Crochet alert......

 Pattern for coasters

I used cotton
it makes them easy to wash
when you spill your drink on them!!!

make a magic ring
 5 ch
join to make a ring

ch 3
1dc in ring
ch 1
make 2dc cluster
(make a dc but don't finish it
make another dc
don't finish it
you'll have 3 loops on the hook
yo and pull through all 3 loops)
ch 1
and continue around
until you have
8 dc clusters

slip stitch into ch 1 space
ch 3 and make 2dc in same space
3dc in next space
and all spaces around

ch 3 and make a dc  in next dc and next dc
ch 2
make 1dc into each dc below
with a ch2 inbetween
slip stitch into the middle dc and
make ch3 and 1dc into the middle dc of row below
make 2dc in same place
ch 1 and make a sc in ch2 space
make 2c ch 2 2dc into next middle stitch
and continue around.
join at the end and fasten off.

and there you have it,
now make as many more as you need
and  keep your fine furniture
clean and dry....

Hi Marilyn

thank you for this lovely pattern! I also love your circle of friends directions! I am very busy at the moment but as soon as it gets a little more quiet around here, I'll definitely crochet a bunch of new coasters.
