Happy Gatherings Coaster – Crochet Pattern


Say hello to my latest design, the Happy Gatherings Coaster! Using a small amount of worsted weight cotton yarn, this pattern is a quick project with a cute criss-cross accent in the middle. You can make a set for your table or simply make one or two for other uses like placing under plant pots to protect table surfaces.

This pattern uses worsted weight cotton yarn. For my versions, I used WeCrochet Dishie which is a wonderfully soft and beautiful yarn to crochet with. If this yarn is new to you, please check out my review here: Dishie Yarn Review

– This pattern is written in US terms (find a stitch conversion chart here)
– This project is small and the same size as a typical gauge swatch. The finished project measures approximately 4×4 inches
– Turning chains 1 and 2 do not count as a stitch
– A trick for neater edges is to replace the turning CH 2 with a turning CH 1. This is simply preference and not at all required for the pattern
– A special stitch tutorial is included below. A stitch placement photo is on page 3
– You might find it beneficial to block your coaster after completion
– This pattern is a companion piece to the Happy Gatherings Table Runner

Materials Needed:
– Approx. 15 yards of worsted cotton yarn per coaster. I used WeCrochet Dishie
– 4mm hook (love my cute hook from my Dots set)
Yarn needle
Measuring tape

CH – Chain
SK – Skip stitch
SS – Slip Stitch
SC – Single Crochet
DC – Double Crochet

Special Stitch Tutorial:
Crossed Double Crochet Stitch –
For this pattern, skip two stitches and make one DC in the next stitch. Continue by placing 1 DC within the second skipped stitch. This will create an “X” effect/criss-cross appearance with the first DC in the back and the second DC in the front.

Begin with CH 19 and begin row 1 in the second CH from your hook.

Row 1:
Into the first stitch and each stitch across, place 1 SC. CH 2 and turn.

(18 SC stitches)

Rows 2-8:
Into each of the first 4 stitches, place 1 DC. *CH 1, SK two stitches and place 1 DC into the next stitch. Place 1 DC into the 2nd skipped stitch.* Repeat from * to * two more times. CH 1, SK 1 stitch. Place 1 DC into each of the next 4 stitches. CH 2 and turn for all rows except row 8. After completing row 8, please CH 1 instead.

(8 DC stitches, 3 Crossed DC segments, 4 CH 1 stitches = 18 stitches)

Row 9: (Crochet into the CH 1 stitch, not the CH 1 space from the previous row)
Into the first stitch and each stitch across, place 1 SC. Fasten off and weave in ends.

(18 SC stitches)
