first stitch.
*  The first crocheted stitch of each round is always done in the same stitch as the turning chain.


*  The last stitch(es) of every round are always done in the top of the last stitch of the previous row, the one hiding beneath the turning chain.




Pattern:

Tie a slip knot around your hook.  Chain 4 and slip stitch into the first chain to make a circle.  Chain 2.

Round 1:  Remember that your (Chain 2) will always count as your first stitch.  DC x 11 into the center of the ring.  Slip Stitch in the top of the Chain 2 to close round.  (12 stitches)

Round 2:  Chain 2.  DC in the stitch at the base of the Chain 2.  DC 2 times into the next stitch and in the remaining 10 stitches, including the very last stitch tucked under the Chain 2.  Slip stitch in the top of the Chain 2 to close round.  (24 stitches)

Round 3:  Chain 2.  DC in base of Chain 2. DC in next stitch. (2 DC, 1 DC) around, ending with a 1 DC in the stitch tucked under the Chain 2.  Slip Stitch in top of the Chain 2 to close round.  (36 stitches)

Round 4.  Chain 2.  DC in base of the Chain 2.  DC in each of the next two stitches.  (2 DC, 1 DC, 1 DC) around circle, ending with a second 1 DC in the last stitch tucked under the Chain 2.  Slip stitch to the top of the Chain 2 to close the round.  (48 stitches)

Fasten off and weave in ends.
