Fall Inspired, Super Simple Hexagon Coasters - Free Crochet Pattern

This week, I wanted to work up some turkey coasters, but after two different failed attempts, I was inspired by one of them to work a Super Simple Hexagon Coaster. I did so with the same colors used in my turkey coasters, minus red, and created a fall inspired set. They could easily be worked up for any holiday or season with a color change, or work in one solid color.

Materials:
     - 15 Yards Each of Worsted Weight Cotton Yarn - I used Lily Sugar n Cream in Warm Brown, and Crafters Secret Cotton in Yellow and Bright Orange
     - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
     - #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends
     - Optional: Jewelry Pliers

Material Notes:
     Yarn Alternatives: Lion Brand's Kitchen Cotton, Peaches n Cream, Bernat's Handicrafter. 

Jewelry Pliers... They are great to have on hand when weaving in ends of cotton yarn, as cotton can sometimes be difficult to pull a needle through. Simply grab your needle with the jewelry pliers instead of your fingers, and pull gently so as not to break a needle.

Time Spent:
     Each coaster works up in just under 15 minutes, so under an hour for a set of four.

Measurements:
     4.5" Across Legs of Hexagon

Gauge:
     3" Diameter After Round 3.

Abbreviations:
     - SC - Single Crochet
     - HDC - Half Double Crochet

Pattern Notes:
     Seam in Rounds 1 through 3 is split to keep it straight. First stitch is worked to the left of the beginning chain, and the "last" stitch is worked to the right of the beginning chain.

Join to the first stitch, not beginning chain. Beginning chain does not count as a stitch.

To change yarn colors, I joined as normal, then I pulled the new color through the loop on the hook, and pulled both tails tight to hide the original loop that was on the hook. The change is seamless. Feel free to change in last step of join if more comfortable in that manner.
