And what’s better than easy crochet coasters? A crochet coaster pattern free with holder!

After I designed the Retro Christmas Tree Towel, I received several requests for seasonal items using the same color change technique with the crochet granny stitch. And because it’s worked in rows, this set is a square crochet coaster pattern.

Related: The Gingerbread Man Hot Pad Crochet Pattern also uses intarsia crochet and has a super cute crochet candy cane border.

Although I love the decorative crochet hand towels I designed for Christmas and Valentines Day, I wanted to design something small for my living room.

With this easy crochet coaster set you’ll use only one square pattern to create either pumpkin coasters or apple coasters simply by changing the colors you use.

How To Crochet Coasters

This crochet coasters pattern uses the classic granny crochet stitch worked in rows (also referred to as the granny stripe stitch) and double crochet stitches.

The fall coasters are made using one small granny stitch square. Simply change the colors you’re using to crochet a pumpkin coaster, or to crochet an apple coaster.

You’ll learn to work color changes using intarsia crochet. I have a photo tutorial with tips for working color changes with the granny stitch.

After crocheting the square crochet coasters, you’ll add a simple single crochet border. Using a contrasting color yarn adds a nice pop of color.

If you love like to have a little caddy to hold your coasters, I’ve included instructions to crochet a cute little textured coaster holder. This small crochet basket is worked in one piece from the bottom up.

Not a fan of coasters, but love the little crochet coaster holder? The crochet basket can be used for a variety of things, such as a crochet hook holder for the table next to your favorite chair.


Cotton is my go-to fiber for crochet dish cloths, dish towels, and hand towels as it’s the most absorbent. I also love to use it for crochet coasters because it will absorb the water from a sweaty glass.

There are several cotton yarns out there that would be perfect for this project, but I chose to use Lily Sugar n’ Cream 100% worsted weight cotton yarn.

Lily Sugar n’ Cream and Peaches & Creme are available in dozens of colors so I was able to find the perfect colors I needed for this project.


100% cotton yarns make the best yarn to use for crochet coaster. If you want to substitute another yarn, I recommend using a cotton blend yarn that is at least 50% cotton. Anything less, and your coasters will not be as absorbent.


The fall crochet coasters free pattern is below, but if you love to work offline, I’ve got a couple other great options for you.

Pattern Notes

  • I tend to crochet on the tighter side, if you crochet more loosely, you may need to go down a hook size or two to meet gauge. However, this is a pattern for a coaster set and not a fancy sweater so gauge isn’t too terribly important. But would you be upset if you ended up with a hot plate instead of a coaster? If so, better check that gauge. 😉 
  • Beginning ch 3 are counted as a stitch and included in stitch count. Other beginning ch-1 are not included in stitch count, unless stated otherwise.
  • First stitch of each row is worked into the same stitch as turning chain, unless stated otherwise.

    • Sage Green (CB): 70 yards
    • Red (CC): 24 yards
  • Color Changes: Work all color changes on the final pull thru of the last stitch you’re working before the new color. Example: If the last st you’re working before a color change is a double crochet, begin your double crochet by inserting your hook where indicated, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull thru 2 loops, yo with the NEW color, pull thru remaining 2 loops to complete the stitch. Then continue on with your new color.
