Make good use of your yarn scraps with these Happy Scrappy Mandala Crochet Coasters!
The carefree happy effect of this mandala style coaster works best with random mixes of colours, which is why it’s perfect for leftover scraps of yarn.
I have used Aran/Worsted weight cotton yarn for my coasters, but you can use up your acrylic scraps too. They may not be as absorbent, but will still prevent mugs from leaving heat rings on your tables.
The ﬁnished coasters measure approximately 10cm/ 4” in diameter.
This super easy coaster pattern is so versatile, you can achieve different styles by simply changing the colours of your coasters!

What You’ll Need To Crochet Mandala Coasters
You will need some aran/worsted weight yarn for these coasters. You can decide whether you want to use mixed colourful scraps, coordinated colours, or just one single colour.
Each coaster uses less than 15yds/10g of yarn to make. To help you check if your scrap pieces of yarn are long enough, I have measured the yarn used for each round.
- Round 1. 50”/127cm/1.39yds (less than 1g)
- Round 2. 90”/228cm/2.5yds (less than 2g)
- Round 3. 164”/416cm/4.56yds (less than 3g)
- Round 4. 234”/595cm/6.5yds (less than 4g)
Exact gauge is not too important. Just try to keep your stitches fairly tight, to help give structure to the coasters. I have used a 4.5mm hook.
You will also need a yarn needle and scissors.
The ﬁnished coasters should measure approximately 10cm/4” in diameter.
Stitches & Terms Used For The Mandala Coasters:
(ch) Chain, (sp) Space, (sk) Skip, (sl st) Slip Stitch, (sc) Single Crochet, (dc) Double Crochet.
A number shown before a stitch, means work that number of stitches in the same next stitch or space (eg. 2dc = work 2 double crochets into the same stitch/space).
Instructions within [ ] are to be worked into the same stitch/space.
Number within ( ) show the total number of stitches you should have after that row/round.
Tip: As we will be working dc stitches, we will start each round with a ch3 as the ﬁrst stitch. To help blend in these ch3s with the normal dc stitches, weave your ends down through the ch3 when fastening off. This will thicken the chains, making them look more like the stitches. Or you can replace the ch3s with your preferred method of alternative starting dc stitch.
Shall we get started?

Fun & Easy Scrap Yarn Coasters
For happy scrappy mandala style coasters, change yarn colours for each round, mixing your colours randomly for each coaster.
For dainty flower style coasters, start with a yellow or light colour, and use 3 gradients of your chosen flower colour, working from light to dark.
For pretty lacy style coasters, instead of fastening off at the end of each round, simply sl st into the next chain space to work the next round.
Start by chaining 4 and sl st into the ﬁrst ch to form a small circle,
ch4 (counts as the ﬁrst dc + ch1), [dc, ch1] 8 times into the circle, sl st into the 3rd ch of the starting ch4 to join, fasten off and weave in ends.
(18 = 9 dc sts and 9 ch1 sps)
Join your next colour with a sl st into any ch1 space,
ch5 (counts as the ﬁrst dc + ch2), sk the dc st, *2dc into the ch1 sp, ch2, sk the dc st,* repeat between * around, dc into the ﬁrst ch1 sp, sl st into the 3rd ch to join, fasten off and weave in ends.
(36 = 9 sets of 2dc and 9 ch2 sps)
Join your next colour with a sl st into any ch2 space,
ch4 (counts as the ﬁrst dc + ch1), sk 2dc, *[2dc, ch1, 2dc] into the ch2 sp, ch1, sk 2dc,* repeat between * around, [2dc, ch1, dc] into the ﬁrst ch1 sp, sl st into the 3rd ch to join, fasten off and weave in ends.
(54 = 9 sets of [2dc, ch1, 2dc] and 9 ch1 sps)
Join your next colour with a sc into a ch1 sp in between any two [2dc, ch1, 2dc] sets (ie. a larger ch1 gap above a 2dc st of R2.),
6dc into the next ch1 sp (ie. in between the two 2dc sts), *sc into the next ch1 sp, 6dc into the following ch1 sp,* repeat between * around, sl st into the beginning sc st to join, fasten off and weave in ends.
(63, 9 sets of 6dc and 9 sc sts)
