Crochet Cat Butt Coasters

How I made these adorable Crochet Cat Butt Coasters

A friend asked me to make these crochet cat butt coasters. I thought they were super cute and funny. When someone asks you to make cat butt coasters, you make cat butt coasters.

The original pattern and/or idea belongs to Shanna Compton who had or has an Etsy shop called Hooks + Balls. Just to be clear, I do not own this idea. I do not know the original pattern but this is what I came up with. I am a fly by the seat of my pants gal.

You will need to know how to

  • Crochet in the round
  • Slip stitch (sl st) *insert hook, yarn over (yo), pull through, pull through the loop on hook.
  • Single crochet (sc) *insert hook, yo, pull through, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook.
  • Half double crochet (hdc) *yo, insert hook, yo, pull through, yo, pull through all three loops on hook.
  • Double crochet (dc) *yo, insert hook, yo, pull through, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook, yo, pull through the remaining 2 loops on hook.

Materials

Use 100% Cotton

Coasters get wet, and because of that, your yarn material will need to be 100% cotton. Cotton is used for anything bathroom, kitchen or basically anything that gets wet. Cotton is durable and can withstand hot temperatures, unlike wool that will felt or melt and will not last long in the kitchen.

Round 1

Joining your new color

Sl st joining your last stitch and my first stitch with your new color, making a loop for my next round. (I crochet over my loose thread and tighten them as I go until I’ve covered them completely. Ta-da no weaving.)
