Rope Coasters

Rope & Crochet Coaster Pattern by Vickie Howell

Rope Coasters Pattern

This week on Ask Me Monday, I show how to create circles using rope and crochet which can be used as a base of a basket or for our project,  Rope Coasters. In this tutorial, I show how to create the center ring to begin the circle, how to join the rope and crochet around it, how to crochet in a spiral, and how to create a sweet, bobble edging. Watch the tutorial, then follow the pattern below to make this week’s project!

DIRECTIONS (Make 2)

With yarn, ch 2.

Base:

Round 1: 6sc in 2nd ch from hook. Join round; place marker. — 6 sts

This is the only time you’ll join rnds. From here, you’ll work in a spiral, moving the marker up as you go, and using it as your guide. Please note, the marker will a space to the left every spiral round.

Spiral Round 2: Hold rope parallel to piece, leaving an inch or so overlapping. Insert hook into next stitch (counts as sc), YO over rope, sc over rope in next st, *2sc over rope in next st, sc over rope in next st; rep from * around spiral to marker. Do not join. Pull rope so it’s buried under stitches — 12 sts

Spiral Round 3: Continue around spiral as follows: *2sc over rope in next st, sc over rope in next 2 sts; rep from * around spiral to marker. Do not join. — 18 sts

Spiral Round 4: Continue around spiral as follows: *2sc over rope in next st, sc over rope in next 3 sts; rep from * around spiral to marker. Do not join. — 24 sts

Spiral Round 5: Continue around spiral as follows: *2sc over rope in next st, sc over rope in next 4 sts; rep from * around spiral to marker. Do not join. — 30 sts

Spiral Round 6: Continue around spiral as follows: *2sc over rope in next st, sc over rope in next 5 sts; rep from * around spiral to marker. Do not join. — 36 sts

Cut and bury rope.

Edging:

Using YARN ONLY, work edging round as follows:

Next Round: *[Sl st, ch 3, bobble, ch 1]  into next st, sc in next 2 sts; rep from * around. Join with a sl st.

    Decided to give this a shot, not complicated at all, but I am using some #6 Bulky yarn as I have no rope for practice. Not looking as pretty as yours. The “rope” is not showing through. Not sure if it’s the hook size (3) or the fact that is yarn. Maybe my tension is too tight.
