I made these coasters in honor of my Alma mater, Crowder College. I started by making a simple three round coaster; more detailed instructions here.
I used the contrast color idea from the doily coasters I made last week; directions for how to add the contrast color here.
The directions for the 'C':
I created the 'C' using three rounds.
Round One- Stitch 10 along the top of the second round. Stitch over the top slightly toward the left, then stitch into the middle of the dc on the left. Stitch out of the dc, then back into the top of the second round. These stitches should create the '<' shape. Stitch 10 along the top of the second row.
Round Two- Stitch into the space where you ended the last stitch. Stitch 9, heading toward the '<' shape. When you get there, stitch toward the bottom half of the shape, the stitch outward toward the right. This rounds out the gap left from the '<'. Stitch 10.
Round Three- Stitch into the space where you ended the last stitch. Stitch 17. Cut the yarn with 4" to spare, and pull the yarn through the loop. The tail should now be on top with the 'C'.
From the bottom, pull the tail through to make the last loop before weaving in.
