T-SHIRT YARN CROCHET COASTER

Recently I was so hooked by T-shirt yarn so I’ve designed few patterns. I like the contemporary look of  everything made from T-shirt  yarn and how quick you can see the final result from your work. T-shirt yarn is pretty sturdy and is perfect for home decor.  You can make the yarn by yourself  or just grab some from local yarn shop as I did.  I’ll show you a very easy, beautiful and practical  project with pretty  knit look. 
KNIT LOOK COASTER

T-shirt yarn,  crochet hook 9.0 mm (M/N) or 10.0 mm (N/P) – depends on the yarn you’ll use, yarn needle and scissors.

STITCHES:
sc- single crochet,
ssc – split single crochet – insert the hook into the center of the upside-down “V”, yarn over, pull the yarn through creating two loops on hook, yarn over, pull the yarn through both loops creating one loop.
​​reverse sc(crab stitch) – work from left to right (backwards), insert the hook, from front to back, in the next stitch to the right, yarn over  and draw the yarn through the stitch(like you do regular sc), yarn over and draw through the 2 loops on the hook .
