With four kids, and some who have more than one teacher, I need an easy crochet project that’s small and fast.

Small and fast is important when I’m making crochet gifts. But, it isn’t everything. I also want the gift to be useful. Protecting your coffee table from glass rings is pretty helpful!

You can crochet these coasters in different colors to suit the theme. I aim for gifts I think they’ll love and/or find useful.

These beautiful coasters would make a great teacher gift by those standards. A simple project that is small, fast, useful.

I hope the teachers can enjoy a frosty beverage while relaxing with their family around the pool this summer.

Mug rugs are similar to coasters but they’re usually longer, more rectangular for space to fit a spoon!

A funny little side note about these glasses. We’ve had them forever. I’m not even sure where they came from-maybe my husband’s relatives.

A couple of nights ago we were watching Back to the Future on Netflix. {Yes I was crocheting!} It was my pick since I was going to crochet.

I wanted something to look up from my work at, when I needed, but not something that was going to distract me from it either.

Anyway, there’s a scene at the kitchen table near the beginning that caught my eye. Wouldn’t you know it, they were using the same exact glasses as these right here on my coaster. We had a good chuckle at that.

The best yarn for absorbent coasters is 100% cotton. You can use acrylic yarn it just won’t be absorbent. So if you have some random scrap yarn, grab it and crochet away!



  1. The border and edges are worked within the pattern.
  2. You’ll work on both sides of the foundation chain.
  3. To adjust the size of your coaster, start with any number of chains and then add 3.

ch sp – chain space

sc – single crochet 

sk – skip the indicated stitch

sl st – slip stitch

st(s) – stitch(es)          

rep – repeat

Special Stitch

picot – chain 3, slip stitch to first chain made.

Skill Level


This is an easy crochet coaster pattern made mostly of basic stitches, but it does include a special stitch. So if you know the basics and are ready to add new stitches to your crochet journey then this one might be for you. To keep it easy I include both step by step pictures and video tutorial for support!


The picot stitches are worked on the edges of the square shape all at the same time. You will work into both sides of the foundation chain. It may be a good idea to make your chain loose, so you can work into both sides easily.

Working into both sides of the foundation chain allows for creating the picot edge to start. Then you’ll be working the single crochet rows, starting each one with an edge picot. 

Finally, the last row will mirror the first. You’ll crochet the picots and single crochets across this last row. When you finish this row, the border is ready made!
