Birthday Wishes Coaster - Free Crochet Pattern


Birthday Wishes Coaster
I already did a March themed coaster for my niece, but she had her first birthday this month too!


Materials:
Worsted weight yarn
H hook
yarn needle for weaving in ends

Cake:

Row 1 - With cake color, ch 16, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch to end, ch 1, turn.

Row 2 to 11 - sc in each sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 12 - ss 3, sc in same st, 9 sc, ss in same st as last sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 13 - sk ss, 9 sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 14 to 19 - sc in each sc, ch 1, turn. (On row 19, do not ch 1, but finish off instead.) Weave in ends.

Candle:

With candle color, attach with a ss to center st at top of cake, ch 4, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each of remaining chs (there should be 2), ss in same st where you attached candle yarn, finish off, weave in ends.

Flame:

With yellow, attach to top of candle with a ss, ch 3, sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, ss in same ch where you attached flame, finish off, weave in ends.

Embellish however you wish. I choose to do some chain top stitching made to look like piped frosting... use your imagination!♥
