I’ve been wanting to make some cute spiral boho crochet coasters for the longest time. I actually had this idea in my head for a while, so I’m glad that they turned out exactly how I imagined.
The great thing about these coasters is that there so versatile, you can literally make them with any of the basic crochet stitches. Plus, imagine them in different cotton colors?! I chose to go with neutral, but i’m thinking i’m going to have to make them in pink.
As you probably know, I love the color pink. My blog is filled with different hues of pink. What’s your favorite color?
Yarn and Stitch Choice
So let’s get into why I chose cotton yarn and why I chose the double crochet stitch. I chose cotton yarn, because when heat is applied it won’t melt the cotton. I tray to stay away from acrylic yarns when making coasters, hot-pads, or potholders because acrylic yarn will melt.
Cotton yarns are always my preferred yarns when making kitchen items. Recently, I made a modern double thick crochet potholder with Lion Brand 24/7 cotton. So cotton is definitely my favorite to work with!
The stitch I chose for this pattern is double crochet. I chose double crochet because I wanted something easy and fast. Double crochet brings a lot of height to a project. So I thought it was the perfect choice! However, you can also choose to do single crochet or half double crochet.

Round 1: 1dc in 3rd ch from hook (counts as first dc), make an additional 11 dc in the same ch (12)
Do not slip stitch
Round 2: 2 dc in first stitch from previous round (place stitch marker ). Continue to do 2 dc in each stitch around (24)
Round 3: *1 dc in first stitch from previous round (this is where your stitch marker should be from the last round), 2dc in next stitch* repeat from * all around. (36)
Round 4: *1 dc in next 2 stitches from previous round, 2 dc in next stitch* repeat from * all around. (48)
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Part 2: Creating Fringe
Cut a 2 ½ inch piece of yarn. You will need a total of 48 yarn pieces.
Grab a small crochet hook and insert your crochet hook into the top stitch of the coaster.
Grab the yarn that you cut and insert it through the crochet hook, as well as the stitch.
Pull the yarn through the stitch using your hook.
Using your fingers, grab the two loose ends and pull it through the loop.
Continue to do this all the way around the coaster. Once this is completed, cut and comb the pieces so there all even.
Combing the yarn pieces out, will give you that fringe boho look. You can also leave it the way it is. I think it looks cute both ways!I hope you enjoyed making this boho spiral crochet coaster.
