Crochet Celtic Coasters Pattern

Crochet Celtic Coasters Pattern

Want to try a new technique without learning a new crochet stitch? How about learning how to weave strips of crochet together to create a unique Celtic-inspired pattern? The Celtic Coaster pattern utilizes two or more colors to create a woven tapestry that looks good as a coaster, placemat, or table runner.

Now, although the stitches are simple, it is noted on the pattern that this is not for a beginner. You will be crocheting rectangular strips which will be woven together and it can be a little bit challenging. Once you get the hang of it though the squares come together pretty easily. You may want to fiddle with the rectangular strips for a little bit, but if you’ve ever done the kids’ craft project where you weave two different colors of paper together to make a heart, you’ll have a basic understanding of how the coasters are made.

This is a great stashbuster project as it uses very little yarn, and you can use whichever yarn you want as long as you have a hook that will give you the correct gauge. You don’t want a very loose or very tight stitch. The coasters should measure about 3 1/2 inches when completed. You can experiment with different textured yarns, various color schemes, and mixing the two to create coasters that match your event, whether it’s Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, or Halloween. You can even add in other materials – t-shirt yarn, lace, or buttons. These are highly customizable coasters, able to dress up or down as you please.

If this looks like something you want to try, you can purchase the pattern from Rainbow Junkie on Ravelry. Or, if you’d prefer to learn how to make the coasters for free, there’s a great video tutorial on GuideCentral English’s YouTube channel. It also has subtitles if you prefer reading and viewing.

    DIY Birdhouse ... or Bird Trailer

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
