Boho Style Crochet Coaster
The square design and textured crochet pattern paired with the fringe make for a fun project. Make an entire set of four in an afternoon. These work up so quickly.
What is Boho Style?
Generally, “boho” is a slang term for the the dress style of hippies and vintage fashion. Often the element of fringe is included in the look. However, the modern boho chic appearance, which became popular in the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s, has a bit more of a classic and vintage look to the pieces.
Quick and Easy Crochet Pattern
If you are a beginner or have been crocheting a while, this pattern works up very quick and is easy too. Actually, it takes me longer to add the fringe than it does to crochet the coaster portion.
Perfect gifts for family and friends. Additionally, they are a great pattern for craft fairs.
SC and DC Same Stitch
This lovely texture in this pattern comes from the SC and DC stitches. Making something small like this is a great way to learn something new and practice. The stitch is lovely for so many patterns; blankets, shawls, cowls, washcloths, or even hand towels. Enjoy creating once you learn this easy stitch.
The stitch is a combination of two of the most basic crochet stitches: the single crochet and double crochet. The texture is created by alternating the stitches across each row; single and double, single and double, and so on.

Ribbed Crochet Mug Rug Coaster
This ribbed crochet mug rug coaster is so fun to make. Use up your yarn scraps and create these pretty little squares. Stylish home decor.
They are all quick and simple to make. A wonderful way to use up your yarn stash. I like to use cotton yarn for these because it soaks up the condensation the best. It washes up well too.
Directions: Textured Mug Rug Coaster Crochet
Gauge is not super critical for this crochet pattern. However, there are approximately 13 stitches per 4 inches.
The size of this square coaster is approximately 5 1/2 inches X 5 1/2 inches without the fringe. With the addition of the fringe, add 2 inches to the length on both sides. I trimmed my fringe to 2 inches.
Blue Jeans Lily Sugar ‘N Cream Cotton yarn. Each coaster uses approximately 100 yards including the fringe. If you are not able to find this yarn locally, it is available here.
Size H Crochet Hook
CH = Chain
DC = Double Crochet
SC = Single Crochet
SK = Skip
ST = Stitch
STs = Stitches
I used the Chainless Foundation Single Crochet for this crochet pattern If you are not familiar with this technique, I have provided the links to that video below the pattern.
This pattern can be started with the usual chain stitch. If you prefer to use this method yet, you certainly can. Rather than starting with 18 stitches, begin with 20 and work the first stitches in the 4th chain from the hook.
While, I have made this using the chain stitch, I used the back bump. This way, there is less stretching and pulling when the fringe is added. It keeps the beginning row snug. if you are a new crocheter, I have photos below showing where the back bump is.
18 Chainless Foundation Single Crochet Stitches
CH 2, SC and DC into the second ST from the hook. [CH 1, SK 1, SC and DC into the next ST]. Repeat across between [ ]. End with SC and DC in the last ST. Turn
CH 2, in the first SC from the row before, complete a SC and DC. [CH 1, SK 1, SC and DC in the next ST]. Repeat across between the [ ]. End with a SC and DC in the last SC ST. Turn (In essence, each SC and DC is worked in the previous row SC ST).
Rows 3 – 14
Repeat row 2
Weave in yarn ends and cut off excess yarn.
Adding Fringe to the Mug Rug
To create the fringe, cut 6-inch pieces of yarn. You will need 3 pieces of yarn for each fringe. Add one fringe on each corner stitch and every other stitch between.
Once the fringe is added, I trimmed it to approximately 2 inches.
To attach the fringe, use your hook to push through the foundation chain two loops.
Fold the yarn in half and loop the middle onto the hook and pull through. Bring the strands of yarn through the loop and pull snug.
