Guest Blogger Week 23 Mom With A Hook

I would like to say a huge welcome
to Sara

Thank you Susan for letting me guest post on your blog again. Last time I shared my tiny egg and pancake pattern and today I have a little coaster pattern to share. For more patterns just visit my crochet blog. 

A little about me - I'm Sara also known as Momwithahook, a mom of 2 boys and I started crocheting when pregnant with my last son. I enjoy crochet a lot - I blog about crochet, write articles about crochet and even wrote a wee eBook about crochet called Hooking for Cash. :) Enjoy.

Free Crochet Pattern: Picot Coaster

2 colors (yellow & cream) Caron 4-ply worsted weight
I - Hook
Tapestery Needle to sew in ends

Stitches Used: American Terms
ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
sc increase - 2 sc in same stitch

Picot - chain 3, sl st in 3rd chain from hook

Work in a spiral do not join
Start with a ch2, make 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.
2sc in each stitch around (12 sc)
1sc in first stitch, increase in next stitch (repeat this pattern around) (18 sc)
1sc in 2 stitches, increase in next stitch (repeat this pattern around) (24 sc)
1sc in 4 stitches, increase in next stitch (repeat this pattern around) (30 sc)
sl st to first sc made, end off and weave in ends

Join with a sl st to any stitch with cream yarn, ch 1
ch3, sl st in 3rd ch from hook (picot made), sc in next stitch
picot, sc in next stitch (repeat this all around the circle)
sl st to join in first stitch and end off, weave in ends

This can easily be made smaller for a magnet or made in different colors with a little button at the center for a flower applique - use it how ever you wish.
