SIMPLE FREE HEART COASTER CROCHET PATTERN

You will need 100% cotton UK Aran/US Worsted weight yarn in any colours you choose. I have used a selection of pastel colours to match my favourite mug. I have used Rico Creative Cotton Aran yarn, but this does tend to split so it may not be suitable for beginners. You may want to use a cotton yarn with tighter twists like Lily Sugar ‘n Cream both available at LoveCrochet.com. This is an affiliate link which helps me make some crochet patterns free to view.



You will also need a 5mm hook, or if you tend to crochet loose, use a 4.5mm hook. You want to keep the stitches tight making a smooth, absorbent surface for your coasters. This also makes the coasters firmer.

FREE CROCHET PATTERNS FOR BEGINNERS – COASTERS

You will only need to know these few stitches and terms to make these coasters: (ch) chain, (sc) single crochet, (sl st) slip stitch. We will also be using (sc2tog) single crochet 2 together, which will be explained within the pattern. I will also explain how to finish with an invisible join. I will also use the abbreviation (st) or (sts) for stitch/es.

The coasters are made in joined rounds, working around both sides of a starting chain.

We will chain 1 at the beginning of each round to step up, but these do not count as stitches.

Round 1.

Start by chaining 16, we will mainly be working along the top loops of the ch sts.

work 2sc stiches in the 2nd ch from hook, sc x6 along the ch

work this next part around both the top loop and back bump loop of the next ch st, make 3sc in this same ch st, (working through both loops here will prevent having a big stretched out hole in the middle of your coaster)

continue along the top loops only of the chain again, sc x6, and make 2sc in the last ch st,

now work along the opposite side of the starting chain, start with a sc in the opposite side of the same last chain (going in on the other side of the slip knot), sc x5,

INVISIBLE JOIN

This invisible join technique is used for a neat finish when working in rounds.

Heart Coasters Free Crochet PatternCut the yarn leaving a couple of inches and pull the tail end up through the last stitch. Using your yarn needle, thread the tail through the second stitch along, skipping the first stitch. 

Heart Coasters Free Crochet PatternThread the tail end back into the middle of the last stitch making a loop that looks just like the stitch tops, sitting on top of the first sc stitch. Pull to adjust the loop so that it looks the same as the other stitch tops.

Free heart coaster crochet patternYou will find the first stitch top beneath sticks out a little at the back. Thread the tail in through the top of this first stitch, bring the tail back over and in the same place again and carry on threading through the back of the next few stitches. This will flatten the stitch down while weaving inFree heart coaster crochet pattern the end. Weave the tail end back up along the back of stitches in the opposite direction for a firm hold and trim off excess.

Block your finished coasters to ensure a smooth flat surface by simply placing a cloth on top and running a steam iron over them.

Congratulations!
