Monthly Free Pattern: Sunshine Coasters

Updated: Feb 13

The “Sunshine Coasters” pattern is also available as a premium PDF download on Ravelry.

These cute 100% cotton Sunshine Coasters will be great addition to your Summer décor! They are perfect for Summer gatherings!

Make your Sunshine Coasters in traditional ‘sun’ colors or shake things up a bit and make them in other fun spring/summer colors!

These are quick & easy coasters to make and would make great housewarming or hostess gifts, as well market items!

Materials ➤ Yarn: 100% Cotton – # 4 / Worsted Weight (Such as Lily Sugar ‘n Cream.) ➤ Yardage: 20 – 25 yds per coaster ➤ Hooks: 5.0 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 ➤ DC = Double Crochet ➤ PICOT = Ch3, SS in 3rd ch from hook

Notes & Special Instructions ➤ 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. ➤ First DC Options: In this pattern, the 1st DC st in rows/rounds will always be noted as a regular DC.

There will be NO Chain instructions on rows/rounds beginning with a DC. **Use your preferred method for 1st DC stitch of these rows/rounds.** 1 – Chainless Beginning DC: This is the technique I prefer to use & this pattern is written using it. I use this same technique for 1st DC/FPDC/BPDC of rows/rounds. Moogly Video Tutorial for Chainless Beginning DC stitch 2 – Stacked SC: Stacking 2 SC will result in a similar look to a DC st without added bulk of a Ch2. Brianna K Video Tutorial for Stacked SC 3 – Ch2: This will get your sts to height of a DC & then place a regular DC in 1st st of row/round. ➤ I suggest using the invisible join for a seamless look when finishing off.
