I’m in love with all things watermelon right now! Maybe because it reminds me so much of nice sunny, summery days. After I made my Watermelon Slice Plushie, I decided that I needed to make some Watermelon Coasters!

Watermelon Slice

These coasters are made with 100% cotton yarn. I like to use ‘I Love This Yarn.’ It’s so much softer than most cotton yarns and works up beautifully.

I wouldn’t recommend any other yarn for coasters but cotton. Cotton will absorb with condensation from your glass, where as acrylic won’t. Plus, they should be easy to wash and take care of.

I have made other watermelon coasters before and the seeds were always stitched on. I didn’t want to have to stitch the seeds on once I finished crocheting the watermelon, so I decided to make a pattern that incorporated the seeds in the stitches while crocheting the piece.

They are such a bright and cheery piece! I think that would even make great gifts. Who doesn’t love watermelons?!

I’ve also made a video tutorial for this pattern!
