How to crochet a modern cactus coaster featuring surface slip stitches and reverse single crochet edging. I worked up one coaster in just about an hour.
Finished Size: 4.13″ (4 1/8″) Wide at widest point by 3.75″ Tall
You’ll need a H8/5mm crochet hook, and 30 yards total per coaster of worsted weight cotton yarn. I used WeCrochet Dishie in White, Jalapeno and Kenai, but Lily Sugar n Cream is a good alternative. If you are only making a coaster that will house a cold or hot beverage, you can use acrylic as an alternative with an I9/5.5mm hook – just do not put anything fresh from the oven on the acrylic coaster, or you will melt the fibers and risk burning yourself.
