Notes 

Pattern written in UK terms

Tension not critical for this project but should be consistent throughout. Using a 4mm hook each coaster measures approx. 5in/20cms at the widest point.

Starting 3 chain counts as 1 treble crochet stitch, keep this starting chain quite loose to make it easier to slip stitch into to join at the end of each round.

Pattern is worked in the round, do not turn your work at the end of each round
