Festive Coaster Series: 1 - Stag


Christmas is a busy time of year, so these little coaster projects are a perfect way to relax in between bigger projects that all crocheters find themselves busy with when its coming up to gifting time.


There will be 4 designs in this series released on the run up to Christmas so keep a look out for the release of each design and make sure you enjoy a 'time out' with these simple and relaxing designs. You may even want to gift a few to family and friends.


I've chosen a beautiful icy green for my designs along with a sparkly gray yarn which you can find below:



Each coaster is worked in Tapestry Crochet with a Moss Stitch border to finish. If Tapestry Crochet is new to you, don't forget to check out my handy tips and tricks post which you can find here.



You'll need:


3.5mm/E-4 Crochet Hook

2 colours of Light Worsted/DK yarn

Tapestry needle for sewing in ends


For this pattern, you'll need to carry the colour not in use and change colour on the last yarn over of the previous stitch. When all stitches of a colour have been worked for that row, drop that colour yarn; there's no need to carry it to the end of the row.


Beginning '1 ch' does not count as a stitch.


Abbreviations:

ch - chain

st - stitch

sc - single crochet

RS - right side

WS - wrong side

MC - green

CC - gray

Rep - repeat
