Crochet Sandwich Coasters

crochet sandwich

So apparently back in the day there was a nobleman, the Earl of Sandwich, who liked to gamble all day and all night long. Of course he’d have to eat and one day, so engrossed in a game that he couldn’t leave the table, he got his assistant to put a chunk of meat between two slices of bread. The Earl’s gambling mates all thought it was a genius idea and they started ordering “the same as Sandwich”  and behold, the sandwich was born!

For some time I had the idea to make a set of drink coasters that when stacked together would look like a loaf of bread – cool idea but I worried it wouldn’t look like a loaf of bread and more like a stack of beige squares. When I found out Sandwich Day exists I knew that the loaf of bread coaster idea would become a sandwich coaster. After the construction of this very popular food item I couldn’t walk past the final project without doing a double take and reminding myself that it was made of yarn. Also, the yarn I used for the ham will now and forever be associated with ham. Surprisingly the yellow yarn is still just yellow yarn. If you have kids I feel like this set of coasters would double as play food. Makes me wish I’d learned to crochet as a kid, I can’t even imagine all the toys I’d make…

I hope you enjoy this free pattern and if you make a crochet sandwich coaster set of  your own be sure to snap a photo and share with #popsdemilk so I can be sure to find it!

Happy Sandwich Day!

For this project I used acrylic yarn because it’s machine washable and durable and we all know how important that is for crochet coasters. Normally I’d use cotton yarn, for the same reasons, but I didn’t have all the colours I needed. I kept my tension even while crocheting and wasn’t too mindful about the gauge or stitch count – you can alter the coasters very easily by adjusting  your tension and/or hook size.
