Hello! If you watch my Facebook Live videos you know that I’m so excited for Halloween. It is my favorite time of the year for a lot of reason, including decorations, food, and that the weather changes (in most places) to get a bit chillier.
Originally this week was supposed to feature the Sally Skull Earrings as the new free pattern but the pair of earrings I worked up didn’t photograph too well… my use of black thread for the skull make them hard to read. So I’m re-doing them and I’ll get ’em published next week. I didn’t have time this last weekend because my hubs and I decided on a quick trip out of town before he has to go back to work.
Anyway, I hope you like the Witch Hat coaster and earring set that I’ve got here for you. They’re fun and quick, combining my favorite things into one blog post: tapestry crochet, thread, jewelry, and Halloween!

Materials: 

  • 2.25 mm crochet hook
  • Size 10 crochet thread
  • Needle that will weave in your ends
  • Fabric stiffener (optional)
  • US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook
  • Worsted/ size #4/ medium weight yarn
    • less than an oz, 3 colors
    • I just used random cotton yarn
  • Yarn needle

Gauge: 

  • G: 4.5” x 4.5” = 19 dcs x 9 rows
  • 2.25 mm: 1″ x 1″ = 10 scs x 10 rows

Terms/ stitches:

  • RS: right side
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet
  • Sc2tog: single crochet 2 stitches together

Notes:

  • Both patterns are worked back and forth in rows, with a turn at the end/ beginning.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch in either pattern.
  • Both patterns are worked from the bottom up.
  • Coaster: all of the stitches in this pattern are single crochets, because of this the sides portion (where all the color changes are) only tells you how many stitches to do in what color, this is what the number in the parenthesis means.
  • Coaster: rather than changing, cutting, and weaving in the ends of all the colors, the yarn is carried through the bags in the photos. Here’s a great tutorial on color changes. In this pattern, the active yarn is worked over the inactive.
  • Coaster: also check out this post about tapestry crochet from Moogly, it’s helpful.
  • You can replace the chain row with a foundation single crochet row.
  • Coaster graph: color A is white, color B is brown, and color C is purple.
  • Earrings: color A is black and color B is orange.

Finished dimensions:

  • Coaster
    • Height: 4″
    • Width: 4″
  • Earrings:
    • Height: 1.5″ (not including findings)
    • Width: 1.5″ (widest)
