Tunisian Crochet Heart Coasters and Hot Pad – A free Pattern

If you’re looking for a good Tunisian crochet project to get your feet wet with, you may have just found it!

When Valentine’s Day rolls around in our house I like to find little themed items to make the day all the more festive.  This year I decided to try my hand at a little more Tunisian Crochet and make a set of coasters (or mug rugs) and a pot holder for my home.

This set works up relatively quickly and you can use your favourite brand of worsted weight crochet cotton.

The coasters are made using the Tunisian Simple stitch, which, if you are new to this technique, this is a great first stitch to start with.  The heart on the front side of the coasters and hot pad is simply cross stitched on.

This pattern includes the written instructions as well as a graph to assist you in cross stitching the heart.  A video tutorial is also available on YouTube and can be found here:
