Crochet Coaster Pattern - Wheat - Moara Crochet

Crochet Coaster Pattern| Free Crochet Pattern

My Wheat Crochet Coaster pattern is inspired by my favourite ceramic cup made by Rebecca Wililams, a talented ceramic designer in England. I love handmade ceramics, each cup of tea I drink feel so special as I hold a unique piece of pottery which I know has been handmade with love, care & skill. To compliment the design I have created a easy crochet coaster with a simple embroidery design, using a mix surface crochet & the classic lazy daisy embroidery stitch.

One of my aims as a crochet deisgner is to find ways in which we can reduce our waste & be ‘Crochet Conscious’ through making items for ourselves & our home. Try my other Crochet Conscious patterns HERE.

  • 30 meters of Ito Kinu Silk
  • 5 meters of fingering weight contrasting yarn
  • 3mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle

Gauge: 16 st x 8 rows per 10 x 10cm (dc stitch).

Size: Using a conbination of Circulo Charm (Terrcotta) & Ito Kinu Silk yarn (Paprika) with 3mm crochet hook = 8.5 x 8.5 cm square.

To add the buds of Wheat to your crochet coaster we will use the Lazy Daisy Embroidery Stitch.
