Frog Coaster Crochet Pattern

Add some colour to your home with this frog coaster crochet pattern. I’m still on a bit of a froggy kick after making my frog wall hanging pattern and thought it would be fun to make something similar but on a smaller scale.

Where the colours I used for my frog wall hanging were more muted, I chose to use bright colours for my coaster for a pop art vibe and the addition of the contrasting border frames that little froggy face nicely.

The coaster is double sided for extra durability and absorbancy and the extra thickness helps the coaster to lie flat without the need for blocking.

This frog coaster crochet pattern is a great practice piece if you are new to colour changes and want to explore this kind of colourwork. It’s also a good chance to have a play with embroidered features.

Here are my top 3 embroidery tips to get you started:

  • Use a sharp needle.
  • Use finer thread/yarn and build up definition through layering stitches (less is more).
  • Don’t pull your stitches too tight.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Using 4 ply yarn or embroidery floss, sew the eyes over R10 and R11, approximately 13 sts apart and 4 sts from each edge.

Using 3 strands of black embroidery floss, sew a long line for the mouth in between R7 and R8, beginning and ending 2 sts away from each eye.

Using a small amount of pink yarn, sew the cheeks next to each eye over a single st and going over each cheek twice.

Back (background colour)

R1: Ch 24, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across (23)

R2-23: Ch 1, turn. [Sc] x23 (23) 22 rows

Do not fasten off.


For the border, you will be changing colours between the background colour and green. The instructions below indicate when you need to change colour.

However, the st count doesn’t need to match mine exactly as long as you are crocheting evenly along all sides. The colour changes take place 1 st after and 1 st before that section of colour.

R24: Place front and back pieces right sides together with the front piece facing up, you will be working through both pieces.

Ch 1, 2 sc in corner st. 21 sc, 3 sc in corner, 15 sc – change to green in last st. 6 sc, 3 sc in corner, 21 sc, 3 sc in corner, 6 sc – change to yellow in last st, 15 sc. When you are back to where you started sc into the same st as starting st (96)

R25: Change to pink and sl st to first sc to join. Continue to sl st around the coaster (96)

Fasten off invisibly and weave in ends.
