Fallen Leaves Crochet Coaster Pattern

This Fallen Leaves crochet coaster pattern is the perfect Fall or Spring project. It’s quick and easy to make and great for stash busting.

About the Design

Leaves are such a classic and timeless motif perfect for anytime of year.

One of the biggest issues I had with this fallen leaves crochet coaster pattern was making the join as seamless as possible. This is where the chainless starting double crochet comes in.

If you’re not familiar with this technique, I definitely recommend taking the time to learn it. However, you can just substitute it with a regular starting chain if that’s what you prefer.

Yarn Choice

I highly recommend using cotton yarn for coasters as it’s durable, absorbent, holds up well to heat and is easy to wash.

I used Fiddlesticks Finch 10ply as that’s what’s available to me here in New Zealand and they had the best colours. However, any worsted weight cotton yarn should work.

Special Stitches

Chainless starting double crochet: Pull up your working loop to approximately the height of a double crochet stitch. Hold this loop firmly against your hook with your finger so that it can’t move. Yarn over by wrapping the working loop around your hook. Insert hook into the first stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop just as you would for a normal double crochet. Do not let go of the loop on your hook. Yarn over and pull through the first two loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through remaining two loops.

Picot: Ch 2, sc in 2nd ch from hook.
