Sunny Sky Star Stitch Crochet Coaster

This rainy Sunday afternoon I got to sit on my new bed and crochet the afternoon away. It was blissful! My husband was doing some reading on the couch and my children were napping. It was just me, my hook, and yarn.  

I chose Sugar and Creme's Hot Blue color and contrasted with their Sunshine color.  The names of these colors just resonate summer to me. :-) Just like my Summer Breeze dishcloths, this coaster screams summer, sunshine, pool time, and clear skies. 

Once I took the yarn out, I started with the typical slip knot and made a quick chain. I was going to need a quick project, one that I could complete during that Sunday's nap time because *I just needed to crochet. Period.* Ever have those times?

Finally I decided to make something using the Star Stich (Punto Estrella). It creates creates such cute bumps that make this stitch look intrinsic when in reality,  it's really not complicated. :-) 

To make this coaster, I used the following materials:

Lily Sugar n Cream cotton yarn - or your choice of cotton yarn. 
Crochet hook H (Clover hooks are my favorite!)

Check: What do the abbreviations mean?


For this pattern, I changed colors every 4 rows. 

1) Crochet a chain of 25 stitches. 

2) On the second ch from the hook, pick up a loop and in each of the next 4 ch (6 loops on hook), yo and through all loops on hook, ch 1 (this forms the eye of the star), *pick up a loop in the eye of the last star, pick up a loop through the back of the last loop of previous star, pick up a loop through same ch as last loop of previous star, pick up a loop in each of next two chains.  At this point, you should 
have 6 loops on your hook. 

Okay, so now that you have the 6 loops, yo through all 6 loops, ch 1, repeat*. When you get to the last ch, finish with a hdc on the last stitch. 
Turn your work. 

3) Ch. 1, 1 sc in hdc (from previous row), 1 sc in eye of star st, 2 sc in star of each eye across. Finish this row with 1 sc on top of the turning chain.  
Turn your work. 

4) Ch 2, pick up a loop in the front part of the second chain from hook, then pick up a loop in the back part of the same ch, pick up a loop in each of the next 3 sc, yo through all 6 loops, ch 1. *pick up a loop in the eye in the of the last star, pick up a loop in each of the next 2 sc, yo through all 6 loops, ch 1, repeat. * Finish this row 1 hdc in last sc. 

Repeat rows 3 and 4 until coaster measures 5 inches approx. 

Hope you enjoy this pattern! What colors will you make your coaster? 

Have a wonderful day and find some time to crochet, it's good for the soul!

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
