I love making coasters when I need a break from amigurumi – they’re quick, easy and cute! You can make them as simple or as intricate as you like and with endless colour combinations, they never get boring.

How to Crochet a Coaster

There are several ways to crochet a coaster.

  • In the round: working in a continuous spiral or joined rounds to create a circle.
  • In rows: working back and forth in rows starting with a foundation chain to create a square.

In addition to these, there are uniquely shaped coasters such as: animals, flowers, household objects or other motifs, which may have a different construction.

Granny squares or C2C squares (corner to corner) also make wonderful coasters.

Why Should You Crochet Coasters

There are many benefits to crocheting coasters whether you’re a beginner or a more advanced crocheter.

  • Personalisation. Making your own coasters allows you to choose patterns and colours that compliment your home and style.
  • Unique gifts. Handmade coasters make a thoughtful gift that can be tailored to suit the recipient’s tastes.
  • Beginner friendly. Crochet coasters are the perfect bite sized project for learning and practicing new crochet stitches and techniques.
  • Stash busting. Crochet coasters are small projects which makes them perfect for using up leftover yarn.
  • Protect your furniture. The main function of a coaster is to protect your furniture from spills and stains. Crochet coasters are just as effective as store-bought coasters.
  • Eco-friendly. Making your own coasters allows you to choose eco-friendly materials.

Supplies You’ll Need to Make Crochet Coasters

  • Yarn
  • Crochet hook
  • Notions (stitch marker, yarn needle, scissors, etc)

Always check your pattern before getting started for specific requirements.

What is the Best Yarn for Crochet Coasters

When choosing yarn, it’s important to take into consideration how the coaster will be used.

Cotton yarn is generally best for crochet coasters as it’s durable, absorbent, holds up well to heat and is easy to wash.

Another popular option is acrylic yarn. However, acrylic doesn’t stand up to higher temperatures so is best suited for cold or room temperature drinks.
