I made a new friend last week – and she’s awesome! She sews! And crochets! And she loves to take pictures – just like me! I thought these people only existed on the internet, like all the wonderful crafters I’ve found through Instagram. But this one is a live one! Her name is Vanessa and she lives down the street from me. I feel like a kid again who has finally found a friend to play with!
She invited Logan and I over for dinner last week at her cute little house and I want to thank her for that. It’s terrible that it’s taken me a week to send a “thank you” gift, but handmade gifts take time, right? I hope she likes these little crocheted coasters I made for her. (I’m sharing this pattern with you below!) As a fellow crafter, I know she will fully appreciate handmade gifts and the sentiment that goes along with it.
Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 9 dc into ring, sl st into top of first dc.
Round 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc2tog in same st. *Ch 2, dc3tog in next st.* Repeat the * all around in each dc from Round 1. Sl st into top of beg ch 3. (9 groups of 3 dc’s total in this round)
Round 3: Sl st into ch-2 space from Round 2, Ch 5 (counts as first dc and 3 ch’s). Dc in same ch-2 sp, hdc in next st, dc in next st, ch 3. *Dc in next ch-2 sp, hdc in next st, dc in next st, ch 3.* Repeat the * all around. Sl st into third ch of first ch-5 at the beg of round.
Round 4: *sc, 5 dc, sc* Work the * into each ch-3 sp from Round 3 all around. Sl st to beg sc. Tie off and weave in ends. Done and enjoy!
