Blessed Three Star Coaster is a great first project to learn Tunisian crochet in the round technique using double ended hook. It works up fast, which makes it a great last minute gift idea and perfect stash-busting option. The best results are achieved by selecting similar colours.

Notes
The Blessed Three Star Coaster is worked in the round, with FP worked facing RS and RP facing WS. Each round is worked in smaller increments with adding as many lps on the hook as possible (FP), turning the work around and working the lps off to last 3 lps (RP) from the opposite side of the hook.
It is crucial to use a stitch marker to mark 1st st of each rnd and move it up with each consecutive rnd.
The st count refers to the number of lps per round.
