Animal Coasters


To read my thoughts on coasters you can go to the post called Coasting Along the Coaster and Coasting Along.


One thing I really enjoy crocheting is coasters. I also really like crocheting from charts. So lets combine the two and make some coasters from charts.

These ones all have an animal theme.


The Base Pattern


Difficulty and Terminology:


This is an easy pattern and uses US terminology.




What You Will Need:


1 ball 4 Seasons Flinders 8ply Cotton in hot pink


1 ball 4 Seasons Flinders 8ply Cotton in olive green


3.25 mm hook


Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Tension:

20 sts/14 rows = 10cm/4 inches square in esc




Sizing:


The finished coaster is 11cm wide and 9.5 cm long.




Abbreviations:


ch - chain


esc - extended single crochet


To do the Extended Single Crochet:

* Start to row with one turning chain;

* Insert your hook into the first stitch;

* Yarn over and pull up a loop. Now you will have two loops on your hook;

* Yarn over and pull through only the first loop only on the hook. Now you will still have * two loops on your hook;

* Yarn over and pull through both loops remaining on the hook;

* Repeat, by inserting your hook into the next stitch.

The Coaster:
Decide which colour is represented by the white block and which colour is represented by the black block. In this pattern the maroon is used for the black blocks and olive green for the white blocks.


Since you are working with more than one colour you will need to carry the colour that is not being worked across the piece as you work.  This is done by crocheting over the yarn that is currently not in use.  When a colour change is needed this is done in the usual manner, that is in the last yarn through of the extended single crochet stitch.
At the end of each row use both colours for the last yarn over and pull through two loops of the esc.

To begin
:

Ch 23 in hot pink, and the first stitch is worked in the second chain from the hook. Making 22 esc;


Then follow the chart, reading from left to right, then right to left, etc




Finishing:


Fasten off and weave in ends.
