Hey friends! I’m back with another FREE crochet pattern and this time it’s coasters! I received some beautiful yarn in the mail from KnitPicks and one was a bulky cotton. Yes, you read that correctly. BULKY COTTON. It’s soft and thick which makes a nice and sturdy coaster. Click here to check out this yarn for yourself. I am using the color Turmeric for this pattern.

I’m using a gorgeous Furls Crochet hook to make these coasters. This is their Streamline Swirl hook in the color Cafe. Click here to check them out. I love Furls hooks because they are ergonomic and comfortable for your hand and arm. I especially love the Streamline hook line because they are wooden, lightweight and affordable.

- I/9 5.50mm crochet hook
- Bulky (5) weight cotton yarn
- Measuring tape
- Tapestry needle
- Leather cord or other detail
- sc – single crochet
- ch – chain
- sl – slip
- st(s) – stitch(es)
You can make your coasters any size you want. I crocheted around mine 7 times which created a 4×4″ (10.1×10.1 cm) square.
Billow is a Bulky (5) weight cotton yarn. You can certainly use something thinner you already have, but keep in mind you will need to size down your hook and crochet more rounds to make it the right size.
The Moss Stitch = sc + ch 1. The sc is worked into the ch 1 spaces from the previous row.
Round 1: Start with a Magic Circle, then sc + ch 2 into the circle 4 times. Join with a sl st into the first sc.
Round 2: Working in the 1st ch 2 space/corner, (sc, ch 2, sc), ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in the 2nd corner, ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in the 3rd corner, ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in the 4th corner, ch 1, do not join.
Round 3: Working in the 1st ch 2 space/corner, (sc, ch 2, sc), ch 1, sc in the ch 1 space, ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in the 2nd corner, ch 1, sc in the ch 1 space, ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in the 3rd corner, ch 1, sc in the ch 1 space, ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in the 4th corner, ch 1, sc in the ch 1 space, ch 1, do not join.
At this point you will continue around in this pattern with moss stitch on the sides and (sc, ch 2, sc) in each corner until your coaster is as large as you like. I made mine a 4×4″ square which was 7 rounds.
When you get to the end of your last row, sl st in the corner ch 2 space, cut yarn and weave in all ends.
I added a leather tie to the corner for a unique touch, but the options are endless! You could add a logo tag, chain a loop before you cut your yarn, etc.
