Have you tried a pattern with colorwork? One where you carry the color you aren’t using on the top of the row below as you crochet over it? Last fall, I knew I wanted to design a pattern with some complex colorwork (see the Buffalo Check Crochet Pillow Cover) but first I needed to practice!  I started with these Farmhouse Crochet Coasters.  (Plus, we needed coasters.)

These coasters are such a nice size. There is room for my mug and a healthy piece of chocolate. Coffee and chocolate on a cute crochet coaster – a lovely alliteration of some of my favorite things! Add a cat and a kid and there ya go.  (Sorry hubby, you don’t alliterate but you are still a favorite.)Quick farmhouse crochet coasters perfect for your farmhouse decor.

Let’s talk about that coaster with stripes.  Who doesn’t love stripes? When I finished the coaster, looking at it with admiration, I realized I could have done the stripes in rows instead of columns and saved a whole lot of time. BUT the whole point of these was to practice carrying the yarn and making smooth color changes, so it wasn’t time wasted.  Feel free to do 2 rows of each color if you don’t care for the practice.

I recommend using 100% cotton for the coasters. They wash well, I spill on them constantly, and they absorb drips and condensation. As you use the coasters, the stitches will settle into place and form a surprisingly smooth, flat surface.

Although two of the coasters have an extra stitch to keep the pattern symmetrical, they will still be relatively squareish and there isn’t a noticeable difference between the coasters with 17 stitches or 18 stitches.
