It is November which, in my book, means that we can officially start talking Christmas crochet projects. Do you decorate for Christmas? We do some, but not over the top. According to some of my friends you can start decorating in September! However you decorate, and whenever, let’s spruce up the dining room table with these fast Christmas Ornament Coasters!
Christmas Ornament Coasters
These Christmas coasters are super fast and remarkably easy. If you are new to crochet, this is an excellent opportunity to learn a few different techniques that will really take you to a whole new level!
Super Bulky/size 6 yarn (less than 9 yards (8.23 m) per coaster)
Bulky/size 5 yarn – Gold for “topper”
(honestly, I just pulled scrap yarn from my Yarn Wall. You don’t need much!)
Crochet hook in size M/N – 9mm
Fasten off using the Invisible Join. This creates a seamless, knotless join that is beautiful to behold! 😉
Use the Standing Double Crochet to start ornament “topper”.
Round 1: Magic Circle. Ch-2, 10dc in circle. (10) Pull circle closed.
Round 2: Ch-2, 2dc in between each st from round 1. (20)
Round 3: Ch-1, crab stitch in 18 sts only, leaving two unworked as shown.
Fasten off using a version of the Invisible Join. Weave in ALL ends.
Adding ornament “topper”…
Using Standing Double Crochet (or attach with sl st, ch-2) dc in first open space. Dc again in same space. 2dc in next st, 2dc in next st. Fasten off and weave in ends.
That. Is. It!
Isn’t that the easiest, most fun little coaster pattern you ever did see? I hope you love this pattern, and you could even make them as regular coasters if you’re not big into holiday decorating. To do this, simply complete the crab stitch row all the way around and omit the ornament “topper”. Too easy!
I hope you love this pattern, and there are more where this came from!
