Handmade Crochet Gifts
This year, I am making a bunch of these coasters in Holiday colors to give to family and friends. Thank goodness that they work up quickly. One skein makes at least 5 coasters for me.
Add a DIY Pop of Color to your Home Decor
Using these Christmas coasters throughout the house adds a pretty pop of color. Use them on end tables, dining tables, coffee tables, and more. While this is made with Holiday colors in this pattern, just think what this would look like with springtime pastel colors at other times throughout the year.
I made these Holiday Crochet Coasters in Red and Green.
Learn How to Crochet a Round Coaster Without Showing the Seam Line
There is one simple trick that I use to hide where I start and stop a crochet row. Often when crocheting in the round, the seam is noticeable. In this crochet coaster, if you look at the close-up photos, it will be hard to find where the seam line is.
This is easy to achieve and for me, I believe that this makes these crochet coasters look so much more professional. However, the trick is something even a beginner at crochet can do.
If you follow the pattern directions, you will see that the SC does not count as a ST. However, that is key in making this look like there is no seam in each round.
Here are some close ups to help you see the pattern details.
