I think we've all developed a new love crocheting! Below is the pattern that most of us worked on if you'd like to try one yourself...

Coasters measure 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".

Crème de la Crème™: One 2 (2 1/2) ounce ball makes 5 (6)

Crochet Hook: 5mm [US H-8].

GAUGE: Rnds 1-2 = 2 3/4" across. Use any size hook to
obtain the gauge.

Foundation: Ch 5, Join with slip stich to 5th ch from hook to make ring

Rnd 1: Ch 4; 11 dc in 4th ch from hook; join with a sl st to top of beg ch – 12 sts.

Rnd 2: Ch 3, dc in joining, 2 dc in each st around; join.
Rnd 3: Ch 3, 2 dc in joining, ch 1, skip next st, [3dc in next st, ch 1, skip next st] 11 times; join.

Rnd 4: Ch 1, sc in the next dc, (2 dc, ch1, 2 dc) all in sp * sc in next 2 dc, (2 dc, ch1, 2 dc) all in ch 1 space* repeat 11 times; join to first sc

Fasten off. Weave in ends.

ABBREVIATIONS: ch = chain; dc = double crochet; mm = millimeters; sc
= single crochet; sl = slip; st = stitch; [ ] = work directions in brackets the
number of times specified..

And if you'd like to make the yummy pumpkin chip muffins we all scarfed down...try this recipe!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 2/3 c Flour
1 c Sugar
1/4 t Salt
1 t Pumpkin Pie Spice
2 Eggs
1 c Pumpkin (not Pumpkin Pie mix!)
1/2 c Melted Butter
6 oz Chocolate Chips

Mix flour, sugar, salt, and pumpkin pie spice in a medium size bowl, then mix in eggs, pumpkin, melted butter, and chocolate chips.

Spoon muffin batter into muffin pans 3/4 of the way full.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 min for regular muffins, or 16 - 18 min for mini-muffins (do not over bake!)

That about covers craft night! Our next night will be Tuesday, November 3...We hope you can make it!
Happy Crafting,
Jill & Laura
