Solid Granny Square Coaster without Gaps



The Basic Solid Granny Square coaster is another really simple design that can be used to make a set of coasters. You will love how easy and fast this coaster works up. I love making crocheted versions of household items and this would also make perfect handmade gift for your loved ones!!!

You can make them in holiday or seasonal colors as well.They are great for using up your scrap yarn.

The thing I absolutely love about this pattern is that unlike the classic Granny Square , this doesn't have any gaps between the stitches.

Materials Used:-
  1. 8 Ply Yarn
  2. 4mm Crochet Hook


Round 1:-
Start with a Magic Circle.

Chain 2.
This doesn't count as a stitch.This is just to bring the yarn to the same height.



12 Double Crochet in the circle.





Slip stitch on top of the first Double crochet. Pull the yarn end to close the circle.



Round 2:-
Start with a Standing Double Crochet. Check out the tutorial for Standing Double Crochet.



5 Double Crochet in the same stitch.

1 Double Crochet each in the next 2 stitches.

5 Double Crochet in the next stitch.

Repeat *(5DC,1DC,1DC)* in rest of the stitches.

Slip Stitch on top of the first Double Crochet to end the round.

Round 3:-
Before you start working, mark the corners with stitch markers. The 3rd stitch of the 5 Double Crochet group from the previous round is the center most stitch.

Start with a Standing Double Crochet.




1 Double Crochet in the same stitch.
1 Double Crochet in the next stitch.
You Should reach the corner now.
5 Double Crochet in the corner stitch.



1 Double Crochet each in the remaining stitches untill you reach the next corner.
5 Double Crochet in the corner stitch.
Repeat all around.
Slip stitch to end the round.






Round 4:-
This round is similar to the previous round.
Again, mark your corner stitches with stitch markers.Keeping track of the stitches is so much easier when you follow this method.
Start with a Standing Double Crochet.
1 Double Crochet in each of the stitch untill you reach the corner.
5 Double crochet in the corner stitch.
Repeat all around.
Slip stitch to end the round.





Your coaster is ready to be used.
You can continue the same pattern and make it bigger to make a Table Mat or even a Blanket.






See....there are no visible gaps!!!!!
