FREE Crochet Plarn Round Coaster Pattern

Today I am sharing with you how I made a round coaster using plarn (yarn made from plastic store bags) and by crocheting using double crochet stitches.

To make this round coaster, you will need 2 grocery store plastic shopping bags and you will want to cut your strips into 3/4" wide sections. I used a size H crochet hook to make this coaster.

You will want to start off by chain stitching 6 stitches, slant stitch into first stitch to form a ring.

RND 1. Chain 3 and make 15 DC in the ring, join with a slant stitch to the top of the chain 3.

RND 2. Chain 3 (counts as first DC), DC in next 2 stitches, 2 DC in next stitch, DC in next 2 stitches, 2 DC in next stitch (repeat around) then in the last stitch, make 1 DC, slant stitch in the top of chain 3.

RND 3. Chain 3 (counts as first DC), 1 DC in each of the next 2 stitches, 2 DC in next stitch, repeat around and then end by adding 2 DC in the very last stitch. Slant Stitch into the top of the chain 3 stitch and fasten off. Weave in your ends.

You now have a round plarn coaster that will fit under your standard sized drinking glasses and coffee mugs. To clean: just rinse under tap water.
