Tutorial: Crochet Coaster with Scallop Edge


Re-post from my Tumblr blog:


DIY Love: Crochet Coaster with Scallop Corners

This is the second crochet tutorial of my blog. I am still having fun with my colorful mercerized cotton yarn that I bought last month. After the butterflies earring project, I think I should create something that I can use around the house (so I can show off my creation to my guests..) . However, I have only 2 hours which is my son’s nap time.  This is what I came up with - a square crochet coaster with scallop corners. This time I still use the cantaloupe orange yarn similar to the one I used in Butterflies earrings project and I paired it with this cute lime green. I think I will call this combination a cantaloupe  combo. What do you think?
Below is the tutorial for this scallop corner coaster.  This is a great project for beginners to practice all the basic stitches.
Stitches used
  • single crochet
  • double crochet
  • triple crochet
Have fun crochet !!!!

Step 5: Now we are going to change the color of the yarn in order to make the edge in another color. Before finishing the last stitch of the last row, yarn over the second color and pull through the remaining 2 loops on hook.

Now it is time to start making the fun edge for this coaster. Turn the crochet piece and continue with step 6.
Step 6: Make 1 single crochet between the “V” (not inside the “v” as in step 3.2) alternate with 2 single crochet for all the way around the edge.

7.2 Make 2 single crochet into the space underneath the next 2 chains from the previous row ( all 5 stitches in the same space).  Repeat this pattern across this side until you reach the space underneath the last 2 chains from the previous row.
