Crazy Coasters: The pattern

Hello sweeties,

How was your we?

Mine was pretty good…I’ve been trying something new in crochet…and I really enjoyed playing Sunday with my hook and some cotton yarn, using the pattern of “circle of joy” but changing its 4th round….and this is what I came up to:

cute colorful coasters:)

I enjoyed working the 2nd round with two different colors crocheting  two thread together…I just tried and it worked and it made me sooo happy ! And now I want to try again and again crocheting together two different kind of yarns with different colors of course :)

While the girls were playing around with their new Christmas toys I was playing with my yarns and hook, like a crazy woman fully concentrated on my coasters…

And when I finished the first one I was like wanting to make another one and after that one more etc :) Mad crocheter :)

You really should try this …It is amazing…I’ll show you with some pics and of course a graphic pattern;)

The first 3 rounds are the same as circle of joy. In the 4th round (in orange), you should have finally 11 small petals…

Let’s go… First, choose two different colors A and B (It is better if they are contrasting together)

Make the first round in color A crocheting 11 tr. and after that crochet the 22 tr of round2 with A and B together:

Try not to cut any end before finishing round 3 leaving the two colors together on the coaster (Is that a good English sentence? I am not so sure :))

and then round3: Make 44 tr using color B and finally crochet round 4 like in the graphic pic using color A again…

And you’ll have a Crazy Coaster: Fast, easy, simple and so cute …

You should really really really try crocheting two different thread together… It is a wonderful experience!

Be crazy and make a crazy coaster and of course let me know … It will make me crazy-happy :)

Have a crazy day!

    These are such cute coasters! They are very pretty crocheted with two strands of yarn. How do you make your stitch diagrams? Do you use a special software? I like having diagrams to look at for patterns. Yours are so nice. I hope you can share how you do them.

    Thank you for the pattern! Beautiful work!

  32. Laura says:

    I love the photos of all your projects, and the colors are so alive. You are so very talented.

  33. [...] Even een werkje tussendoor, gehaakte onderzetters. Ik had ze van hout en van plastic, maar daar krijg ik soms ook de kringen niet uit. Deze kunnen gewoon in de wasmachine als ze vuil zijn. Ik haakte er alvast 9 zodat ik een voorraadje heb. Erg leuk werkje om te doen. Ik haakte ze met Rio katoen en gebruikte dezelfde kleurtjes als die van de hieronder getoonde Banju kussens. Het patroontje vond ik hier. [...]

    I love these coasters!!!
    Thank you for this great tutorial.

  35. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours About me Widowed Twice and Still Alive!. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  36. darcee says:

  37. Miss JanRose says:

    I luv this pattern, but I am confused on how to get it started and what type of yarn to use. I am looking to use a variegated colored yarn. Thank you!

  38. Cecilia says:

    Your coasters are so colorful. I can’t wait to make these!!

  39. rachel says:
