Crocheted Doily Coaster

A simple little doily/coaster that adds a nice touch to your decor, a winter's cup of tea or to top a package.











This would make a sweet holiday hostess gift with a pretty mug and some tea.









Materials:

Size B Hook
Small amount of size 10 thread
starch for blocking




Chain 13, sc in 2nd chain from hook and next 10 chains, 4 sc in last chain, continue around down opposite side of chain with a sc in each chain to end, 4 sc in end, join at first sc.


Chain 3, dc in next stitch and each stitch to end, 4 dc in end, continue around with dc to end, 4 dc in end, dc to beginning chain 3, join in third chain.









Continue with last row for 6 rows, join in beginning chain.

*Chain 4, skip one dc, sc in next dc*, do this around and join with a slip stitch to base of beginning chain.


Piece will ruffle/cup but will straighten when starched.







Put in starch, gently squeeze out excess and pin to blocking board to dry.

  1. Oh how I love your doily. I crochet to. I've made lots of things crocheting through the years. I need to finish up an afghan I started for my daughter-in-law a year ago....shame on me.

    Have a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year.

  6. I had someone make something similar not long after we were first married. I am always amazed because knitting and crochet is something I have never learned.
