Coasters_24smlmethod:

Using colour a start with a magic ring (this post here by Alice describes how to make these really well)

round 1 (colour a): 3 ch (counts as first tr), 1 tr, 2 ch, * 2 tr cl, 2ch **, repeat from * to ** 4 times  into circle, join with a ss into top of first 3 ch set (6 x 2 tr cl, 2ch)

round 2 (colour b): 3 ch, 4 tr into 2 ch space, 4 tr into every 2 ch space to end of round, join with a ss into top of first 3 ch (6 x 4 tr)

round 3 (colour c): 5 ch (counts as first tr and 2 ch), miss next tr, * 1 tr, 2 ch, miss next tr ** repeat from * to end of round, join with a ss into top of first 3 ch (13 x 1 tr, 2ch sts)

round 4 (colour d): holding row 3 forward, repeat row 3 in the missed trebles from row 2 (13 x 1 tr, 2ch sts)

round 5 (colour e): top stitch between each post of each treble of row 2 (I think this may actually be called tambour crochet)

round 6 (colour e): working into rows 3 & 4 together, 2 ch (counts has first htr), 3 htr in first 2 ch space, 4 htr into next and all other 2 ch spaces, join with a ss into top of first 2ch (13 x 4 htr)

round 9 (colour a): ch 1, dc in same stitch, dc into next and all other dc of previous row, ss to first dc

Coasters_15smlAs usual, please let me know if there are any errors ~ I’m a definite amateur at pattern writing.
