What Yarn should I use for Crochet Coasters?
I recommend Cotton Yarn for coasters. 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 a dk weight cotton yarn and a 4mm crochet hook for my coasters. The tight textured stitch pattern creates a sturdy coaster. You could also use a cotton worsted weight yarn and a 5mm hook. You will only need small amounts of scrap yarn! Acrylic yarn is not recommended for coasters.
What Size is Recommended for a Square Crochet Coaster?
About 5 inches is a perfect size for a square coaster, the right size to lay a cup or a glass on. You could also make the coaster bigger and crochet some placemats with the funky stripe pattern. Just crochet a foundation chain the width you want your mat (using a multiple of 2 + 1) and crochet rows until you have a size that you are happy with.
How do you Crochet a Square Coaster?
You can make a square coaster by chaining a foundation chain the size you require and work in rows of single crochet or half double crochet until you have a square shape – all sides are equal. You could also make a granny square for a coaster, or any crochet square pattern will work beautifully.
The stitch pattern I have used for my coasters is slightly textured but is very easy and quick to make for a beginner! You can make your coaster in a single colour like the blue sample pictured, or in stripes changing color every row.

You can make some small pieces of fringing if you wish to add a boho finish to your coaster! Cut lengths of yarn approximately 2-3in [5-7cm]. Make fringes using 3 strands of yarn and fold in half to make each fringe 6 strands. Attach one fringe to each corner of the coaster. Trim if needed.
