Pattern: Ton Sur Ton Coasters



What to do with brown, tan and cream yarn? Not the average colour explosion as you would usually see in crochet projects! I thought it would be nice to use them up in a small project, a little house thing that doesn't need to be ooh' ed and aah 'ed to.

A few coasters! I barely had enough of the tan so these were perfect.

This pattern consists of a chart only and a few notes so it is quite different from my other patterns. Please let me know what you think of it! I made a tutorial about the Back Post Double Crochet to accompany this pattern, here it is!

This pattern consists of a crochet chart only. Here is what you should pay attention to: If you are making rounds in the same colour, slip stitch to a corner chain space and start the round in that chain space. If you are changing colours, attach new colour in a corner chain space. For the last round I only included symbols for a few stitches and the corner sequence. Along the sides you slip stitch in the back loop only and in the corner chain spaces you make a (sc, ch3, sc) group. Always slip stitch to the first stitch of a round to close off a round.

Finished measurement
