Tunisian Crochet Coasters

Boo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Scared ya??? Yes... I'm still here... (^_^;)

I made a lot of these coasters with worsted weight cotton yarn over months in the past, and I just wanted to share them with you all:

Tunisian Crochet Coasters

I just used Tunisian Simple Stitches(TSS) and edged them around with Single Crochet Stitches(SC). TSS and worsted weight yarn create the thickness just right for coasters. I also like how variegated yarn look in TSS. (^_^)  Make sure to use a Tunisian crochet hook that is 1 or 2 size larger than suggested hook size for the yarn you are using to avoid excessive curling.

Chie- do you have place I can contact you about the skateboarding beanie that you made previously? I am just beginning and I seem to have more than 40 sts after round 6 is that supposed to happen. ?

Hi Shelly,

You should have 40 stitches on Rnd 5 and Rnd 6 is a *flat round. Rnd 1 - 5 are increase rounds, and you increase 8 sts on each of those round.
