Crochet cluster coaster patternΒ 

So I had a lovely surprise on Sunday I found that I was featured on crochet concupiscence’s blog written by the wonderful kathryn, it really was a wonderful surprise and I’m feeling a little proud.

Anyhoo I’ve had quite a few people ask about the pattern for the coasters featured so as I made up the pattern, which I did write down. I thought it would be nice to share as it’s the season of giving….

 

So for these particular coasters I used style craft cotton dk in dove & white with 4.5mm hook, but you could use any cotton really with the appropriate hook. 

Pattern – uk terms 

Special stitches

 dtr (double treble) cluster –  *yarn over twice insert hook into stitch yarn over and pull through 2loops (leaving 3 loops on hook) yarn over and pull through 2 loops (leaving 2 loops) repeat from * again (leaving 3 loops on hook) repeat from *again (leaving 4 loops on hook) yarn over and pull through all 4 loops 

 dtr ( double treble) begining cluster – ch 4, *yarn over twice insert hook into stitch yarn over and pull through 2loops (leaving 3loops on hook) yarn over and pull through 2 loops (leaving 2 loops on hook) repeat from * again (leaving 3 loops on hook) yarn over and pull through all 3 loops 

 Tr (treble) cluster – yarn over insert hook into stitch yarn over and pull through 2loops (leaving 2 loops on hook) repeat from * again (leaving 3 loops on hook) repeat from *again (leaving 4 loops on hook) yarn over and pull through all 4 loops 

Tr (treble) begining cluster – ch 3, *yarn over insert hook into space yarn over and pull through 2loops (leaving 2 loops on hook) repeat from * again (leaving 3 loops on hook) yarn over and pull through all 3 loops

Pattern 

Start with a magic ring ch2, 12 tr stitches into the ring, pull the tail tight, sl st into 1st tr.

Round 1 – dtr beginning cluster, ch1, dtr cluster, ch 1 in each stitch in the round, sl st into top of first cluster.

Round 2 – tr beginning cluster into previous ch1 space from round 1, ch2, tr cluster in same space, tr cluster, ch2, tr cluster in the next ch1 from previous round, repeat till the end of the round, sl st into top of begining cluster. 

Round 3 – dc in ch2 from previous round, 5 tr inbetween pairs of cluster, dc in ch2 repeat till end of round, sl st into first dc. 

Faster off and sew in ends!
