I decided to design my own sandwich coaster set inspired by some of the other great sandwich coasters out there. The project is fairly simple, except a few weird hiccups (errr, burps?) occasionally, and could be completed in a day to a weekend’s time by anyone who is familiar with how to do the stitches in the pattern. I use standard crochet shorthand abbreviations for this pattern.

Abbreviations Used in Pattern:

  • sl st – slip stitch
  • ch – chain
  • sc – single crochet
  • sc2tog – single crochet two together
  • hdc – half double crochet
  • dc – double crochet
  • * * – repeat instructions between asterisks

Finished Size: 
Bread slices: 4¾×4¾
Tomato: 3½” diameter
Lettuce: 4″ diameter
Cheese Slice: 3¾×4¼

Crusts

Using brown yarn:

Attach yarn at bottom corner of bread slice. Sl st 15 times along bottom. Continue to sl st evenly around the corner and up the side of the bread for 17 stitches. Round corner and sl st evenly across the top in each sc space (9 spaces). Round the corner again and sl st down the side of the bread evenly for 17 stitches. Fasten off and weave in ends when you reach the bottom.

Repeat for your second slice of bread.
