Skill level: Advanced beginners
- Download a copy of the Spirit Mosaic 4 pattern by Elizabeth Ragsdale. It's available for $2 on Ravelry here.
- You'll need approximately 15 yards each of three colors of fingering weight yarn. One should be a light color for the background. The other two should be contrasting solid colors. Please do not bring black yarn as one of your colors. This technique requires you to pick up individual strands of yarn with your hook, and it is very difficult to see black yarn.
- You'll need an appropriate-sized crochet hook and a pair of scissors. A 3.5mm or 3.75mm hook should work well for fingering weight. Other weights of yarn also can be used, as long as all three colors are the same weight. If you use a heavier weight, your coaster will be bigger, and you'll need to use a larger hook.
Crochet 101 or other previous crochet experience. You should know the basic crochet stitches, especially chain stitch and single and double crochet. You should also know how to start with a slip knot and how to fasten off.
