Stargate Coaster

I'm back in blogging action!

Now, I went over my Stargate Coaster design and edited it so that it's clearer to understand.

Stargate: SG-1 (Left) Atlantis (Middle) Universe (Right)

Note: I know that the gates are supposed to have 9 chevrons, but it takes 7 for a "normal" dialing sequence, so I made 7 chevrons, because I always hear Walter in my head saying "Chevron seven locked!"

Now, on with the pattern!


Finished Size:
5” diameter
Gauge:
Rows 1-7 = 3 ¼ ” diameter
Materials:
  • H hook (or size to obtain gauge)
  • Yarn Needle
  • 14 Stitch Markers
All yarns used are worsted weight:
  • Color A = 1 skein Caron Simply Soft: Light Country Blue (inside)
  • Color B = 1 skein Naturally Caron Country: Charcoal (outer ring)
  • Color C = 1 skein Red Heart Soft Yarn: Turquoise (chevrons)

This is what I used in the pattern, but you can use any worsted weight scrap yarn, you just need:
  1. a light blue for the inside “puddle”
  2. a dark gray or charcoal for the outer ring
  3. and a vibrant blue/turquoise (Stargate Atlantis)
    • a bright orange (Stargate SG-1)
    • or a white (Stargate Universe) for the chevrons.


This piece is done in the round without turning, working in the RS each row.
Row 1:  Ch 2, 7 sc in second ch from hook.  Sl st to first sc. (7 sts)

Row 2:  Ch 1, 2 sc in each st. Sl st to first sc. (14 sts)

Row 3:  Ch 1, [1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] 7 times.  Sl st to first sc. (21 sts)

Row 4:  Ch 1, 1 sc in first st, 2 sc in next st [1 sc in next two sts, 2 sc in next st] 6 times, sc in last st.  Sl st to first sc. (28 sts)

Row 5:  Ch 1, [1 sc in next three sts, 2 sc in next st] 7 times.  Sl st to first sc. (35 sts)

Row 6:  Ch 1, 1 sc in first two sts, 2 sc in next st [1 sc in next four sts, 2 sc in next st] 6 times, sc in last two sts.  Sl st to first sc. (42 sts)

Row 7:  Ch 1, [1 sc in next five sts, 2 sc in next st] 7 times.  Sl st to first sc. (49 sts)

Row 8:  Ch 1, 1 sc in first three sts, 2 sc in next st [1 sc in next six sts, 2 sc in next st] 6 times, sc in last three sts.  Change to Color B during the last st, sl st to first sc. (56 sts)

Row 9:  Working now with Color B: Ch 1, [1 sc in next seven sts, 2 sc in next st] 7 times.  Sl st to first sc. (63 sts)

Row 10:  Ch 1, 1 sc in first four sts, 2 sc in next st [1 sc in next eight sts, 2 sc in next st] 6 times, sc in last four sts.  Sl st to first sc. (70 sts)

Looks like this!


Row 11:

Place stitch markers in the
5th, 7th,
15th, 17th,
25th, 27th,
35th, 37th,
45th, 47th,
55th, 57th,
65th, and 67th sts.
1 sc in first four sts, change to Color C, skp first stitch marker, spike st below next st, ch 1, spike st in same st, change to Color B, skip second stitch marker, [1 sc in next two sts, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next four sts, change to Color C, skip first stitch marker, spike st below next st, ch 1, spike st in same st, change to Color B, skip second st marker] 6 times, 1 sc in next two sts, 2 sc in last st.


Sl st to join, fasten off.  Weave in the ends and voilá!  It’s a stargate!
