Halfway Slippy Mug Rug

The halfway slippy mug rug uses half double crochet and slip stitch to create a subtly textured design. Mug rugs can be a fun alternative to standard coasters, especially in the summer! This pattern is free online at my website, and it includes a video tutorial to walk you through the pattern. It is also available as a PDF purchase, which includes this design and two other mug rug designs (each of which are also available online for free with video tutorials).

Blessed Three Star Coaster

Blessed Three Star Coaster is a great first project to learn Tunisian crochet in the round technique using double ended hook. It works up fast, which makes it a great last minute gift idea and perfect stash-busting option. The best results are achieved by selecting similar colours. The Blessed Three Star Coaster is worked in the round, with FP worked facing RS and RP facing WS. Each round is worked in smaller increments with adding as many lps on the hook as possible (FP), turning the work around and working the lps off to last 3 lps (RP) from the opposite side of the hook. It is crucial to use a stitch marker to mark 1st st of each rnd and move it up with each consecutive rnd. The st count refers to the number of lps per round.
