Jack O’Lantern Coaster Crochet Pattern
I love a good functional project and this Jack O’Lantern coaster crochet pattern is a great way to add some fun seasonal decor and spook factor to your home.
It’s double sided for extra durability and absorbancy and the extra thickness helps the coaster to lie flat without the need for blocking. It’s also a great practice piece if you are new to colour changes and want to explore this kind of colourwork.
The addition of the border adds interest and an extra pop of colour. I opted to use dark green for mine but you can use any colour that you like.

The pattern is written using US terminology and measures approximately 4″ x 4″ (10cm x 10cm) when using the materials listed.
The ch 1 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch.
You will be working in rows of single crochet from the bottom up.
The pattern is written as: # of single crochet stitches (colour abbreviation), example: 9 sc (o) means 9 sc in the colour orange.
Colour changes take place in the last yarn over of the previous stitch. See this post for reference: How to Change Colours in Amigurumi.
