Coastal Coasters CAL… Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of my โ€˜Coastal Crochet Coasters CALโ€™! ๐Ÿ’™ It was so lovely to see all your octagon coasters pop up on my social media yesterday… so many fabulous coasters! ๐Ÿ˜ Thank you so much to those who shared their progress… I hope you enjoyed yesterdayโ€™s octagon shaped coaster. Today we have a circle design… itโ€™s a circular sunset! โค๏ธ

And hereโ€™s a round up from photos shared over on Instagram yesterday…

And these are photos shared in the Facebook Group โ€˜Coastal Crochetโ€™…

Aren’t they wonderful?!

Letโ€™s move onto our circular sunset coaster… and with a south facing coastline, we do get some fabulous sea sunsets here, especially at this time of year. All these photos were taken during the last couple of months… there have been some good ones! ๐Ÿ˜

Iโ€™m so happy to have created this sunset coaster inspired by all those beautiful sunsets… ๐Ÿ˜

Do experiment with colours… in the coaster below I replaced my yarns D and F with yarn B which is the Rich Coral. ๐Ÿ™‚ It looks a little more orange in this photo because this was a late night photo… what a difference daylight makes!

For all the coasters I used: Scheepjes Cahlista (100% cotton, 50g/85m), 1 ball in each of the following colours: Yarn A Crystalline (385), Yarn B Rich Coral (410), Yarn C Vivid Blue (146), Yarn D Lemonade (403), Yarn E Cyan (397), Yarn F Snow White (106).

3.5mm hook (or hook size to suit your tension), yarn needle, scissors
