Materials:
  • 4.0 mm "G" crochet hook
  • 2 balls of Twist by Mango Moon in the "Lime" colorway (I used one for the placemats, and another for the coasters)
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors

Sizing:
  • Placemat is 15 inches across at its widest points.
  • Coasters are 5 inches across at their widest points.

Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:

Instructions for Coasters:

Chain 4 and join into a ring with a slip stitch.

Round 1: Chain 4 (counts as a dc), then work (a dc into center of ring, chain 1) 11 times. Join to close with a slip stitch.

Note: If you want to make each round in the same color, simply slip stitch until you reach a ch 1 space and keep going. If you want to switch colors...cut yarn and join the new yarn at one of the ch 1 spaces and tie securely.

Round 2: Chain 3 and work a dc in the same space. Chain 1, then work two double crochet in the next (chain 1) space. Keep doing this all the way around, working 2 dc in each space, then a chain 1. Join to close with a slip stitch.

Round 3: Chain 4th work 2 dc in the same space, then chain 1. In the next space, work three dc, then chain 1. Keep doing this all the way around the circle...3 dc, then a chain 1 in each space. Join with a slip stitch to close.

Round 4 (circle becomes hexagon in this round): Chain 4, and in the first space work 2 dc, chain 1, then 3 dc all in the same space. This creates the first hexagon corner. In the next space, to work the hexagon side, chain 1, then work 3 dc in next space. Keep going in this manner, working a corner of two "clusters" and a side of 1 cluster (each cluster being separated by a chain 1). Join with a slip stitch to close.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Repeat round 4 until your hexagon has a total of 12 rounds or until placemat is desired size.

Fasten off and weave in any ends that remain.
