Hello & Welcome to our very first Mini-Mystery Crochet Along! If you haven’t already done so, please make sure to sign-up for our newsletter so that you don’t miss out on future mini-mystery crochet alongs!
If you're new to our Mini-Mystery Crochet Alongs, please read our Information Guide in this blog post HERE.
For our very first Mini-Mystery Crochet Along (MMCAL) I chose a worsted weight cotton yarn from my stash. I used both Knit Picks Dishie Multi yarn and Red Heart Yarn's new Scrubby Smoothie for my samples. Several other worsted weight cotton yarns will work just as well.
Although, our MMCAL has ended, this free crochet pattern will be available for you here on the blog forever.

- Yarn: Worsted Weight / 4 Cotton Yarn I've used both Knit Picks Dishie Multi & Red Heart Yarn's Scrubby Smoothie for mine, but many other worsted weight cotton yarns will work just as well. Yardage: approximately 25 yards
- Crochet Hook: H/8/5.00mm (My favorite crochet hooks are the Clover Amour Hooks, I’ve never had an ache in my hand since switching)
- Yarn Needle
- Scrap Piece of Yarn to use as a stitch marker
Many of these materials are available for purchase through our affiliates below:
- ch(s): chain(s)
- sl st(s): slip stitch(es)
- sc: single crochet
- dc: double crochet
- st(s): stitch(es)
- RS: right side
- Rep: repeat
- Rnd: round
- BLO: back loop only
- Gauge is not crucial for this project
- Finished Size: 4.25"
- I tend to crochet on the tighter side. You may need to go down a hook size (or two) to meet gauge if you crochet on the looser side.
Coaster Drink Coaster Instructions
Note: The coaster is worked in continuous rounds to keep from having an unsightly seam. Do not join at the end of each round, instead, use a scrap piece of yarn to keep track of the beginning of each round. Move the scrap of yarn up as you complete each round.
Designer Note: If you prefer beginning w/ a ch 2, sl st in the 2nd ch to form a ring, instead of a Magic Ring, you can certainly use that method with no issues.
