Allemande Coasters - Tunisian Striped Mitered Coasters
"These are fun and quick to make and will delight the recipient of the set YOU make. Suggested yarn is 100% cotton for durability and absorbency. For ninja crocheters, full text of the pattern is included on my blog. Helpful photos are included in the downloadable, printable, ad-free version in my Etsy shop. I have also provided a FREE video tutorial for right-handed crocheters and the same tutorial in a left-handed version on my YouTube channel. See my blog post for links. "
NotesThese fun little coasters measure approximately 3.5” x 3.5” (9 cm x 9 cm). They are worked with a smaller hook than is normally used in Tunisian crochet. The purpose for this is to achieve a dense, sturdy fabric that works well for a coaster.
This design is worked in two sections. The first section is a decreasing triangle. Then the work is pivoted and an increasing triangle is worked into the stitches along the edge of the first triangle. This move resembles the “Allemande” move in square dancing.
