Anyone love a good, quick project? Me for sure!
Sometimes I need a good project that I can do without having to concentrate too hard. These Farmhemian Coasters are just that!
The design for this project was inspired in part from The Plush Pineapple . I inadvertently made some circular coasters very similar to her Boho Coasters . When it was brought to my attention, Sarah was super nice and understanding. She made the suggestion that we work together and do a blog hop! So I modified the coasters to be square, and BOOM! Community over competition.
Love that unique trait in our crochet/knit community. I have found so many nice, kind people in the crochet/knit community who are willing to help each other out! Sarah did just that instead of getting upset. I truly appreciate how she handled the situation.
The name for these coasters was made because I am totally crushing over the Bohemian style, but I still love farmhouse, so I decided to smash the two together! Farm-hemian was made! Is it a word? Probably not, but it totally epitomizes my current style at the moment.
To make these coasters, you will need:
MATERIALS (WITH CLICKABLE LINKS)
US Crochet Terms Used
ch – Chain
st/sts – Stitch/Stitches
sl st – Slip Stitch
sc – Single Crochet
4”x4” not including the fringe
8 sc sts, 8 rows = 2”
BEFORE YOU START
Ch 1 does not count as a st
To unravel fringe, you can “comb” your needle through the strands rather than unraveling by hand
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc across, turn (16 sts)
Rows 2-13: ch 1, sc across, turn (16 sts)
If adding a stripe, switch colors
Rows 14-16: ch 1, sc across, turn (16 sts)
Change back to main color
Rows 17-18: ch 1, sc across, turn (16 sts)
Fasten off, weave in ends. Block project, so it lays flat.
Step 1: Cut 70, 3.5” strips
Step 2: Using your hook, attach fringe to each outer sc st on the bottom and top
Step 3: Attach fringe to the sides by putting one fringe in each row
Step 4: Attach fringe to each corner again at a diagonal. Corners should have three fringes.
Step 5: Trim fringe to desired length and comb needle through each fringe strand to unravel
And that’s it!
