How do you crochet a coaster?
These are really easy to make.
I’ve called them an advanced beginner project as you need to know more than the standard Granny square of chains, Double crochet and Slip stitch.
You will need to know how to:
- Make a Magic Ring
- Half Double Crochet (HDC)
- Slip Stitch
- Change colour
The work on the very basic principle of how to crochet a circle.
This pattern is included in the My Parents Blog hop running between the 8th and 27th April, with Joy From Anvis Granny

How long does it take to crochet a coaster?
These coasters are quick to make.
They take between 30 minutes to an hour to make, depending on how quick you are.
Yarn choice for a crochet coaster
The key to these coasters and the finished look they have is down to the yarn choice.
These use a 100% cotton yarn.
Cotton yarn is key, as it’s hard wearing and doesn’t stretch.
I used Scheepjes Catona, as it’s a 4ply weight yarn, and comes in loads of colours.
Can you make these coasters in acrylic yarn?
You could…… BUT, the yarn will stretch, and you’ve got to be really careful with heat and acrylic yarn as it can start to melt.
My advice would be no – do not make these coasters (or anything that may come into contact with heat) with an acrylic yarn.
Why did I design these crochet coasters?
Theres a story behind these great crochet coasters, we’ve been thinking about buying a coffee table for a quite a while, and then on a little trip to IKEA (to get something completely different – anyone else do that?), Mr OTH bought a coffee table.
A cheap one, just to see if we actually like it and we use it, before we go and spend a small fortune getting one made to match my desk and dining room table.
We put on these great coasters we were given for Christmas, from our trip to Australia, and as soon as you picked up your glass, the coaster stuck to the bottom, and then landed with a big thud, almost breaking.
I walked into the room, and Mr OTH says, I don’t suppose you any crochet coasters, or could make some for us, and explained the whole scenario above.
Well, would you actually believe it, I did have some coasters!
Right on queue, I said “Actually, I do”
