Small star coaster - pattern

Two different colors of cotton yarn
Crochet hook suitable for that yarn
Tapestry needle

Gauge is not important.
I used Phildar Coton 3 on 3mm hook, making the coaster 9cm (3.5inch)

Use color 1.
1. ch5, join with slst
2. ch1, 15hdc, join (=16st)
3. ch1, 1hdc, *ch1, 2hdc*, rpt**, join

Change to color 2.
4. In ch1-space of previous round: ch1, 2hdc, ch1, 3hdc, in following ch1-spaces: *3hdc, ch1, 3hdc*, rpt**, join
5. ch1, *in ch1 space of previous round: (3hdc, ch2, 3hdc), 1sc in space between the 2 hdc clusters of previous round*, rpt**, join and weave in ends

Use color 1.
1-2 as front piece
3. ch1, *1hdc, ch1*, rpt**, join
4. ch1, 1hdc in each st, join
5. ch2, 2dc in each st, join
6. ch2, *1dc, 2dc*, rpt**, join and weave in ends

Use color 2.
Join both pieces with good side facing up. (good side of back piece to wrong side of star)
Sc around, joining the point of the star on every 9th sc, join and weave in ends.

It is possible that the star is a smidge too small at first sight. It is easily corrected by ironing the coaster or by simply placing your hot teapot on it.

Hope you enjoyed making the coaster!

Please let me know if you have any problems following the pattern.

  1. I love your pattern! But I am working on the back part and by the time I get to the end, it looks way to big around, and is wavy. Do you have a chart for the back?
