Sandwich Coasters Crochet Pattern

crochet sandwich

Back in the day there was a nobleman, the Earl of Sandwich, who liked to gamble all day and all night long. Not wanting to interrupt his gambling to eat, 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. Inspired by this, I designed this sandwich coasters crochet pattern!

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.

This set of coasters would double as play food. Makes me wish I’d learned how to crochet as a kid, I can’t even imagine all the toys I’d make…

The free crochet pattern is below or you can purchase the inexpensive and ad-free PDF version of the pattern in my Etsy shop.

Sandwich Coasters Crochet Pattern

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 colors I needed. I kept my tension even while crocheting and wasn’t too mindful about the gauge or stitch count – you can alter the sandwich coasters crochet pattern very easily by adjusting  your tension and/or hook size.

Materials
-worsted weight (4) yarn in beige, medium brown, red, pink, yellow, and green. Here’s what I used:
Bread: Bernat Super Value – Oatmeal and small amount of Topaz
Tomato: Red Heart Super Saver – Cherry Red
Ham: Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice – Pink
Cheese: Bernat Phentex – Sol
Lettuce: Bernat Super Value – Lush
-size 4.00mm crochet hook
-yarn needle (for weaving ends)

Stitches (US Terms)
st(s) – stitch(es)
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
inc – increase (2 sts in same st)
sl st – slip stitch
sk – skip
