Circular Crochet Coaster Pattern

The classic coaster, round, easy to crochet and a perfect leftover yarn project. This Circular Crochet Coaster is revamped by surface slip stitches that will add a great looking but simple to do spiral pattern to the coaster.

The crocheting of Surface Slip Stitches is a simple technique and explained in detail after the instructions for the actual coaster.

This technique can be used for many crochet pieces to create beautiful patterns and accents on garments and Amigurumi.

The here depicted round coaster has a radius of 9 cm and is crocheted using the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn and a 3.0 mm crochet hook. Using a bigger yarn and/or crochet hook let you create a bigger coaster or potholder.

Crochet the Circular Coaster

The circular coaster is crocheted in the color Peacock in spiral rounds with single crochet stitches, half double crochet stitches and a slip stitch at the end. If you want to crochet a larger coaster, crochet until you have reached the desired size and then crochet the slip stitches.

Use the check boxes to mark your finished rounds, rows and steps.

  • Crochet the Circle Coaster in Peacock in spiral rounds.
  • Round 1: 1 sc and 8 half double crochet into the Magic Ring (9 stitches).
  • Round 2: From now on crochet only half double crochet stitches. [1 half double crochet increase] repeat till end of round (18 stitches).
  • Round 3: [1 half double crochet, 1 half double crochet increase] repeat till end of the round (27 stitches).
  • Round 4: [2 half double crochet, 1 half double crochet increase] repeat till end of the round (36 stitches).
  • Round 5: [3 half double crochet, 1 half double crochet increase] repeat till end of the round (45 stitches).
  • Round 6: [4 half double crochet, 1 half double crochet increase] repeat till end of the round (54 stitches).
  • Round 7: [5 half double crochet, 1 half double crochet increse] repeat till end of the round (63 stitches).
  • Round 8: If you want to crochet a larger coaster, skip this round and continue further down with round 9. Crochet only 1 sc and 1 slip stitch.
  • Finish: Cut the yarn and weave in the leftover yarn

Even without the crocheted surface slip stitches the coaster is already perfectly usable.

If you want to crochet larger coasters or potholder, simply continue crocheting the following rounds until you have reached your desired size.

  • Round 9: [6 half double crochet, 1 half double crochet increase] repeat till end of the round (72 stitches).
  • Round 10: [7 half double crochet, 1 half double crochet increase] repeat till end of the round (81 stitches).
  • Round 11: [8 half double crochet, 1 half double crochet increase] repeat till end of the round (90 stitches).

  • Round 13: [10 half double crochet, 1 half double crochet increase] repeat till end of the round (108 stitches).
  • Round 14: Crochet only 1 sc and 1 slip stitch.
  • Finish: Cut the yarn and weave in the leftover yarn

Crochet Surface Slip Stitches

Crocheting surface slip stitches is a relatively easy technique, with which you can upgrade almost all crochet pieces.

Before the actual technique is explained and you start crocheting, always remember the following two rules, so that the coaster does not deform during crocheting:

  • Always use the same crochet hook size for the surface slip stitches as was used for the actual crochet piece or a bigger one.
  • Do not crochet the surface slip stitches too tight, but “loosely” onto the crochet piece, because otherwise your work will warp.

Keep these two rules in mind from the beginning and you will have no problems with the final result of your work. Now let us beginn with the actual technique.

  • Step 1: Take the Gold yarn and pull it through the middle of the crochet piece. Fasten the yarn with a slip knot onto the crochet hook. Pull the yarn until the slip knot disappears through the hole. You have 1 loop on the crochet hook.

  • Step 2: Push the crochet hook through an adjacent stitch next to the middle. Yarn over and pull the just picked up thread through the pushed through stitch and the loop on your crochet hook. You have crocheted your first surface slip stitch. Make sure that the loop through which you pull the thread is long enough so that the surface slip stitch does not become too short and the crochet piece warps.

  • Step 3: This procedure is now continued with the next adjacent stitch and then counter-clockwise with all further stitches.

  • Step 4: You can either crochet the surface slip stitches just until you reach the outer ring (see picture) or continue crocheting into the outermost stitches from there.

  • Step 5: Finish your spiral by crocheting the last surface slip stitch into the stitch of the previous round in which a surface slip stitch was already crocheted. Then cut the thread, weave in and hide the remaining thread.

DONE!
