Hello dear pals!
As an early Christmas present, from me to you, I have decided to share my current crochet idea! It is a cute, stash-busting, great last minuet gift, fits in an envelope type of thing! In short, it is a Christmas Bauble Coaster :)
Size: about 4"
Yarn: Small amount, in colours of your choice. ( 4-5 mtrs of each colour should suffice) If you do not have any silver, to make the end fitment, use any colour you like! Just have FUN :)
Notions: stitch markers
Dc: double crochet
Sc: single crochet
Sl st: Slip stitch
Bauble ( this is worked in rounds, that are joined. The Ch 3 at the start of each rnd counts as a stitch)
Rnd 1 : Ch 4, 13 dc in 4th ch from hk. Do not turn. Join with sl st, in top of ch 4 (14 dc)
Rnd 2: If you are using more than one colour, break off yarn. In the Sl st, join the new colour, with a sl st. Ch 3, dc in same place, 2 dc in each st, around, Join with sl st, in top of ch 3. Do not turn. (28 dc)
Rnd 3: If using more than one colour, break off yarn. Join next colour in sl st of last rnd, with sl st. Ch 3. Dc in same place, 1 dc in next st. **(2dc in next st, 1 dc in next st)** repeat till end. Ending dc in last st. (42 dc)
With silver yarn/colour of your choice, attach yarn with sl st, in last st of last rnd. sc in next 3 sts. Ch 1, turn. Sc in each st across. Ch 8 attach with sl st in first st of this row, to make a loop. Fasten off. Darn in ends, and prepare to fall in love with your wee bauble coaster :)
