Crochet Christmas tree hotbed coaster set
Looking for a cute way to dress up your kitchen? Create this beautiful Christmas tree potholder and coaster set! Just follow the simple charts and you can whip up a set in one evening. This project uses 100% cotton yarn and size H crochet hook. The potholder measures 7″ X 7″. The coasters measure 4.5″ X 4.5″. Enjoy the free patterns!
- 100% medium worsted weight cotton yarn, 2 oz balls in green (I used Sugar N’ Cream “Emerald”), dark green and contrasting trim color (I used Sugar N’ Cream in “Mistletoe Sparkle”) and a small amount of yellow
- Size H, 5 mm crochet hook
- Blunt needle
- You will be working in the back loops only for the entire pattern.
- When changing colors, carry along the color not in use and crochet over it.
Front: Ch 24 sts and follow the chart:
Back (with lighter green yarn):
Row 1: Sc in second ch from the hk and each st across.
Rows 2-23: Sc in each st across.
Sc around the next 3 sides of the dishcloth with 2 sc in each corner. Sl st and fasten off. Weave in all ends. Repeat with back.
With right sides facing out, pick up a loop through both loops with multi color yarn (or whatever color contrasting yarn you choose) and ch 8 sts. Sl st in the first st you made and continue to sc through both loops around the potholder. When you get to the beginning sl st in the fist st of the ch 8 you made and sc 8 sts in the ch 8 space. Sl st in the first st you started your chain and fasten off. Weave in end.
Ch 14 sts and follow the chart:
Sc all around the coaster with 2 sc in each corner. When you get to the end switch to the multi color yarn (or whatever contrasting yarn you choose) and sc through booth loops in each st around. Sl st and fasten off. Weave in all ends.
Cut a long piece of yellow yarn and thread onto your blunt needle. Embroider a star on the top of the trees and fasten off.
You’re done! Great job!
