Are you looking for round crochet coasters? These beautiful crochet round coasters are quick to work up and easy to make! All you need is some cotton yarn and a crochet hook.
These round crochet coasters would make perfect little crochet gifts that you can work up in under an hour. You can use up some leftover yarn and combine different colours, as long as it’s cotton and the same yarn weight it’s going to look great! The only thing with having more than one colour and switching from one to another colour is that you will need to weave in more ends. But the good news is that it’s really easy to hide all the ends inside the fluffy puff stitches!
How to Crochet Round Coasters
To crochet round coasters you’ll need to start from the centre and work in rounds. Each round needs to be bigger as the previous one in order to lay flat on the table. For this reason we will need to add more stitches in each round. The increase in stitches happens in a repeatable pattern that you can memorise once you know how to do it.
In short, you start with 6 stitches in the first round and add 6 stitches in each round after that. That way you’ll have 12 stitches in the second round. In the third round, you add another 6 stitches which will bring the total number to 18 stitches. And it the last one, increase another 6 stitches, total 24. You see the pattern? In each round you increase by 6 stitches. Easy!
Now we need to distribute our added stitches so the coaster is nice and flat. If you add them all in the first half of the coaster it will make that part of the coaster wavy and the rest will curl up. The right amount of added stitches and how you distribute them makes a difference!
Below in the pattern you will see the exact way how and where to place your stitches. I find the best way to make the increases are on top of the increases in the last round. You can easily see them and that will be your cue to increase again in this round. If you’re not exactly sure right now, don’t worry. It will all make sense once you start working on your coaster!

Crochet Coasters Pattern Notes

- This crochet coaster measures 4 inches in diameter. The size can be easily adjusted by working more rounds.
Crochet Round Coasters Instructions
Start with a magic circle, Ch 1.
Round 1. Working puff stitches into the circle.
- Work 6 Pf Sts into the circle, join the round by slip stitching into the top of the first stitch in this round. Tighten the magic circle.
(Puff Stitch: YO, insert hook into specified stitch, YO and pull up a long loop to the height of a normal double crochet. YO, insert your hook into the same stitch and pull up a long loop. YO again, insert hook into the same stitch again and pull up a long loop again. You should have 7 loops on your hook. YO and pull through all loops on your hook. YO again and pull through the loop on your hook)
Round 2. In this round you work 2 Pf Sts in each space. Pf Sts are worked into the gap between the stitches in previous round.
- Sl St into the space between the stitches in the previous round, Ch 1. Work 2 Pf Sts in each space, join the round with a Sl St. (12 Puff stitches in total)
Round 3. You can continue with the same colour or switch to a different one like you see in the first picture. To switch colour, simply fasten off and cut the yarn.
- Sl St to first space between the stitches (or join new colour here with a slip stitch). Ch 1, *2 Pf Sts in the same space, 1 Pf St in next space. Repeat from *until the end of round, join. (18)
Round 4. In this round you work 2 Pf St in the first space, 1 in the next and 1 in the next.
- Sl St to next St. Ch 1, *2 Pf Sts in first, 1 Pf St in next, 1 Pf St in next. Repeat from * until end of round, join. (24)
Fasten off and weave in all ends.
If you want to make them slightly larger, add another round. To do that, you work *2 Pf Sts in the first space, 1 Pf St in next, 1 Pf St in next, 1 Pf St in next. Repeat from * to end of round.

Crochet Round Coasters Video Demonstration
In this video, I will show two rows: how to start the coaster and how to make Puff Stitches. For the colour changes, please see the second video below.
How to Change Colours Video Demonstration
In this video, I demonstrate how I changed colours in both versions of the two-coloured coasters. Starting with the easier version first, where you just need to fasten off after the second row and attach the new colour.
After that, you can watch how I changed colours within the round to make the second version. This one is slightly more challenging as you need to carry the non-working yarn within the stitches and adjust the tension when changing to a different colour.
I hope these videos are helpful to you! Any questions, let me know in the comments below! 🙂
