Never knew making coasters was that hard.

Updated: Feb 23, 2020

In October I crocheted a few small bottoms, to show that there is not much difference in size when you increase 8, 10 or 12 times.

After a while I put my cup of tea on those bottoms, so they have been promoted from YouTube examples to coasters.

A few weeks later I thought it would be nice to make some Christmas coasters too and I started to design a Christmas tree coaster.

It took a few tries before it really looked like a Christmas tree. Making a straight Christmas tree on a round coaster was a challenge.

Then I tried a Christmas bell, unfortunately it did not look good. No matter how often I changed my design, it looked more like an ugly Christmas tree than a beautiful Christmas bell. So that one didn’t make it into a pattern. 

The next try was a Christmas star. The design was a little challenging, but crocheting it went smooth. A Christmas star has 5 points, that is why I made the Christmas star coaster with 10 increases.

The last one was the Christmas angel. Making the pattern was easy, crocheting it was a pain in the ass (sorry Angel). But in the end I am very happy with my lovely angel and I will make more of them for personal use. I think that one is fabulous.

These look so nice. Another great way to use the Mochila technique, and a nice small project for people to use up their left over yarn.
