Crochet Coasters – Free Pattern


Crochet coasters are always a fun, quick and practical project to make. Whether they’re being added to a market table, given as a gift or simply made for yourself, coasters are easily customizable in colours for added personal touches. They also don’t have to be used as a traditional coaster. These projects can be used under plant pots to help protect your table tops from getting scratched.

With only 5 rounds and approximately 18 yards of worsted weight cotton yarn, these are great stash buster ideas as well. Learn how to make the Picot Points Coaster below…

– This pattern is written in US terms
– Gauge is not important for this pattern
– Beginning CH of each round counts as a stitch
– Special stitch tutorial is included within the pattern
– In this pattern, “cluster” refers to the set of 3 DC stitches in round 3 that are grouped together within one space
– Sometimes the beginning CH 1 can be difficult to see when you need to slip stitch into it after completing a round. You might find it helpful to place a stitch marker in the beginning CH 1 to mark its place
– Completed photos of each round can be found at the end of the pattern
