Ten Free Patterns for Crochet Coasters

I've been making crochet coasters for a short while. They are (usually) very easy and quick to make and very satisfying in that you can soon build up a collection of pretty coasters which looks really impressive! 😀

Here are 10 Free Patterns For Crochet Coasters I have used to make coasters, or that are on my list to make very soon.

1: Make a Set of Five Ombre Crocheted Coasters

By Marinke Slump
This is a great coaster tutorial and pattern.
Easy and quick and using surface slip stitches to add to the pattern.
You can find the free pattern here:
Make a Set of Five Gorgeous Ombre Crocheted Coasters

I've made 3 lots of these so far. I didn't quite stick to the ombre idea (making each coaster slip stitch decoration in a colour which shades in with the previous one), but I like them anyway :)
The first set was a gift:
Set of Ombre Coasters in Dark Heather, with Lilac and White Trim
And the other two sets are now on Etsy:
Set of 6 coasters in beautiful burgundy
Set of 6 attractive coasters in light grey cotton

2: The Citrus Coaster Pattern, by Dona Knits.

This was the first coaster pattern I tried and I think it's still my favourite for making coaster only sets.
A lovely clean and neat pattern that is easy to do and looks elegant.
This pattern is a free Ravelry download. So, members of Ravelry can find it here:
Citrus Coaster by Dona Knits

I've made quite a few of these in light purple and will definitely make more in other colours (when I get the time!).
Here's the link to them in our Etsy Shop:
Set of 6 Coasters in Light Purple

3: Lacy Coaster by Claire from Crochet Leaf

I love this coaster pattern! (and the free doily pattern too).
It's easy to follow, well-explained, and quick to do. And you can easily make a lovely  set of lacy coasters which make you look like a crochet expert!
You can find the free coaster pattern here:

Here's some doily and coaster sets that I have made from Claire's lovely patterns.
You can find sets of them on our Etsy site here:

4: Free crochet pattern: Roller Coasters

 by Kirsten Ballering
Is a nice, quick and simple coaster pattern which adds surface slip stitch colours to make the 'roller coaster' and this works great!

(No pictures from me here, because I am still to make these! 😁 )

5: Snowflake Cotton Coaster by Tatsiana Kupryianchyk 

This is a tutorial on how to do surface crochet, together with a free pattern for a unique coaster design in Tatsiana's innovative style. And, despite looking complicated, it is actually quick and easy to do!
Just the job!

It certainly looks worth doing and enjoyable to do - a pretty flower theme in Christmas colours.

Another coasters pattern on my 'to-make-for-Christmas' list.
They certainly look easy and fun to make. And just right for Christmas.

8: Flower Potholders by Jennifer Martin

As you can see, this is really a free pattern to make some very unique potholders, but I've made coasters from this pattern and I think they look great.
(You just end on an earlier row).
You can find the free pattern here (plus a link to some helpful pictures):
This is a Free Ravelry Download for the Flower Potholder Pattern

 These are the coasters I made from the Flower Potholders Pattern.

I've partnered them up with a doily, made using the Free Doily Pattern from Crochet Leaf.
And here is the doily and coasters set I made, now in our Etsy shop:

9: Spring Blooms Coaster by Heather J Anderson

Another free coaster pattern on my to-make list. I've seen some lovely coasters made from this one.
This pattern is published in The Unraveled Mitten.
It is a pretty, floral theme with clear instructions for the cluster design used, so is perfectly fine for all crochet levels.
Here is the free pattern link:

10: Coaster - Summer Boaters by Amy Le Pelley

Another very attractive coaster pattern which uses surface slip stitches to trim and has a pretty fluted edge.
A must make for my coaster list!
