Flies are home everywhere on the world but are counted to the more bothersome insects in our animal kingdom. Even though i am a animal friend, i prefer my flies flat and motionless in front of me instead of on my food or in my drink … or even better, under my drink.

This Amigurumi Fly Coaster is not buzzing around but serves a real purpose and keeps every surface dry from your cold drinks, no matter how cold your drink. If you do not like sewing you will love this pattern, everything is crocheted together except the fly eyes. Minimum sewing effort, more fun.

The depicted crochet coaster was crocheted using the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn and a 2.5 mm crochet hook and has a diameter of 9.5 cm (3.74 inch).

Finishing the Amigurumi Fly Coaster

As you can see you did not fully finished the last round around of the fly body to the beginning of the round. The last missing stitches are now used to crochet on the fly head and the wings.

Start by pushing your crochet hook through the next stitch on the body AND through the top of the most right stitch on the head on the row of stitches you crocheted to close the head. Use the pictures as help to where and how to stitch through.

After you pushed your crochet hook through both stitches, yarn over and pull the thread through both stitches and crochet 1 slip stitch. That is the first stitch connecting the head to the body.

Next you crochet the first wing to the body and head. The beginning of the wing consists of 3 stitches that must be positioned as shown in the pictures to crochet them correctly together.

Stitch again with your crochet hook through the next stitch on the body, then through the most right stitch on the wing (take care to position the wing correctly) and at last again through the top through the next stitch on the head.

You should pierce now through 3 stitches, first on the body, second through the wing and third through the head. Yarn over, pull the thread through all 3 stitches and crochet 1 slip stitch.

Repeat this for the next stitch on the wing (again first through the body, then the wing and finally through the head) …

Assemble Crochet Fly Step 14

… and finally through the 3rd stitch on the wing (again, first body, second wing, third head).

Assemble Crochet Fly Step 15

The first wing is now bombproof attached to the body and head.

Assemble Crochet Fly Step 16

Stitch your crochet hook again through the next stitch on the body and then through the next stitch on the head, yarn over, pull the thread through both stitches and crochet 1 slip stitch.

Assemble Crochet Fly Step 17

Now you attach the second wing. Position the wing again accordingly to the pictures. Proceed same as you did with the first wing. Stitch through the next stitch on the body, then through the first stitch on the wing and finally through the next stitch on the head. You have 3 loops on your crochet hook, yarn over and pull the thread through all 3 loops and crochet 1 slip stitch.

This is repeated for the next stitch …

Assemble Crochet Fly Step 21

… and the next stitch.

Assemble Crochet Fly Step 22

Both wings are now connected to the body without even touching the tapestry needle. Finally stitch again through the next stitch on the body and the last stitch on the head, yarn over, pull the thread through both stitches and crochet 1 slip stitch.

Crochet 7 single crochet stitches along the body and finish the round on the body with 1 slip stitch. Cut the yarn and weave it in.

Häkeln Sie zum Abschluss 7 feste Masche am Ring und beenden die Arbeit mit einer Kettmasche. Schneiden Sie den Faden ab und vernähen diesen. Der Fliegen Untersetzer ist fast fertig.

At last some sewing. Sew the eyes onto the head of the fly and your coaster is done.

Well done! Your almost sewing-free Amigurumi Fly Coaster is finished and ready to use!
