Small Β ~ Project ~ Sunday 🌺 Cute coasters πŸΊ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Welcome back! 

It’s a lazy Sunday πŸ€“ And this morning’s forecast was right…

‘Cause that’s what I’ve been doing! 😊 I’ve made some cute coasters, and I’ll show you how you can whip up some yourself in an afternoon. πŸ˜ƒ 


I’ve used a different type yarn for each one – I can’t see a difference. I used a crochet hook    Size H/5mm.

In case you’re interested:

Purple = Caron, 1 pound ; Yellow = Red Heart ; Green = Peaches and Creme 

I’ve made “Smoothies” and a “Beerglass”. The basic form is the same. 

Ch 18, and work 32 rows in the ‘Tunesian Stitch’ πŸ’₯ If you need a little reminder how to work that one …just click here for the how-to πŸ€“

The Beer – Glass 🍺

Connect your border yarn to the top right corner of your rectangle.  Ch 2, hdc across the top to the top left corner.  Ch1, slipstitch into the first stitch of the longer side. Slipstitch your way down, working into the top loop only. At the bottom left corner, ch 1, hdc into the first space. Hdc across. At the corner, hdc into last space, ch1, slipstitch into the same space. Ch 1. Continue with the slipstitch to the last loop (first stitch of the top row). Ch 2. Hdc in same space. 




If you’re doing the ‘Smoothie’ coaster – ch1. Hdc across, working the spaces between the dc, not the top loops. Fasten off. 

For the “Beerglass” you’ll now crochet ….

The “Foam” : 

Skip 3 stitches, *5dc – 1 ch – 5 dc in 4th stitch (shell)* . Skip 3 st, 1sc, Skip 3 st, repeat from * to *; Sc in last stitch.  Ch 1. Turn. 7 slipstitch on each dc of previous row. 5 treble crochet in sc of previous row. Skip 3dc, slipstitch in each following dc. End row with 1 slipstitch. 

The “Handle”: 
The handle is a continuation of the ‘foam’. 

Ch 20. Count 5 stitches from the bottom and connect with a slipstitch in the 6th. Work 1set of ‘Tunesian Stitch’. Slipstitch to the coaster-border. Fasten off, block. 

They do wanna curl a bit…so it’s best to get them wet, wet 😬 and block overnight – and don’t forget the ScotchGuard! 😝

What do you think? Will you be making some? I think they’ll be a cute surprise at the next cookout – maybe even a take-home gift?! 😎

I’m working on Part II of the ‘Crochet Along’ and try my best to present it to you tomorrow 😍 

Until then πŸ’•

    Thanks, Yolanda 😍 I picked the tunesian stitch ’cause it’s nice and firm…and I do love it too 😊 As long as the project is not too wide…I’m not a fan of the tunesian hook. That one hurts my wrist after a while. So for small projects I use an aluminum hook (no handle) and get to crochet painfree πŸ™‚

    So cute, unique and creative Tina!!! What a fun little project. I love tunisian and these coasters would be a fun little christmas gift for my son – of course I would need to make them all dark brown so they would look like Guinness! πŸ˜€
