Coasting along…

…at a leisurely pace, I have experimented and , I think, perfected the pattern for these coasters. I had not intended making coasters. Their conception was a happy accident. I had made the bottom circle for a water carrier, and added the furry bit. I decided to think about whether I liked it, and put it down for a while. My OH grabbed it and placed his mug on it. Hey presto, the fluff coaster was born, and I have to say, I do like them. I have my own now, and OH still retains ownership of the original.

So this time, I sat down, and through trial and error I put together the pattern. For those of you who would like to make some, I have copied it under the photo. If you do try it let me know and show piccies. I am thinking about adding some beading too…not to the fluffy ones, but designing one with beads instead of fur.



You will need aran weight yarn. I used Patons sorbet, and some cotton ribbon (sorry, brand unknown) and also some eyelash yarn. I used Royle – Touchy- Feely, but you could use any one of numerous makes, such as Sirdar Boa.


ch = chain

cs = chain stitch

dc =double crochet

Ok, here we go…apologies for bad writing up…

Chain 4, join to form ring with a ss

Into ring of 5 cs work 10 half dc
Row 1 Work 2half dc into each chain (20ch)
Row 2 Work (1half dc in next chain, 2half dc into next chain) 10 times (30chain)
Row 3 Work half dc into next 4 chains, 2half dc into next chain) (36chain)
Row 4 Work half dc into each chain
Change to contrast yarn
Row 5 work as row 4
Join last chain to next chain with ss and fasten off.

Have fun:)
