Easter chicks - coasters - Free pattern. Great decoration for Your Easter table.
HAPPY EASTER everyone. I hope Your Easter will be filled with joy and warmth and happiness. I wish You well and am sending You so much good energy with this Free pattern for Easter coasters.
They are really fast to make, so don't worry and Let's get to work:
- yellow, white, black, orange yarn ( I use the yarn which gauge is 24.0 to 30.0 sts = 4 inches )
- hook 3 mm
- black felt sheet
- hot glue - to glue the ground to the pot.
Chick coaster base (Make 2 or more :)
start with white yarn
R1: 6 sc in MR (6)
R2: inc around (12)
R3: * sc, inc * X6 (18)
R4: * sc 2, inc * X6 (24) FO white
R5: BLO (back loops only) *ss 3, 2ssIn1 * around (30)
I know making 2 ss in 1 loop is not easy. But it's worth it I think, slip stiches in back loops will give as a very thin black line.
FO black yarn
change to yellow yarn
R6: BLO ss 9, 2ssIn1 (33)
R7: BLO ch 3, * 2DCIn1, dc 10 * X3 (36), ss in 3-rd chain You made at the beginning of this row.
R8: ch3, * dc 2, 2DcIn1 * X12 (48), ss in 3-rd chain
