    These are lovely coasters. I had actually made up some mini cotton coasters for cups and they were inspired by your coaster video tutorial 🙂

    I love this simple pattern however each time I’ve tried it my coaster come out ruffled. How can I get them to lie flat?

      Hi Kim You could try going up a hook size to see if that helps, but you may just need to block the coaster once it’s finished. You can do this by pinning it out into shape to help it lay flat

    I love your pattern! Question: I’m trying to make an even larger coaster. For each new row, should I continue doing 2 sets of trebles per open space below? This would be prior to the scalloped edge.

      Hi Theresa Thank you, I’m glad you like it The easiest way to make a larger coaster would be to use a larger hook and thicker yarn – you could even use two strands held together. I’m not sure how well it would work by just repeating the round you mention as this will more than likely make the coaster curl up.

    Hello! Is there a typo at round 4? “6tr in same ch-2 sp”, should it be NEXT space that’s NOT the ch-2? I watches your video tutorial and that seems to be what’s being done. ?

      Their is an amendment on my blog **Please note an error at 12:07 You should be slip stitching into the chain 2 space and making your 6 trebles into the next space

      (not as it says on the video which is 6 trebles into chain 2 space and slip stitch into next space) **

      I hope this helps 🙂

    i loved making your bella coco coasters. I would love to join them to make a scarf for my granddaughter. Do you have a pattern for joining or any suggestions
    Thanks

      Hi Barbara Thank you, I’m really glad you like them To join them into a scarf you could try squaring off the coasters by working around using stitches of different heights. You can see this technique used in my tutorial for the sunburst granny square here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCnpLIgSnMo&t=8s. Another option would be to use a series of chain stitches and slip stitches to join each coaster together. You could also take a look at the Willow Granny Square:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzsRXQrVBfE&t=1s which is a different pattern but has a similar look and is squared off so will be simpler to join

    Hi I love these coasters such a pretty pattern. I was just wondering if you have a pattern for a square that is in the above picture with the coasters. Its the pale purple one under the iPad. It is so pretty and I would like to give it ago. Thank you for your beautiful creations I am looking forward to trying out more patterns.

    This pattern seems to be the one in this months Crochet Now – I followed this but my clusters came out skewed, I think because it says to do 6tr in the same 2ch-sp as the slip stitch which proceeds it. The video on this page looks like it’s the correct approach but that means the pattern written above and in Crochet Now is incorrect? Could you confirm please? Have just spent the past 15 mins scratching my head trying to work out why my coaster wasn’t looking the same as the picture! Thanks in advance.

      Hi Jo, thanks for bringing this to my attention. For the coasters you should be slip stitching into the chain 2 space, and then making your six trebles into the NEXT space (as shown in the video tutorial). I will have the written pattern looked at asap to have this checked and amended. Sorry for any confusion this has caused!

    These coasters are so fun! Is there a way to make them waterproof or stiff? Would using starch on the finished product work? Curious what you would suggest. :-
