Candy Cane Inspired Crochet Coasters

Hi friends,

Today is my last Christmas in July post for this year. 🎄 I hope you have enjoyed the Christmas inspiration I shared with you this month – I have had so much fun! And I will be back with more holiday projects later this year. 🙂

I’m ending the month with a fun and simple crochet pattern for Candy Cane Inspired Coasters. They are stitched up using I Love This Cotton yarn with an H/5mm hook. The pattern is below and I’ve included a link to a free PDF if you’d like to print it.

Candy Cane Inspired Crochet Coasters

Worsted weight cotton yarn in Red and White (I used I Love This Cotton yarn)

H/5mm hook

Stitches used (US terms):

Chain – ch

Slip Stitch – ss

Single Crochet – sc

Half Double Crochet – hdc

Note: Chains at the beginning of each round do not count as stitches (except in round 6).

Make a magic ring with color Red. Ch 2.

Round 1: Work 12 hdc in ring. Join with ss to first hdc. Pull ring tight. (12 stitches)

Round 2: Ch 2. Work 2 hdc in same stitch as ss and each stitch around. Join with ss to first hdc. (24 stitches)

Change to White.

Round 3: Ch 2. Work 2 hdc in same stitch as ss, hdc in next 2 stitches. *2 hdc in next stitch, hdc in each of next 2 stitches* Repeat from * to * around. Join with ss to first hdc. (32 stitches)

Change to Red.

Round 4: Ch 2. Work 2 hdc in same stitch as ss, hdc in next 3 stitches. *2 hdc in next stitch, hdc in each of next 3 stitches* Repeat from * to * around. Join with ss to first hdc. Change to color B. (40 stitches)

Change to White.

Round 5: Ch 1. Work 2 sc in same stitch as ss. Sc in next 4 stitches. *2 sc in next stitch, 1 sc in each of next 4 stitches* Repeat from * to * around. Join with ss to first sc. (48 stitches)

Change to Red.

Round 6: Ch 2. (counts as first stitch) Work 2 hdc in same stitch as ss, ch 2. *Skip 2 stitches, 3 hdc in next stitch, ch 2* Repeat from * to * around. Join with ss to top of beginning ch 2. (16 hdc clusters and 16 ch 2 spaces).

Fasten off and weave in ends.

These will look so cute on your holiday table! They would also make a fun gift. Stitch up a set of 4 or 6 and add them to a basket with some cute mugs. Include some Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix, teas, or coffees – and don’t forget the candy canes! 😉

Happy Stitching!
