Craft for home: jardain crochet coaster tutorial with guest rebecca of nook

Crochet  |  August 30th 2011  |  0 Comment

 i have been looking forward to being a part of versus for a long looooong time now. i’m so happy to be here, thanks so much for having me!

it is my honest opinion that a home can never have enough coasters, inside or out…. well… almost. meet jardain. these little cuties are so adorable, you’ll wanna be sure to make a set… or two… ! it’s enough to make your fav tea cup or mug or even mason jar of homemade smoothies exclaim “oh la la!” so quick, grab your hook and let’s get started!

this is a great project even for the very beginner crocheter. and they make perfect gifts from house warming to stocking stuffers.. (eeks! already??) to just because… they’re a fairly instant gratification project. i know what you’re thinking… “sa-weeeet”. yeah, i know.

so here’s what you’ll need:

4.0mm/US 6 hook
worsted weight yarn. … each coaster really really doesn’t take much, just use up some scraps for this little project.


with your crochet hook, loosely chain (ch) 4 stitches (st). then join with a slipped stitch (sl.st.) to the first ch to make a ring.

rnd 1: make 8 single crochet (sc) inside the ring. sl.st. in your first sc

rnd 2: ch.2. 2sc in the second ch. from hook and continue with 2sc in every stitch around. you have now doubled your stitch count to 16 sts. make a sl.st. in the first ch. of this round. … in this way, you are basically crocheting a spiral. see?

rnd 3: ch.2. sc in second ch. from hook and in every st. around. sl.st in first ch. of round.

rnd 4: ch.2. 2sc in second ch. from hook and continue with 2sc in every ch. around. sl st. in 1st ch. (36 sts.)

rnd 5: ch.2. sc in second ch. from hook and in every ch. around. sl.st in 1st ch. of round.

rnd 6: ch.2. sc in second ch. from hook, sc, 2sc in next ch, *(sc, sc, 2sc)* repeat from * to * around until last ch. sc. join with sl st. to 1st ch. of round. 46 st. total.

rnd 7: ch.4 sl st. in 5th ch. from hook. *(ch4, skip 4st, sl st. in 5th ch)* repeat from * to * around until 6st remain. ch 4, sl st. in 3rd st from hook, ch4, sl st. in last st. of rnd. you will have created 10 loops.

rnd 8: 6dc in 1st loop space created. sl st. in previous rnd’s sl. st. continue around in this manner. 6dc’s in every loop space, with a sl. st. in between.

draw a knot through final loop. sew in ends.
and you’re done!

see? easy peasy lemon squeezy. enjoy!
