Summer Stitch Along
Hello my friends! I have been working hard behind the scenes!! I am so excited to bring you another Free Crochet Pattern, from my ever expanding Sweet Stripes line!
I will be bringing you a NEW Sweet Stripes Pattern each week in June! The Sweet Stripes Coasters are the first of 4 designs!!
It was so much fun to design this Coaster Pattern! They double as really cute plant coasters too, which is my new favorite use for mine!! I hope y’all will find it useful and of course fun to make too! 🙂
I don’t know about y’all, but I absolutely can’t stand when my drink leaves a ring behind on the table, so I always have a coaster on hand! I *ahem* occasionally get a little excited with my coffee and having a spare coaster or 2 is so handy when you need one!! Anyone else, or is it just me that constantly spills my coffee? Is that a sign of too much or too little… I wonder?!? 😉
Not to mention, when you have a large family like mine, or let’s say *eventually* this pandemic will end and we get to do some entertaining again, it’s so nice to have a whole SET of coasters, right? 🙂 So with crochet Sweet Stripes Coasters to the rescue, we’ve got the table covered! WHEW!
Quick and Easy to make Coasters!
The Sweet Stripes Coasters are so quick to make! They take me less than 15 minutes to whip up each!! They make great gifts, I like to give them in sets of 4 or 6, wrapped in a pretty ribbon! Enhance your gift with a set of glasses or nice beverage! Thank your favorite Teacher, Mail Carrier, Grocer, or other Essential Worker with a handmade gift from the heart!! Don’t forget to make a set for yourself too!
Since they are such fast makes, the Sweet Stripes Coasters are fantastic items to sell at your markets and craft shows too! They are lightweight so shipping them is an easy option this year! It’s always good to stock lots of quick projects you can sell for a lower price point! Don’t crochet? Send me a message through my Contact Page or through my Etsy shop here! I would love to create a set of Sweet Stripes Coasters just for you!

Gauge is not very important for this pattern.
1. This pattern uses a Magic Circle. If you need help with this technique you can follow this link to view my video tutorial for the Magic Circle and post about Magic Circle Stitches.
2. Beginning chain does count as a stitch on dc rounds, but does not count on sc rounds throughout the pattern.
3. Sl st does not count as a stitch unless otherwise noted.
4. Repeat stitches between [ and ] the number of times indicated.
5. You may find that your work is cupping a bit on the dc rounds, but it should lay flat again once the coaster is completed. If not you can gently tug the stitches outward a little to help them lay flat.
6. This pattern is FREE, but has not been tested by anyone besides myself. Please feel free to share any comments or ask any questions you many have! I welcome your feedback!!
