Spiderweb Coasters – Free Crochet Pattern

Usually I make big projects like blankets and other home deco items, but sometimes you want a small project that you can finish in one evening. With this set of coasters you have a nice eye-catcher on your coffee table and they are really quick to make. They are nice gifts to give and perfect for using up leftover cotton yarn.

Resources

Materials

To make a set of 4 coasters you will need the following:

Tip! make each coaster with a different Color B edge for a playful effect.

Scheepjes Catona is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/International), Black Sheep Wools (UK), Caro’s Atelier (EU/NL), and many other Scheepjes stockists.

Instruction video

I do not have an English language tutorial for these coasters, but I do have a tutorial in Dutch. If you turn off the sound, I am sure you will be able to follow along. You can find the Left Handed and Right Handed tutorials on my YouTube channel.
