Crochet Fruit Coasters Pattern

With the nice weather we are having, I was suddenly inspired to make fruit coasters. I love the way they turned out and I think they would be a fabulous hostess gift and a lot of fun to have out for your spring or summer get togethers!

Materials:
– Worsted weight yarn. I used Vanna’s Choice in Scarlet (red), Mustard (yellow), Fern (green), Terracotta (orange), White, and Chocolate (brown). You can find and purchase these at www.lionbrand.com. The pink in the watermelon is Red Heart with Love Bubble Gum.
– Size H Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle

Chain 5, SC down chain, chain 5 again, SC down chain, chain 5 again, SC down chain and across the top of the first two leaves. Fasten off leaving long tail to sew onto top of the strawberry.
Finish by weaving or tying black yarn on in random spots to make the strawberry seeds.

Orange/Lemon/Lime Coaster Pattern:
Starting with white yarn…
Magic Ring, chain 1, make 12 SC inside magic ring, join to first SC, change color to the main fruit color, chain 2 (12 SC)
Round 2: 2 DC in each stitch around, join, chain 2 (24 DC)

Round 3: 2 DC in first stitch, DC in next stitch, repeat around, join, change color back to white, chain 1 (36 DC)

Round 5: SC in each stitch around, join to first SC, fasten off and weave in ends. (48 SC)
To make the fruit sections you will want to surface slip stitch with white yarn. HERE is great tutorial on how to surface slip stitch. I did not make one continues surface slip stitch. I started and stopped 6 times to create each section line. You will want to make surface slip stitch lines shooting out from every other stitch in round 1 for a total of 6 surface slip stitch lines. Sorry, there are a lot of ends to weave in, but I found this way to look the best once complete.

Row 6: SC across (6 SC)
Row 7: SC decrease, SC in next 2, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Row 8: Make 2 SC decreases, chain 1, 
Change color to green and continue to SC around edge of entire piece, join to first SC, fasten off and weave in ends.
Finish by making the a stem and two seeds as described above in the Apple Coaster Pattern.

    I've made the apple, strawberry and watermelon so far (college kid with too much time…) An there is a little mistake in the strawberry pattern. When it says, "SC in each stitch until you get to the last 5 stitches", it should say 6 stitches because there are 12 stitches to do after, 2 in each (2 HDC, 2 HDC, 2 DC, 2 HDC, 2 HDC, 2 SC)
    Thanks for the great patterns :)

      Oh no! Thanks for catching that. This is what happens when I write down the pattern after I have finished instead of writing it as I go :) So I counted my stitches again and it looks like I actually added in and extra "2 HDC". I updated the pattern but I am sure it will work if you leave 6 stitches and do it the way I originally had it written :)

    Oh my gosh Sarah!! This is too adorably cute! I'm not a crotcheter or a blogger, just a regular kid. So I don't really know how to do this. Do you sell these cuties on your Etsy shop? If so, please let me know. Thank you! :)

    I had a blast making these! When I figure out how to post a picture to your blog I would love to share. On the citrus fruit for the surface slip at the end of each section I pulled a single strand of yarn all the way through (left it about 1.5 ft long, weaves over on the backside to where the next one should be and continued. That way I only have two ends to weave in. Lived these patterns! Thank you so much!!!
