Notes For How to Crochet a Coaster for Christmas

  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up in rows.
  • After the end of each row turn and ch 1. The ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  • Since there are a wrong side and a right side to the mug rugs, I used a combination of intarsia and carrying yarn across the back for the colorwork. Experiment and see what works best for you.
  • Please visit the Crochet Colorwork Guide for a full tutorial on colorwork in Intarsia, Fair Isle, and Tapestry. As well as a FREE Sheep Yarn Bobbin Printable to assist you with this project. No one loves tangles.
