Crochet Pattern: Cool Coasters 1

By Erin Burger – 28 Comments

These adorable coasters are so easy to make up! The coasters featured in the photos are made of one solid color, but they would also look great in multiple colors, or with Round 4 done in an alternate complimentary color. These would also be a great Christmas gift (or kids Christmas project) in Red, Green and White!

    Hi, In the cool coasters 1 pattern, in the first round when you reach ch-4: 12dc, are you supposed to double crochet 12 more after you reach the ch-4? I got a little confused there.


    • Rachel says:

      Hi Karen, the numbers after the colon is the stitch count for the round. So when you’re done the round you will have 12 double crochets. You don’t have to make another 12 double crochet.

    I made this pattern in Sinfonia in about 20 minutes. I added glass beads at the outer edge of each shell. It came out great! Thanks for a simple, fun but elegant pattern.

  17. Linda says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this pattern…very kind of you. 🙂 The coasters are adorable!

  18. Barbe says:

    Thank you so much for sharing the pattern. I am so in need of coasters when I get with my friends for crochet/knitting nights. I had such a hard time finding something I liked in the stores at a reasonable price. Now I can make them in the colors I want. Thanks again; will be adding these to my decorating blog with a link back here. : )

  19. Jean says:

    I use this pattern as my standard. They make great gifts, work up quickly and are very absorbant when you make them with 4 ply 100% cotton.

  20. Tracy says:

    Mine seems to be curling up on the edges. Are they suppose to do that?

  21. fleurdelis says:

    I have made close to 50+ coasters since you first posted the pattern. They make nice hostess gifts. I made a few in holiday colors for friends that like to decorate for the holidays or seasons. I like to use any of the kitchen cottons like Sugar ‘n Cream by Lily. Aunt Lydia also makes the same thing. Sometimes you can find red and green with silver or gold threads woven through the yarn. I have made Victorian candy cane covers with this yarn. I love this website!

  22. Ann says:

    These are amazing, easy and quick. Made them in craft cotton and are thick enough to absorb moisture and not leave marks on the furniture. Will make a few sets for gifts. Thanks for the pattern!

  23. Becca says:

    Is this the american lingo? As im from england i only know out way of crochet, so if i was to start this would it look ok?? i can read it fine, i just hope it turns out ok… Xx

  24. Becca says:

    Thanks – i just completed it using the english terms and it looks more of less the same! The detail within is slightly different however the overall shape is the same! Thanks! I must learn to crochet the american way really! Lol xx
