Fruity crochet Apple coasters pattern   

I had an idea to make some apple coasters a long time ago, way way back when I made some apple tags, but I had completely forgotten about this until recently when I came across some green wool in my stash which was the same colour as these previous tags. I wasn’t going to wait any longer to get some made in case they got forgotten about again so I got cracking and put a pattern for some together. I opted to just make three coasters to start, a front and back and a middle piece, but you could add in more middle pieces too if you wanted a few more coasters in the set. I opted to use green but you could use red if you prefer.

Apple coasters pattern:

 

4 mm hook

Green or red Dk wool

Cream/white DK wool

Brown DK wool

 

For the front and back coaster:

Starting in green

Make a magic ring, ch1, 6sc into the ring.

Round 1: 2sc into each sc in the round

Round 2: 2sc into the next stitch, sc. Repeat around

Round 3: 2sc into the next stitch, 2sc. Repeat around

Round 4: 2sc into the next stitch, 3sc. Repeat around

Round 5: 2sc into the next stitch, 4sc. Repeat around

Round 6: sc around

Round 7: 2sc into the next stitch, 5sc. Repeat around

Round 8: sc sround

Round 9: slip stitch around into each sc

 

Fasten off

 

For the middle apple coasters:

 

Starting in cream/white

Make a magic ring, ch1, 6sc into the ring.

Round 1: 2sc into each sc in the round

Round 2: 2sc into the next stitch, sc. Repeat around

Round 3: 2sc into the next stitch, 2sc. Repeat around

Round 4: 2sc into the next stitch, 3sc. Repeat around

Round 5: 2sc into the next stitch, 4sc. Repeat around

Round 7: 2sc into the next stitch, 5sc. Repeat around

Round 8: sc sround

Stem:

Insert the hook at the top of the apple into a row down from the last row of the apple, ch 4, slip stitch into the 2nd chain from the hook and the remaining chain stitches, slip stitch at the base.

 

Leaf

Row 1: ch2, 2sc into second ch from the hook

Row 2: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) 2sc into same stitch, sc

Row 3: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc along row

Row 4: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc2tog, sc

Row 5: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc2tog

sc around the edge of the leaf.

Fasten off leaving a long thread to sew a line down the centre of the leaf and to attach to the stem.
