How to Surface Crochet the Coaster

The technique of Surface Crochet or Surface Slip Stitch is relatively easy and a great way to revamp all kinds of crochet projects. Before starting crocheting slip stitches onto the coaster you should keep the following two rules in mind, otherwise this technique could deform your work.

  1. Use always the same or a bigger crochet hook size as you used for crocheting the piece you want to crochet the surface slip stitches on. If you use a smaller hook size it is highly possibly that you will crochet the surface stitches more tight as the stitches you are crocheting the surface stitches on and your work will deform.
  2. Always crochet the surface slip stitches LOOSE, if you crochet the stitches tight the crochet piece will deform. You want to crochet the surface stitches at least so loose that the stitch is as long as the two stitches that are used to create one surface stitch, if it will be shorter, the crochet piece will deform.

Always keep those two rules in mind and you will not have any problems with your surface slip stitches and the final result.

Now take your second yarn that will be used to crochet the pattern on top your coaster. First pull the yarn through the middle (the Magic Ring) of your crochet piece. Do a simple slip knot with the pulled through yarn onto your crochet hook and pull the end of the thread and the slip knot again through the middle. Pull the middle tight (the Magic Ring), so tight that the slip knot cannot slip through the middle again.

You have now one loop onto your crochet hook. Decide where you start your surface pattern.

Stitch now into a stitch directly next to the middle where you want to start your surface pattern. Stitch into your chosen stitch, yarn over the thread on the backside of your coaster and pull it through. You have now 2 loops onto your crochet hook.

Now pull the second loop (the loop closer to the hook) through the first loop (the first loop created by the slip knot) and you have crocheted your first surface slip stitch. As you realize, a surface slip stitch is crocheted the same way as a normal slip stitch, by pulling a loop through another loop but instead in a row or a round it is crocheted onto the crochet piece. Always remember to crochet the surface slip stitches loose.

Now repeat this method for the next stitch to the left of your first surface slip stitch. Stitch again with your crochet hook through the next stitch, yarn over, pull it through and pull the new loop through the loop that was already on the hook. Second surface slip stitch is done. Now follow a spiraling pattern counterclockwise on top of you coaster.

Keep crocheting surface slip stitches till you reach the outer round of the coaster or continue crocheting the most outer round too, it is up to you. I continued to crochet the outer round too.

Finish the last round by crochet a last slip stitch into a stitch of the previous round. Cut the yarn generously weave it in and cut the leftover thread.

Done is your own triangular crochet coaster with a stitched on spiral pattern!
