Goblet Slippers Pattern

COASTERS—to slip on the foot of a goblet; to absorb condensed moisture and prevent rings on the table. Made in two layers—the top is split to receive the glass foot.

MATERIALS: 1 Ball Enterprise Yarn will make four to five goblet slippers in a single color.
An interesting set made in colors to match the assorted Pastel colors of luncheon dishes is suggested in the instructions. With the petals in more vivid shades of Red, Blue, Green and Gold on a White base, the goblets will match popular Fiesta ware. A ball of each of the colors will make several sets of slippers.

TOP PETALS: Make 6 of each color. Ch 7, making first st extra long, sk first st, sc in next 2, hdc in next 2, 2 dc in next, 9 dc in end st. Work on opposite side of ch, make 2 dc in next st, hdc in next 2, sc in next 2. Cut yarn 2 in. from work, insert hook in first sc, catch yarn through all loops on hook, pulling tight. Fasten off on back of each petal.

BASE: Make one in each color. Ch 5, sl st to form a ring. Ch 1, 8 sc in ring. Work following rows in back loops of sts as follows: Sl st in first sc, ch 3, 2 dc in same st, (3 dc in next sc) 7 times, sl st in 3-ch, ch 1, sc in same st, (sc in next dc, 2 sc in next) repeat around (36 sc, counting first 1-ch). Sl st in 1-ch, * (3 dc, 3 tr and 3 dc) in back loop of next third sc, sc in back loop of next third sc. Repeat from * 5 times. Turn, place one petal (see color arrangement below) right side up on last shell made, insert hook through back loop of first of 9 dc in end of petal and through both loops of last dc on base, catch yarn and pull through all loops on hook (a sl st). (* Ch 1, sl st through back loop of next dc on petal and on base) 8 times. Join next 5 petals in same manner. Tack tips of petals together in groups of three.

ARRANGEMENT OF COLORS: This suggested color layout will make each slipper different—serve as identification if goblets are removed from the table to be refilled. Each set will use the same amount of yarn. A ball each of the 4 colors will make 3 complete sets. Place petals around each slipper in following order: Ivory base—Blue, Green, Ivory, Tearose, Green, Ivory. Blue base—Blue, Ivory, Green, Tearose, Ivory, Green. Green base—Blue, Tearose, Green, Blue, Tearose, Ivory. Tearose base—Blue, Green, Tearose, Blue, Ivory, Tearose.
Many other color layouts may appeal to you—try them; you'll like the way these coasters will save the table. A set of plain goblets with slippers on, in a fancy box, will make an attractive gift, or a low cost bazaar item.
