Seaside Coasters

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I just chose a block from one of my crochet books, and it turned into some nice-looking coasters with the addition of reverse-single-crochet (crab stitch) edging. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You don't always have to have a pattern. Let the yarn speak for itself, and use your books and patterns for inspiration. Then make something of your own design!

What you will need

  • Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn (color: Hippi)

Q&A with Debbie C.

Noraida asked:
Hi I really like the shape and the fact that it will work with variegated color yarn! Is this pattern available and where?
Debbie C. answered:
Thanks! I used a book called "Super Finishing Techniques for Crocheters", which has all kinds of edgings, trims, fastenings, construction techniques, and other useful information on crochet. The hexagon medallion instructions are in a section called "Crochet Basics". Figuring you may not want to buy the book, I found a similar set of instructions online at http://robotrish.com/post/395617972/how-to-crochet-a-hexagon-pattern, or you might even be able to find an instructional video on YouTube, who knows? Good luck!
Noraida asked:
Thank you so much! Will do!
Debbie C. answered:
When you make it, will you publish it on Craftsy? I'd love to see :)
