Introduction to Crochet/A set of coasters

Coasters are one of the simplest crochet projects to make.

A set of coasters.


  • Size G hook
  • Cotton yarn in two colors


  • Chain stitch 15 stitches.
  • Turn. Make a one chain stitch turning chain.
  • Single crochet each row until the item is square, about 18 rows.
  • Switch to contrasting color. Half double crochet around the entire border.
  • Work in loose ends.

Repeat until the desired number of coasters are complete.

The pictured example is displayed in a paper mache box. For a simpler way to complete the project as a gift, make a long chain stitch in the border color and use it to tie together the coasters in a bow.
