Lacy Shells Coaster Pattern. Instant digital download.

Add a touch of elegance to your table.

This lovely shell pattern creates a vintage feel without being too frilly - which I love.
I was working on a shawl/scarf using this stitch and it occurred to me that it would look equally lovely in other items and so this is the first in a series of Lacy Shell items for the home.

The stitch is easy to do and has a simple 2 row repeat that creates the offset shells.

Use a single colour or change colour every round, this coaster will be a charming vintage touch for your home or a pretty gift for a friend.

Level: Easy
Suitable for a beginner who is comfortable with working in the round, chains, single and double crochet. Includes tutorial links, photos and a partial chart to assist with those new to some of the techniques used.

You'll need:
Approx. 15-25 m (16-27 yards) 8ply (DK) yarn.
I've used Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply cotton in Fawn, Arctic and Powder Blue.
4mm hook
*You can use any yarn for this pattern with an appropriate hook though the finished size will vary.

Finished size:
4 rounds makes a 10cm square (4in sq).
5 rounds makes a 12.5cm square (5in sq).

Included in this 7 page PDF pattern:
9 tutorial photos
5 other photos
American English crochet terms used throughout.
Crocheted in the round.
Partial chart for help with stitch placement.
Clear concise written instructions with a layout designed to make it easy to follow and not lose your place.
Landscape layout that looks good on a laptop, tablet or phone (simply zoom in on half the page on your smart phone to see the pattern clearly in portrait mode).
Links to 3 tutorials to help with the special stitches.

As a secondary school English and language teacher I have extensive experience in writing learning resources that make information more easily accessible for all. So I encourage Beginners to give this a try.
I am also happy to help if anyone is in need of any assistance with this pattern.

This is a beautiful pattern that was easy to follow. I’m still learning to read patterns, so I really loved that she included a helpful chart. Also, as soon as I saw the design I thought “these would make gorgeous snowflake earrings if done in thread“ & I was right! Of course, they make beautiful coasters as well. 😉

I was able to follow the pattern pretty easily minus adjusting my double magic circle, but I YouTubed a tutorial for adjusting it.

Real lovely coaster design. Adapted this as per instructions to make it bigger .. for a mat (see photograph). Instruction diagram and photographs (with explanations) really help. Worth paying for - this is a really thorough pattern guide.

Ended up being very small & I just don't like using larger yarn & hooks. But cute pattern instead of usual round.
