Blueberry Starburst Coaster - free crochet pattern by DORIYUMI

This eco-friendly coaster was crocheted with Lily Sugar’n Cream yarn, which is a 100% USA cotton worsted weight yarn, but you may use any yarn you fancy. I chose cotton for its easy care, look and feel and I believe the cotton holds the shape of the coaster better. Bamboo is also a good choice! This coaster measures approx. 4 inches wide using a G hook. Simply increase the size of your hook if you prefer a bigger coaster!

SUPPLIES

NOTES

  • Coaster measures approx. 4 inches wide.
  • Changing colors: Pick up the new color and join by pulling up a loop in the stitch after the sl st join of the previous round.
  • Gauge is not essential – just keep your tension consistent throughout.

ABBREVIATIONS

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
2-dc cluster = 2-double crochet cluster stitch
3-dc cluster = 3-double crochet cluster stitch
sl st = slip stitch
st(s) = stitch(es)
rep = repeat
* – * = repeat instructions between asterisks as many times as directed

SPECIAL STITCHES

2-Double Crochet Cluster Stitch:

Step #1. Start with a dc st, but do not pull through the last 2 loops (you should have 2 loops remain on the hook).

Step #2. In the same st, rep step #1 with working a dc but pulling through only the first 2 loops (you should have 3 loops remain on the hook).

Step #3. Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on the hook.

3-Double Crochet Cluster Stitch:

Step #1. Start with a dc st, but do not pull through the last 2 loops (you should have 2 loops remain on the hook).

Step #2. In the same st, rep step #1 with working a dc but pulling through only the first 2 loops (you should have 3 loops remain on the hook).

Step #3. In the same st, rep step #1 again (you should have 4 loops remain on the hook).

Step #4. Lastly, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on the hook.

One cluster completed! In summary, you’re starting a cluster of 3 dc stitches in the same stitch, but not finishing any of them until the end.
