These Summer Star Coasters are a quick and easy way to add some patriotic style to your home. They work up very quickly and will look great at your next summer barbecue! Of course, you can always do them in other colors to fit in anywhere you want some starry sparkle. 🙂 They would also make a pretty garland if you’d like to hang them instead. I think you’ll be happy with this pattern any way you choose to use it!

- Beginning chains count as stitches.
- I prefer a magic circle to start so there’s no hole in the middle. However, if you’d like, you can chain 2 and work 4 sc into the second chain from hook for Round 1.
- Do build-up chains loosely to make it easier to get your hook through for the slip stitch at the end of each round.
- I recommend putting a stitch marker in the top of your build-up chain, it makes it much easier to find where to place your slip stitches.
Make a magic circle. (Or use optional instructions in Notes.)
Round 1: Sc four times into the magic circle. Join with a ss. (The ss counts as a st here so total stitches are 5)
Round 2: Ch 1, sc in next st, 2 sc in each stitch around circle, ss to join. (10 sts)
Round 3: Ch 2, 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in each stitch around circle. (20 sts)
Round 4: Ch 2, *2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st*, repeat from * to * around circle. (30 sts)
Round 5: Ch 1, sc in next stitch, sc, dc, (dc, tc, ch 2, ss in 2nd ch from hook – picot made, tc, dc) in next st, dc *sc, sc, sc, dc, (dc, tc, ch 2, ss in 2nd ch from hook – picot made, tc, dc) in next st, dc*, repeat from * to * three more times, sc in last st, ss to join.
