How to crochet a simple coaster

1

Start by making a magic ring. Place 1 3-puff sts into the middle of the ring, repeat 5 more times, sl st to join (6 puff clusters total).

How to Puff st:
Insert your hook into the st, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over place your hook back into the same st and yarn over pull up another loop. repeat 1 more time, you should have 6 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through all loops on your hook and close by with a ch 1.

2

Place 1 3-puff st into the 1st st from the start of the previous row, repeat into every st until you reach the end of the round, join with a sl st (12 puff clusters total).

Pro Tip

Count your puff clusters as you go to make sure you don't miss a st!

3

Place 1 3-puff st into the 1st st from the previous row, repeat into every st 'til you reach the end of the round, join with a sl st (24 puff clusters total).

Pro Tip

If you want to change color you can do so by pulling the new colored yarn through the loop on your hook and tie the 2 colors together. You can go around the ends as you crochet so you don't have to weave them in at the end.

Ch 1, sc into every st and ch, sl st at the end of the round to join. (48 total).
