Sliced Pear Coaster Set
This is a crochet pattern to create 6 pear shaped coasters and a cute pear shaped holder to neatly store them in. This pattern is written using US terms and includes a chart to convert into UK terms. I have included photographs to help with instructions in the pattern, if you would like a printer friendly version of this pattern, please contact me.
I have used UK Chunky yarn for this pattern, you may use 2 strands of DK yarn together instead to achieve the same gauge. I have used a smaller hook than standard for this size yarn to create a tighter stitch, which will help prevent liquid seeping through the coasters when in use. Finished coasters should be approximately 10cm in diameter.
You will need cream yarn for the inner pear, a light green yarn for the outer pear, green yarn for the leaf, brown yarn for the stalk and pips. Less than a ball/skein of each colour is used.
