Crochet Patriotic Coasters

July 4th is just around the corner – Independence Day in the USA. Add a little red, white, and blue to your picnic table with these cute, super fast Crochet Patriotic Coasters.

These coasters work up very quickly with worsted weight cotton yarn and an H/5mm hook. I used I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby in red, white, and royalty (blue).

You can find the pattern I created to stitch up these simple coasters below.

Crochet Patriotic Coasters

You’ll need:

  • 2 colors worsted weight cotton yarn (I used 3 colors and made different combinations, but you only need 2 colors to make each coaster)
  • H/5mm hook
  • yarn needle

Stitches used (US terms):

  • Chain – ch
  • Slip Stitch – ss
  • Single Crochet – sc
  • Half Double Crochet – hdc

Note: Chains at the beginning of each round do not count as stitches (except in round 6).

Make a magic ring with color A. Ch 2.

Round 1: Work 12 hdc in ring. Join with ss to first hdc. Pull ring tight. (12 stitches)

Round 2: Ch 2. Work 2 hdc in same stitch as ss and each stitch around. Join with ss to first hdc. (24 stitches)

Round 3: Ch 2. Work 2 hdc in same stitch as ss and in next 2 stitches. *2 hdc in next stitch, hdc in each of next 2 stitches* Repeat from * to * around. Join with ss to first hdc. (32 stitches)

Round 4: Ch 2. Work 2 hdc in same stitch as ss and in next 3 stitches. *2 hdc in next stitch, hdc in each of next 3 stitches* Repeat from * to * around. Join with ss to first hdc. Change to color B. (40 stitches)

Round 5: Ch 1. Work 2 sc in same stitch as ss. Sc in next 4 stitches. *2 sc in next stitch, 1 sc in each of next 4 stitches* Repeat from * to * around. Join with ss to first sc. (48 stitches)

Round 6: Ch 2. Work 2 hdc in same stitch as ss, ch 2. *Skip 2 stitches, 3 hdc in next stitch, ch 2* Repeat from * to * around. Join with ss to top of beginning ch 2. (16 hdc clusters and 16 ch 2 spaces).

Fasten off and weave in ends.

You can make these coasters in any color combo – or in just a single color! Tie up a set of 6 or 8 coasters with a pretty ribbon for a great gift…add the recipient’s favorite beverage or a set of pretty glasses or mugs. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by,
