Easy crochet coasters are a great beginner project for someone new to crochet. Whether you are a new crocheter or not though, these also make great gifts. Handmade gifts are so treasured because the recipient knows how much effort and love you put into making their gift. When it is warm, a pretty coaster comes in handy to save your furniture from table rings.

Cotton Yarn is Recommended
These pretty colored coasters are made from two skeins of cotton yarn. While you can use an acrylic yarn, I think that the cotton yarn would work much better at absorbing the moisture from your drink.

Gift Giving Idea
I mentioned how nice this would be as a gift. If you are like me, you would love to get a few coasters with a new serving picture with a couple of glasses, or a glass, or cup, or another type of beverage container. It would make nice teacher, bus driver, or even a men’s gift. Men are often hard for me to buy for and I think that even they would like this gift especially if you knew their favorite colors and used that to make these coasters.
If you plan on making only one – which is hard to stop at 🙂 you do not use much of the skein of yarn. I used 2 skeins of yarn and still have a bit left over that I think I can get one more coaster out of. This pattern and 2 skeins of yarn made 12 crochet coasters. Very budget friendly project.
Round 1: CH 1, Work 12 HDC in the circle. Join with SL ST to the top of the first HDC.
Round 2: CH 1, Work 1 HDC in same ST as CH 1. Work 2 HDC in each ST around. Join to the first HDC with SL ST.
Round 3: CH 1, Work 1 HDC in first ST. *Work 1 HDC in next ST. Work 2 HDC in next ST.* Repeat from * to * around ending with a HDC in the first ST. SL ST into the first HDC.
Round 4: CH 1, Work 1 HDC in first ST. *Work 1 HDC in next 2 ST. Work 2 HDC in next ST.* Repeat from * to * around ending with a HDC in the first ST. SL ST into the first HDC.
Round 5: Work a SC all the way around in each ST ending with a SL ST into the first SC.
Finishing: make sure when cutting off yarn that you leave a long enough tail so you can use the yarn needle and weave in the ends. Make sure to weave in the yarn with the same color. When done, cut off the excess.
The crochet coasters that I made, the colors were changed for either row 4 or row 5. Here are some photos to help you see the difference.

These are quick to make. Our family just loves them. I just love the look of these on the table tops throughout the house.I already have my holiday colors picked out and waiting for me to get done with my current project. I want to make some of these in red and white or green and white…or maybe both. These would be so cute as a gift too. They work up so quickly.
