Black Cat Coasters Set | Crochet Tutorial

Written by Kate Curry

Who else is a black cat lover? These cute little harbingers of ‘bad luck’ are often unloved and make people nervous. Those people are nerds and might be missing out on their perfect pet! For those that love these little black bundles of cuddles - I have the perfect coaster project for you! One cake can make up to 5 coasters! 


1 cake of Silk Roving Worsted Weight Yarn - Black
5.5mm crochet hook
Stitch marker (optional - I like to use them to keep track of my rounds)


MR: Magic ring
CH(s): Chain(s) 
ST(S): Stitch(es)
DC: Double crochet 
SLST: Slip stitch 
INC: Increase
ESC: Extended single crochet
TC: Triple crochet
Against a tan rug, black cat coasters are knotted together with a strand of orange thread. To the right of the coasters is a pair of green and silver scissors.

Round 1: CH 1 and into the MR, create 12 DC. SLST to the first CH (12)
