Double Stranded Cotton Coasters – Free Crochet Pattern

6Shares

Check out these quick and eye catching crochet coasters! Crocheting with two strands of yarn can create fun designs and colour combinations. Go for bold pops with contrasting colours or subtle accents of the same colour in different shades. Working with double stranded yarn is great for stash busting and it’s fairly easy for simple projects like this one.

Notes:
– This pattern is written in US terms (find a stitch conversion chart here)
– These coasters are worked up by crocheting with 2 strands of worsted weight cotton yarn
– Working with double stranded yarn is fairly straightforward in simple projects like this one. Instead of making your stitches with one strand, you’ll using two. Crochet as your stitches as you normally would but be mindful to include the extra strand as your work
– Gauge is not important for this pattern
– The finished coaster measures approximately 4 inches in diameter
– Beginning CH 1 does not count as a stitch throughout
– You might find it helpful to place a stitch marker in the very first stitch of each round to mark where to join after completing the final stitch
– Extra photos and full text html links can be found at the end of the pattern
