Conversation Heart Coaster Pattern

Surprise your sweetheart with a set of these sweet conversation heart coasters.  These coasters are perfect for Valentine's day or any time of the year.  Make a set with several different "sweet nothing" phrases embroidered on them.  Not feeling the love?  Change the phrases to "Bug Off" or Luv Stinks" for a sarcastic anti-Valentine's day coaster.

This pattern is made with less than 1 ounce of cotton worsted weight yarn such as Sugar'n Cream or Lion Brand kitchen cotton in pastel colors.  You will also need scraps of red yarn for the words.  I used a size g hook but you can use any similar sized hook.  To hide the ends and to embroider the words you will need a blunt tapestry needle.

If you have any questions about this patterns, feel free to post a comment and I will do my best to help you.

Row 1: Ch 2, turn
Row 2: 2 sc in 2nd ch from the hook, ch 1 turn (2)
Row 3: 1 hdc then 1 sc in first st, 1sc then 1 hdc in second st (4)
Row 4-8: Ch 2 turn, 1hdc then 1sc in first st, sc across to last stitch, place 1 sc then 1hdc in last st
Row 9-12: ch 2 turn, 1hdc in first st, 1 sc across increasing by 1 (inc made by placing 2 sc in the same st), 1 hdc in last st
Row 13: ch 1 turn, 1sc in each of the next 9 st, ch 1 turn (9)
Row 14 & 15: ch 1 turn, 1sc in each st across deceasing by 1 (dec made by sc2tog)
Row 16 & 17: ch 1 turn, sc2tog, 1sc in each st across to last 2 st, sc2tog in last 2 st
Row 18: ch 1 turn, skip first st, 1hdc in next st, sl in last sc.

For left side:
Reattach yarn at the center of row 12 and sc across. Continue rows 14-18

Finishing: sc around outer edge placing 1 sc in each st or end of each row. Embroider sweet nothings onto the center of the heart with red yarn and a tapestry needle.

Feel free to make this pattern for yourself, to give as a gift or to sell, but please link to the original pattern when sharing.
