Did you go to fairs as a child? What about amusement parks? What is your favorite ride? Or did you stay down on the ground, to just watch the excitement and eat the delicious food?
Fairs and amusement parks, were my enjoyment hands down. I can remember going there with my Grandparents every summer, it was always my special place and fantasy place.
As a kid, I was a total adrenaline junkie and still am as an Adult. Lived for the rides. Especially the classic, Ferris Wheel. But, I could never, also pass up a good Roller Coaster either.
But, you find me on the FERRIS WHEEL. Riding it for hours and never bored.
Being able to get the highest point, to feel the light breeze on a hot summer day. Seeing the beautiful lights upon a great stary summer night. Just, the best feeling in the world.
So, I thought, why not create this memory in a keepsake piece. Bringing you a fun and decorative coaster, into your home or giving it as a gift to someone.
You won’t just stop at one, once you start, they multiply quick.
Lately, I have been falling more in love with Caron Simply Soft Solids Yarn. This yarn has a sheen look to it and it’s super soft. It is 100% acrylic yarn and love the way how it works and the squish factor it gives off.
This yarn comes in multiple ranges of color. The 2 colors shown in these samples I used, Country Blue and DK Country. Each skein holds 315yds. I knew it would be the best fit for this pattern.
You may substitute for any other type of worsted weight 4 yarn. Furls Crochet has there Wander Yarn that would work with this as well and many great colors to choose from. You can also use cotton yarn as well.
Here are some other great yarns you could choose from as well for this pattern 👇🏻
Sl-St: Slip Stitch
MR: magic ring
DC: double crochet
TRC: treble crochet
Bean: bean stitch
YO: yarn over
FO: fasten off

US Crochet Terminology
Basic knowledge for using DC, and TRC.
Ch1, Ch3, Ch4, and Ch5 counts as a stitch.
Ch1 at the beginning of R4 doesn’t count as a stitch. Ch1’s closing the Bean Stitch, don’t count as a stitch.
You will be sl-st at the end of each round.
After, completing your first round, pull your tail tight to close the ring.
