Tumbler coasters add greatly to the attractiveness of a table. This pattern is a neat example of a coaster which is very simple to make.
This coaster measures 3 inches in diameter, and stands one inch high.
To stiffen, dip with sugar water made in the proportion of 1 spoonful of sugar to 2 spoonfuls of water and pull into shape over a form; a glass of anything the desired size will do.
1st Row – Make 6 sc in 1st ch.
2nd Row – Working round and round and using both loops at top of stitch, 1 sc in 1st stitch, * 2 sc in next stitch, 1 sc in next stitch. Repeat from * around row.
3rd Row – Make 2 sc in every 3rd stitch.
4th Row – Make 2 sc in every 4th stitch. Continue this way, making 1 sc more between widenings in each successive row until work is size desired for bottom of coaster.
5th Row – Ch 4, 1 dc in last sc, * skip 2 sc, make a group of (1dc, ch1, 1 dc) in next sc. Repeat from * around row, join in 3rd ch.
