Pistachio Cotton Coasters. The Pattern

Pistachio Cotton Coasters 4

Last year I made the same coasters in rainbow colors for which I draw a graphic chart, and now I've decided to make a written description for those of you for whom it is easier then read graphic charts. 

Pistachio Cotton Coasters 1

Today's version is crocheted in Rico Design Creative Cotton Aran with a 4,5 mm hook. The colors are: Pistachio, Light Pistachio, Nature.

USA terminology: 
slst - slip stitch
ch - chain 
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet dc2tog - 2 double crochet together 
dc3tog - 3 double crochet together 
dc4tog - 4 double crochet together

Pistachio Cotton Coasters 2

How to make 2 double crochet together/ dc2tog::  (Yarn over, insert your hook in a required stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops) - 2 times, yarn over, draw through all loops on hook.
For dc3tog and dc4tog you have to repeat the basic part 3 or 4 times respectively. 
Also here is a great tutorial of how to make dc2tog.

The size of finished coasters is 11 cm in diameter.

The Pattern:: 

Ch 4 join in ring with a slip stitch.
Round 1::  ch 3, 11 dc in ring, join with a slst in first dc (not in top of ch 3), don't over tighten, then the slip stitch will be over the beginning ch 3 and it will look as lovely very first dc of round 1.

Rnd 2::  slst in space between the beginning ch 3 and following dc, ch 2, dc2tog in same space, ch 1, (dc3tog in space between the two following dc, ch 1) - 11 times, slst in top of beginning dc3tog, slst in first ch-1-space of the round.

Rnd 3::  ch 2, dc3tog in same space, ch 2, (dc4tog in following ch-1-space, ch 2) - 11 times, slst in top of beginning dc4tog. After you will finish this round you can notice that your coaster is a bit twisted up, as a small crochet bowl. Don't worry! After you made the last round the coaster will be perfect flat.

Rnd 4::  ch 1, sc in same space, (hdc, 3 dc, hdc) in following ch-2-space, **sc in top of dc4tog, (hdc, 3 dc, hdc) in following ch-2-space - 10 times in total from **, (hdc, 3 dc, hdc) in last ch-2-space, slst in first hdc(not in first sc). Fasten off.

  12. Your coasters are lovely. I am intrigued by the flowers on the table. Are they crocheted or are they crafted from chenille stems?
