Calming Crochet Coasters

If you were to receive a gorgeous set of cotton yarn, what would you make? When we were initially thinking about what to make for December’s #12MonthsofDIY challenge (our last one!) with yarn we knew we wanted to work with cotton and the idea of crocheted loofah’s came to mind. But when Lion Brand Yarns sent us the beautiful skeins, in coastal-inspired colours we had picked, loofah just didn’t seem to cut it.

Instead, I got out my crochet hook and made a coaster pattern! OK, although crochet coasters don’t seem any more glamorous than a loofah, these crochet rounds are a fantastic starting point for all kinds of projects including throw pillows, afghans and more. Stay tuned and we’ll be sharing some of these ideas in the coming months.

Have y'all created any patterns that expand on this pattern, like mentioned in the post? I didn't have any luck finding anything when I searched your site.

Also, any suggestions how to make this a little bigger...for those jumbo/over-sized coffee mugs? What could I add for another round or two?

Thank you so much!! đź’“

Hi Annie. You're right! I actually never got around to sharing another project. Thank you for reminding me. I'll take a look tomorrow and see how another couple rounds would work. Jane

Cute coaster! Would love to see pattern for the little storage basket (to hold a several coasters) pictured with it. Where can I get that, please?

Hi Jeanne, thank you for the comment. Hmmm, I'm not sure which basket you're referring to, I looked over the post and I don't see an image of it.
