Here’s the pattern for the Star Coaster that i taught during my workshop last Saturday.
*Chunky yarn (i used Value Ball Chunky Acrylic Plain from Spotlight)
*7mm crochet hook
*Darning needle (for weaving in the ends)
*Stitch marker (optional)
Note: The pattern is in US terms and worked in a spiral (i.e. do not join at the end of each round).
To begin, make a slip knot and ch2
Rnd 1: 5sc in second ch from the hook (5)
Rnd 2: inc in each st (10)
Rnd 3: [sc in next st, inc in next st] ×5 (15)
Rnd 4: [sl st in back loop only, ch4, sc in second ch from the hook, hdc in next ch, dc in last ch, skip 1sc in previous round, sl st in back loop only of next st] ×5 (this round will make the 5 arms of the star)
Rnd 5: sc all around, inc in the sts at the 5 points of the star.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Congratulations! You have made a star coaster!
