Fruity Christmas Gifts

I’ve been in crochet coaster mode over the weekend, and have found a very cool pot holder pattern that I thought could be turned into a cute little coaster.  Introducing the watermelon coaster!

Watermelon Crochet Coaster

I had to frog it a couple of times and reduce the number of rows to keep it within coaster dimensions.  I also think that the next one should have a single crochet row of green ‘skin’ instead of half double crochet, as it looks a bit thick on this one.  But other than that I think it came together quite nicely.  I am working on an ‘orange’ coaster at the moment, and there will also be a lemon coaster in the set.  I will need to think of another fruit with a colourful centre to complete the set!

I used 100% cotton for this – 2 x strands of 4 ply yarn, with a 4mm hook to keep it nice and tight.
