Inspiration for My Christmas Crochet Coaster Pattern

I love this time of year with the christmas tree, candles, crochet blankets and comfy chairs. I chose some hygge inspired colors from my stash – dark grey, sage green, light pink, red and a glitter white yarn to make these cute coasters. You may prefer more traditional holiday colors for your home decor.

Instructions include details to make these holiday crochet coasters in different colors or in a single color.

You will finish with a vintage inspired crochet lace edging in a lighter weight yarn for a pretty pop of color.

Why not add some Christmas granny bunting for a festive touch!

How Big should Crochet Coasters Be?

It is a personal preference, but most coasters are between 4 to 6 inches in size. You want it big enough to place a mug or glass on, if displaying on a coffee table. It is easy to make your coaster larger or smaller by adding or subtracting rounds.

Best Yarn for Crochet Coasters

I recommend Cotton Yarn for best results. Cotton is durable and easy to wash and dry, and also holds its shape well. It also absorbs spills and any dampness and can manage high temperatures. I used an aran cotton yarn for my coasters which I purchased from Woolly Castle

You will only need small amounts of yarn. Acrylic yarn is not recommended for coasters.
