Patriotic Star Coasters

I've been needing to make some coasters to use in my craft room and in my bedroom. I bought new nightstands a few months ago, and I haven't been using a coaster when I put my cold bottles of sparkling water on my nightstand at night. Shame on me! So I was finally motivated by the #crochet365 challenge on Instagram to create a set of crochet coasters. Since the challenge for today was to create something with stars, I decided to make patriotic coasters with stars in the middle.

For this project, I used Lily Sugar'n Cream yarn in Country Red, Ecru, and Blue Jeans.

I used my size 3.0mm hook.

To make the star:
  • magic circle
  • 10 sc in magic circle, join
  • ch 4*
  • sc in 2nd ch from hook
  • hdc in next ch
  • dc in next ch
  • join to circle with sl st (see picture above)
  • *repeat from ch 4 around until you have a star
  • fasten off

To make the circle around the star:
  1. Join where indicated in the photo and chain 3. (You will be working in the back loops only!)
  2. Going up the left side, dc.
  3. In the next sp, hdc.
  4. In the next sp, sc.
  5. Continuing down the other side of the point, sc.
  6. Hdc in the next sp.
  7. Dd in the next sp.
  8. Tr in the next space, and repeat #2 - 8 around until you have a complete circle. Join & fasten off.

Here's a completed star in the circle. Next:
  • join with another color, ch 2 *(hdc in the next 3 sts., 2 hdc in the next st), repeat around and join. fasten off.
  • join with another color, ch 1 *(sc in the next 5 sts., 2sc in the next st.) repeat around and join. fasten off and weave ends.

A finished coaster is about 3.5 inches.
