Materials ➤ Yarn: 100% Cotton – #4 / Worsted Weight (Such as Lily Sugar ‘n Cream.) ➤ Yardage: 20 – 25 yds per coaster ➤ Hooks: 4.5 mm ➤ Stitch Markers ➤ Scissors ➤ Darning Needle




Stitches & Abbreviations US Terminology ➤ * * = Repeat stitch pattern between * * ➤ Ch# = Chain number of times specified ➤ St/Sts = Stitch/Stitches ➤ SS = Slip Stitch ➤ SC = Single Crochet ➤ HDC = Half Double Crochet ➤ DC = Double Crochet ➤ TR = Treble Crochet



Notes & Special Instructions ➤ Rachel Froud Art video tutorial on making a small pompom: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5bflSthBLU ➤ Chains at beginning of a round/row NEVER count as a stitch. ➤ Total number of stitches per round/row in (#) at end. ➤ I tend to crochet TIGHT, so you may need to adjust your hook size to accommodate. ➤ I prefer to use the Chainless Beginning DC at the beginning of DC rows/rounds. Therefore, there will be NO Chain instructions on those rows. The first stitch in these rows/rounds will be noted as a regular DC. Use the method you prefer for the 1st stitch of these rows/rounds. ➤ I suggest using the invisible join for a seamless look when finishing off. Heart Hook Home video tutorial for Invisible Join


Gauge: 13 DC x 7 Rows (Not Critical)

Finished Size: ~ 4.25” across center ~6.75” H (including ears)
