40+ Quick and Easy Free Crochet Coaster Patterns

Crochet coasters are fun projects that can add a handmade touch to home decor. They are also great for using up leftover yarn and practicing new stitches.

For the experienced crocheter, it may be a nice challenge to create their own coaster pattern. However, with the many free crochet coaster patterns below, there is no lack of inspiration here!

To knit some coasters, check out our free knitted coasters page to find creative patterns to explore.

Materials Needed to Crochet Coasters 

  • Yarn: Cotton yarn is preferred since it is durable and absorbent. However, it is possible to use any yarn on hand.
  • Crochet Hook: Be sure to use a hook size appropriate for the yarn being used. For cotton yarn, a size H/8 or G/6 hook is most often used.
  • Scissors: These will be used for cutting the yarn.
  • Tapestry Needle: Use this to weave in the ends of the yarn.

The free crochet coasters below include both traditional square and simple circles along with a nice selection of fun coasters in various shapes and designs such as cats, chickens, sunbursts, and donuts, to name just a few. Many of these are easy crochet coasters to make.

Scroll down to see the crochet coasters made for special holidays like the two Christmas tree crochet patterns, the snowman face pattern, Valentine hearts simple pattern, shamrocks, and Thanksgiving turkeys!

My two favorites are the turkey coasters for Thanksgiving and the beautiful crochet coasters pattern of sunbursts to brighten up the home. The citrus coasters are so fun, too!

Tips for Success

There are several things to keep in mind when crocheting coasters that will make the finished project look professional.

As mentioned before, yarn choice is important. Cotton yarn is best for coasters since it absorbs moisture and is machine washable, as well as being very durable.

The crocheter will want to block the finished coasters to ensure that they lie flat. The easiest way to do this is to dampen the coasters with water and pin them to a flat surface to dry.

Without blocking, the coasters tend to curl up and won’t lie flat to do their job.

Gauge is not critical for coasters, which makes them great for beginners. Do try to keep the stitches even for a neat appearance.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with different shapes, sizes, and stitch patterns, which is easy with the plethora of crochet patterns below.

Scroll down the page and explore the varied crochet coaster patterns below. You are sure to find one you just have to try out!
