I’ve been on a roll lately crocheting things in the spiral! It’s this new crochet technique that I learned when I was searching how to crochet in the round. Today’s pattern is quick to make + uses only single crochet stitches!
Easy Crochet Spiral Coasters
Lately, I’ve been loving the crochet technique of working in the spiral. I found out about this technique a couple of years ago, as I was having a hard time crocheting a circle in the round. So crocheting a spiral for different crochet designs has been a lifesaver!
You can literally make anything with a crochet spiral, like these Crochet Spiral Hot Pads. Today’s design inspiration came from me simply wanting some new coasters for my coffee table. I also bought some new yarn and really wanted to try it out. So I thought “why not,” and that’s how these boho-inspired crochet spiral coasters came about on a Sunday afternoon.
Another thing that I love about these crochet round coasters is that they are quick and use basic stitches. All you need to know is how to single crochet, that’s it! Even the border is made out of single crochet, except you’re doing reverse single crochet. But more on that later!
Crochet coasters perfect for any room in the house!
I love creating crochet patterns that can be used in different rooms of the house. So whether it’s your coffee table in the living room or your nightstand in your bedroom, these coasters will fit just about anywhere. They will also keep your table free of stains and glass rim marks.
You can also make these crochet coasters as gifts. You can make a set of four and tie it up with some twine. Add a cute mug or recipe drink cards. Either way, homemade gifts are the best. They also would be perfect for markets, if that’s your thing. You can talk about the cool spiral crochet technique and how you choose the perfect yarn + color for these round coasters.
Make crochet spiral coasters in every color
I choose to keep these easy crochet spiral coasters simple and picked a natural color. I was also going for a boho-inspired theme. But you can totally mix it up and use multiple colors. You can even crochet one row with one color and then switch colors for the next row. Or maybe add a different color border. It’s totally up to you!
Get creative and make crochet placemats!
Another cool thing you can do with this pattern is make matching crochet placemats. That’s right, you can totally add additional rows to the original coaster pattern to make placemats. As you can see in the photo above, I added a series of rows to create a small matching boho crochet placemat.

Simple construction + easy stitches
As mentioned previously, these easy crochet coasters are made in the spiral using only single crochet stitches. So instead of joining each round with a slip stitch, you’re going to work straight through the next round. The best way to not get lost with this pattern is to have a handy dandy stitch marker nearby. You only need one stitch marker and this will be placed at the beginning/end of each round.
By doing this, it ensures that you have the right amount of stitches per round. The border is made using reverse single crochet. So you’re basically going to make a single crochet backwards, this is also known as the crab stitch. Instead of yarning over forwards, you’re are going to yarn over backwards. And if that doesn’t sound confusing (I totally thought it did!) there will be a video tutorial provided to help you get through this part.
Yarn Choice + Substitution
What’s great about this easy crochet spiral coaster pattern is that a variety of yarn will work for this project. I chose to work with Ganxxet linen yarn line. It’s a really pretty lightweight number 3 yarn that’s made from 100% linen. Plus, you only need 1 cone to make 4 spiral coasters.
This is my first time working with linen yarn and I was surprised how my hook just glided through the stitches. I thought it was going to be like twine, but not at all. Linen yarn is a dream to work with and it’s soft. So it makes it a lot easier on your hands when crocheting.
Natural fiber yarn is best for these crochet spiral coasters
Any yarn will work for this project, but I highly recommend using natural fiber yarn. I try not to use acrylic when making home decor crochet projects because acrylic yarn can melt. And if you’re anything like me, I just get freaked out by the thought of my hard work being melted. So natural fiber it is!
If you decide to go with a different type of yarn, I would highly recommend cotton yarn. There are loads of cotton yarn brands out there, check out this post HERE about some of my favorite cotton yarn brands. Lion Brand 24/7 mercerized cotton yarn is another good option for this project.

Crochet border construction
ch 1 (starting reverse single crochet border), insert hook into stitch 55, yarn over, pull through (2 loops left on hook), yarn over, and pull through last 2 loops.
Continue to repeat this step in each stitch all the way around the coaster. Once you’re back at the first stitch, take your hook out. Insert your hook into the chain 1 you made at the beginning of the border and the last loop of the first stitch. Yarn over and pull through.
This should keep the stitches (border) secure. Break yarn and weave in ends.
