How to Crochet a Coaster

Crocheting a coaster is a simple and easy project for beginners or anyone looking for a quick project.

If you have a spare moment in between appointments or at sporting events (swim meets for me!) you can make one of these easy coasters in no time.

Take a look below at the yarn and stitches you may need to know to crochet a coaster from this list.

Yarn for Crochet Coasters

When you choose a yarn for crocheting coasters, you will want a fiber that is durable to heat as well as easy to wash. If you use an acrylic yarn to make a coaster, it may melt due to the heat of the cup or mug.

The two best choices in my opinion are cotton or a cotton blend yarn.

Favorite Cotton Yarn

Some of my favorites yarn brands to use are Lily’s Sugar n’ Cream, 24/7 Cotton and Maker Home Dec yarn. The first two yarns are both a worsted weight yarn and the last is a bulky 5 weight yarn.

Note: To get the best results when crocheting these coasters, follow along with the suggested crochet hook size on the yarn package or as listed in the pattern.

If you find another cotton yarn you prefer to make coasters with, then that will work just as well too. The best yarn is the one you enjoy using for making coasters.

All Free Crochet Coaster Patterns like shown can be found below.

Stitches and Techniques

Most of the coaster patterns use basic crochet stitches and crochet skills. But there will be a few of these free crochet patterns that will use other techniques too.

Get your crochet hook ready, then explore some of the most common crochet stitches and techniques below used in crochet coasters.

  1. Single Crochet(sc): Single crochet stitches are used quite a bit in crochet coaster patterns since they are a small, tighter stitch. This crochet stitch makes for a crochet coaster that is clean and modern looking, plus easy to crochet too!
  2. Half Double Crochet (hdc): Half double crochet stitches are easy to learn and a great beginner stitch to know. They will be used quite a bit in some of these coaster patterns, so be sure to touch up your skills with this stitch.
  3. Double Crochet (dc): Double crochet stitches are a common stitch used in crochet pattern designs. They are a taller stitch than the half double crochet and also easy to stitch up.
  4. Magic Ring (Magic Circle): The magic ring is a technique used to start projects in the round, using an adjustable loop to make a hole free coaster.

Now that we’ve learned about the yarn and stitches you can expect to in these coaster crochet patterns, let’s take a look at why you should crochet one too!
