Hello!
Like I said last week, I put off my tea cup coaster in favor of the scarf I got the idea for, so I’m back this week to present the tea cup coaster.
Like the mug cocoa coaster pattern, this pattern is seriously easy and really lends itself to being a applique so you can add it to other projects, like bags/ purses or pillows.
I don’t really have a lot to chat about this week, as I feel like I’m dragging a quite a bit. I think I’m sick or at least in the early stages of getting sick and I’m not too happy about it. I’ve been feeling dizzy and just really sleepy, a little dizzy/ nausea also. Ugh. I don’t want to get sick. I have too much to do! But isn’t that the truth with us all?

Materials:

  • Worsted weight cotton yarn
  • US G (4.25 mm) crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle

Gauge:

  • 4.5” x 4.5” = 19 dcs x 9 rows
    (although it’t not entirely critical)

Stitches/ Terms used:

  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Sc: single crochet
  • Hdc: half double crochetRavelry link

Finished measurements: 

  • Width: 4.5″ (top of cup), just over 2″ (bottom), 4.5″ (middle of cup, where handle is)
  • Height: just over 3″

Handle:

Ch 1, turn tea cup so you would be crocheting down the side, slip stitch into the next row, slip stitch into the next row (all together you’ve gone down two rows), chain 10, slip stitch into the third row from the bottom, ch 1, turn, [10 sc, 5 hdc, 3 sc] around the ch 10 space, slip st into 3 row from top to secure (where you began your handle). 

Tag:
Row 1: Leave a couple of inches in tail, chain 5, sc into second ch from the hook and across – 4 scs
Rows 2 – 4: Turn, ch 1, sc across – 4 scs
Leave another couple of inches in tail and then fasten off.
Use the tails you left to secure the tag to the tea cup, the positioning is really up to you.
Use another color, traditionally white or off white, and create the string attached to the tag. You can just do the string hanging (like the pink/white variegated cup), attached at the top and to the tag or you can use surface crocheting to attach it to the tea cup itself (blue cup). Your choice.

So, there it is, the (possibly) long awaited tea cup coaster. 😀
Stay healthy and happy, out there you all.
