July Coaster of The Month - Heart Graph Coaster Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

If you have been wanting 
to try an easy crochet 
graph pattern, this is for you.
And you get a really cool
Coaster that you can use.

Tips on Crocheting Graphs
1. Changing Colors - 
First -Work the last st to be done until 2 loops are left on the hooks.
Next pull up the new color through the 2 loops on the hook,
Then, Drop the 1st color, and continue to work with the new color.

2. Carrying Your Yarn -
Carrying your yarn is done, when changing colors. 
You leave the 1st color attached, and crochet over the yarn, 
on the back side.
Look Close and you can see the 
alternate colors showing through the heart. 
I only carried the yarn across the heart portion,
 not the whole coaster.

3. You will have a 
Front Side and a Back side.
Made sure you always pull your yarn to the
 back of your work when changing colors.
