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.

(Please link back to my pattern if you make any of these cute coasters. I’d appreciate it if you wouldn’t copy or rewrite my pattern onto another page. Thank you!)

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,
