The Hexicomb Coaster-Free Crochet Pattern

Standard

I had tested a couple of patterns for a friend of mine on Instagram that had this honeycomb design on it. (If you want to check out her patterns her instagram handle is @kneedlesandlove.) Then I thought, it would be really cute to have matching honeycomb coasters to go with the kitchen towel and wash cloth!

That’s when the brain storming began. It took a couple of tries (ok, like 30) to come up with this simple hexagon shaped honeycomb pattern. Thus was born The Hexicomb Coaster. I just smooshed the two words together like people do with celebrity names.

Here are the supplies you’ll need to make these little Hexi-coasters!

  • Size 4 cotton
  • Size 3.75 hook (F)
  • Stitch marker

Abbreviations: Double crochet-(dc), Double crochet 2 together-(Dc2tog), Single crochet-(sc), Stitch(es)-st(s), Chain(s)-ch(s), Space(s)-sp(s), Skip-(sk)

Gauge: 9 dc by 5 rows= 2″

Special notes: Chain 3 does not count as a double crochet in the decrease rows.
