Crochet Coasters for Beginners
My latest free crochet pattern is a simple crochet coaster. These crochet coasters are perfect for beginners as they work up quickly and include a guided video tutorial. They are also made entirely out of single crochets using the spiral technique.
It’s a really simple technique where you work in the round using only single crochet. I love this technique so much because it creates a beautiful finish. Sometimes when you crochet in the round using the regular method you can see very clearly where you joined the round and so with this method it doesn’t.
Furthermore, this crochet coaster also has a crab stitch border. The crab stitch border is made by making a single crochet backward. It might sound a little confusing, but I promise you it’s not.
It’s super simple and one of the easiest crochet borders to make!
Crochet Coasters for Your Home
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 look cute in any space.
You can also make these crochet coasters as gifts. You can make a set of four and tie it up with some twine and add a cute homemade crochet gift tag.
Easy Crochet Coaster + Simple Stitches
As mentioned earlier, these easy crochet coasters are made in a 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. You only need one stitch marker and this will be placed at the beginning and end of each round.
The border is made using the crab stitch, which is just working a single crochet in the reverse order of the row. So instead of yarning over forwards, you’re are going to yarn over backwards.
The Yarn You’ll Use for This Easy Crochet Coaster Pattern
I chose to work with Ganxxet’s linen yarn for this crochet pattern. It’s a lightweight number 3 yarn that’s very soft and almost resembles cotton. I chose to work in the color natural, but they have a variety of colors available.
I loved working with this yarn and highly recommend it, one cone will make about 4 coasters. If you can’t get a hold of this yarn, another great option would be cotton yarn. Any cotton yarn will do for this project, but I love Lion Brand’s 24/7 cotton yarn and WeCrochet Dishie cotton yarn.
Lily Sugar N’ Cream yarn would also make a great substitute for the yarn used in the pattern.
I do recommend a natural fiber for this pattern as synthetic yarn, like acrylic, could possibly melt if something hot is put on it.
Add a Matching Crochet Placemat
If you like making this pattern, you might also like to make a matching crochet placemat. This is what I did for my set of coasters and it looks so cute when eating dinner at night.
You could stick with one color or you can totally make these in different colors. Either way, it’ll look so cute and cozy!

Reverse Single Crochet Border Tutorial
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. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
Voila! You’re done. I hope you enjoyed making these adorable crochet circle coasters.
