Naming This Crochet Coaster

Sometimes, I struggle with naming a pattern. It is so fun to get the family involved. I usually turn to my daughter and her husband as they have creative minds. Here are their ideas they gave me.

Each Cluster of Stitches Looks Like Clouds.

My son-in-law saw the first one I made with the scraps of yarn, and he said it reminded him of clouds. Clouds are amazing things. They can be so big and fluffy, or dark and brooding. They can provide shade on a hot day or bring rain when it’s needed most. And now, with this crochet coaster pattern, you can bring a bit of cloud-ness into your home.

The Crochet Crosshatch Stitch.

Of course, my daughter said some of the coasters I made with this stitch reminded her of a flower, whereas others reminded her of crosshatch lines for sketching. Well, you are going to laugh, because I started searching for the term crosshatch crochet stitch and guess what? It looks like the stitches in this coaster. So, I guess this is a version of the crosshatch crochet stitch too.

Fun & Easy Scrap Yarn Coasters

If you are looking for ways to use up your yarn scraps, I have several crochet coasters to make throughout the year. Small crochet projects that work up in no time and are useful make great gifts too. I have the coaster patterns included in my home décor patterns.

Can I crochet coasters with acrylic yarn?

Cotton is best for coasters. Yet, I have used acrylic yarn scraps with success for coasters as well. Therefore, pretty much any yarn scraps would work as a pretty decorative barrier between a glass and surface.

Skill Level

This crochet pattern is great for an advanced beginner. You should be able to complete a treble crochet stitch.

Gauge

Since I used a variety of yarn scraps, the gauge was different for each coaster.

For the Caron Simply Soft yarn, the gauge is 13 stitches for every 4-inches.

For the number 4 weight cotton yarn, the gauge is 12 stitches for every 4-inches.

Size

Depending on the yarn scraps used, the size of the coaster ranged from 5 X 5-inches up to 6 X 6-inches

Materials

Caron Simply Soft in various colors approximately 50 yards total. The colors used for the multi-colored coasters is Chartreuse, White, Plum Wine, and Blackberry.

Cotton yarn such as Peaches and Crème approximately 50 yards total. I used colors Potpourri and Royal Blue to make the solid color coasters.

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked in the round as a square.

Start the pattern with a magic circle or a chain 4 and a slip stitch into the first chain stitch to make a loop. You can find a tutorial for the magic circle in the crochet tutorials.

Each chain 4 counts as a treble crochet.

This pattern can be used with a new color for each round, a solid yarn color, or a variegated yarn.
