Valentines Heart Coaster

Valentines Heart Coaster

Try out my latest Valentines day project – Crochet heart coasters! Cute huh? I love adding an extra handmade touch on special occasions like this. I have made mine in a traditional red but you could of course choose whatever colour yarn you like. In this post you will find all of the information you need to make these coasters, written instructions PLUS a videos tutorial available in right and left handed versions.



Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guild’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions. You can find my EBook HERE.


What you will need

Pattern notes

Yarn used: Yarn and Colours ‘Fabulous’ in the colour Pepper (less than one ball needed)

Hook size used: 5.5mm (I went down on the hook side to ensure a tight tension)

Written in UK terms

Gauge isn’t important with this project. Just keep your hook size and tension consistent.

Video tutorial can be found at the base of the post.
