Here’s the crochet pattern for the cute little coasters that go with each of the social media potholders. Crochet a gift set for your IT director, social media marketing manager, or iPhone-crazed teenager. Paired with the matching hot pads, it’s a geeky win of a gift. Giggle, snort.
I apologize for the lack of instruction in tunisian crochet on this one. I’m going to have to get a tutorial together on this. But in the meantime, I recommend Stitch Diva Studio’s well explained directions on the basics of tunisian crochet.
Social Media Coaster Pattern
- Worsted weight yarn. I used Lily Sugar n’ Cream because I love its durable, cotton look. Colors: denim for Facebook, orange for RSS, turquoise for Twitter, and hot pink for Pinterest. White for border.
- Size 10 tunisian hook
- H crochet hook
- Yarn needle
With main color, ch 12, and draw a loop through each ch onto the tunisian hook (12 loops on hook)
Work tunisian simple stitch (tss) for 9 rows (you should have 9 rows of “squares”). Bind off.
Border: Join white to any corner, and make 2 sc in corner. Sc evenly around the coaster, making 2 sc in each corner. Join with sl st, finish off and weave in ends.
With single strand of white yarn, embroider words onto front of coaster:
- Facebook: like
- RSS: feed
- Twitter: tweet
- Pinterest: pin it
