These adorable cup coasters are easy to crochet and so cute to display! One skein of cotton yarn will quickly make four of these simple, circle coasters with a bobble edging. Find the free written crochet pattern below right here on my blog.

Cotton Yarn for the Win!
Cotton yarn is a must for this project! You may need to wash these cup coasters at one point and cotton yarn is great for holding up through washing.
You also don’t want a yarn that will be fuzzy or pill, so this is another reason you will want to use cotton yarn! It will hold up well and not give you that fuzzy look acrylic might give you after being used time and time again.
Cotton is not always a favorite fiber to use because it does tend to split while crocheting with it. However, there are very good cotton yarns that won’t do this. I recommend I Love This Yarn! from Hobby Lobby or Dishie Cotton from KnitPicks/WeCrochet. These cotton yarns are actually enjoyable to work with and I recommend you give them a try!
I think this would make such a great gift that is quick and easy to crochet! It just takes one skein of cotton yarn to make a set of 4, which is the perfect number for a coaster set.
You can gift this crochet cup coaster set with a cute mug and a variety of other things that can fit in the mug: hot chocolate packs, tea bags, small pack of cookies/baked goods, candies/chocolates, coffee shop gift cards, coffee spoon, hot cocoa combs, etc.
I think it would be really cute to put a few things in the mug with the coasters either inside or on the bottom of the mug and wrap it in that pretty crinkly cellophane with a bow on top.
If you are looking to add even more items for a bigger gift, you can put everything all in one basket! With that you can even add fuzzy socks and maybe a few self-care items such as an eye mask, hand lotion, chapstick – like a basket full of small cozy gifts!

Crochet Pattern Notes
I used almost an entire skein of Dishie cotton (190 yards) to make 4 coasters.
Beginning chain does not count as a stitch.
When working the last row with the bobbles, they will curl up and make an edge around the coaster which is the look you are going for. You don’t need to ‘poke’ the bobbles to the front.
Dimensions: Finished cup coaster is 4.25” wide.
Bobble stitch: *YO, insert hook into st, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops, repeat from * 3 more times into the same stitch, YO, pull through all loops on your hook
Abbreviations: (US terms)
Ch = chain, hdc = half double crochet, sc = single crochet, YO = yarn over, st = stitch
Round 1: Magic ring, ch 1, 10hdc in ring, join to first st (10)
