Simple Stashbusting Coasters

 

coasters1

Hook: 5.00mm

Yarn: Odds and ends of aran weight yarn (I used some scraps of Organic Jacob Wool from Garthenor) – or you could also use 4ply or DK held together or use singly and simply work additional rounds until coaster-sized.

Note: The directions below use UK crochet terms. For US directions simply subsitiute tr (treble) with dc (double crochet).

Note on joining in yarns: To change colours neatly, work to end of the round but leave last stitch incomplete. Complete stitch with new yarn then slip stitch into starting chain. 

Directions

First Round: Make an adjustable ring, chain 3 then make 11 tr into the ring. Join in new colour. Slip stitch into top of starting chain (12 stitches).

Second Round: Chain 3, tr into same stitch, 2 tr into each stitch until end. Join in new colour. Slip stitch into third of three chains (24 stitches).

Third Round: Chain 3, tr into same stitch, tr into next stitch, *2 tr into next stitch, then 1 tr into next stitch. Repeat from * to end. Join with a slip stitch and fasten off (36 stitches). 

Weave in ends. 

Now the important bit, make yourself a cuppa, pop you mug on the coaster and admire your handiwork!
