Let's crochet together!


Wet notebook paper from a cold drink makes my skin crawl. That’s why I decided to make this easy, fun crochet coaster.

After you make one, you’ll never have to deal with your cold drinks dripping condensation onto your table or desk again! This quick and easy crochet coaster tutorial and pattern makes such a wonderfully absorbent coaster.

The cotton yarn used is both durable and really absorbent! I really like working with it, so I always keep some in my yarn stash.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this coaster:


H/5.0 mm Crochet Hook; 1 Skein Lily Sugar ‘n Cream, Worsted [4] weight 100% cotton yarn, 2.5 oz/70.9g, 120 yds/109 m, shown in White; Yarn Needle; Scissors


Ch- chain; Sc- single crochet; Sl- slip stitch; St- stitch;

Gauge / Finished Size

7 st and 6 rounds in 2” square in lemon peel stitch. As written, potholder measures 7” square, and 10” from corner to corner.


This coaster begins with a chain that is approximately the length of the diagonal you want your finished coaster to be. The piece is worked in continuous rounds, starting with both sides of the chain, then closed into a double layer coaster with a slip stitch or sewn seam.

Chain 31 (or odd number to reach desired size).

Round 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across, turn and place a second sc in the back bump of the last ch, then work a sc in the back bump of each ch across. [60 sc]

Round 2: Sc in first st and each st around.

Repeat Round 2 continuously until piece forms a double layered square.

Finishing: Slip stitch across seam to join, or fasten off and seam shut with a yarn needle and a 12” length of yarn.

Fasten off and weave in all ends, block as desired.
