I think its fitting that my first EASY project is a crochet project because crocheting really is my first love in the crafting world.
This project is very EASY, has a function (very important) and works up nice and quick. Its always fun to find a new fiber to work with too….jute is lots of fun to work with. Hope you enjoy!


Skill Level: EASY

Hold one strand of Jute and one strand of yarn together for whole coaster.
You will be working in the round throughout pattern.

Coaster:
Ch 2
Rnd 1 – 6sc in 2nd ch from hk.
Rnd 2 – 2sc in each st around. (12)
Rnd 3 – (sc in next, 2sc in next) around. (18)
Rnd 4 – (sc in next 2, 2sc in next) around. (24)
Fasten off and weave in all ends.

The End…

    Congratulations on your new sweet little babe!
    Nice job on this little project! I love crochet and have made lots of things over the years including a set of three bears for each of my four children Whew! I still crochet but spend a lot more of my time in my studio/laundry room making cards. Here’s my blog — come on by for a visit. I’m a friend of your Mom’s and found your blog through her e-mail

    I just made these up tonight as a “Thank You” gift to a lady that gave me a whole bunch of crochet pattern books… I’ve never even met this lady, but I can’t see how anyone would not like these! Thanks for the pattern!

    I really like the coasters. Can you help me? I don’t know what to do with the ends of the Jute strands… Do you just cut them off?

      Use your crochet hook to weave in the ends (approx 2 to 3 inches) on the bottom (or inside, depending on the project). You don’t want to cut it too short as it might come out and the coaster might become holey.

    I’m a very basic beginner. I love how you detailed your instructions for those of us who aren’t very familiar with terms and stitches. I have been wanting to make some coasters like these and I believe I could actually make these! Thank you for considering the layman out there who would like to learn.

    This is a wonderful, quick craft for housewarmings and White Elephant gifts! 😀 Thank you so much! I never thought of crocheting with jute!

    Ok first, I love crocheting n have made many projects over the years. My 1st was a two piece bikini wheno I was a preteen. I crochet when possible. I have had a wild bug to use my yarn, on easy projects for gifts. This project is perfect.. lol lol.. I love quick very easy patterns. These coasters, and place mats in same material, would be great gifts anytime. Sorry, there I go rambling, Oh ok and 2nd, what is Jute? I haven’t heard of Jute before. Is it a brand or what?

    What a great idea! I am brainstorming today to come up with cute things to make for an upcoming church bazaar and coasters made with yarn and jute would be great! Too hot right now for hats and scarves… Thanks!

    What is “hk”? Otherwise sounds really simple. Thanks for the pattern.
