Boho Cottage Coasters – Free Crochet Pattern

The Boho Cottage Coasters are the perfect addition to any boho home. The minimal texture is knit-inspired and it is both modern and beginner-friendly. Add leather handles for additional character while still maintaining a modern and minimalist look.

Most of my designs are born out of inspiration rather than necessity. However, this pattern is different because one afternoon I realized that I needed some coasters. Naturally, instead of going out and buying coasters, I decided to make my own with materials that I already had in my stash!

I wanted these coasters to be really minimal and modern, while still having a level of sophistication. To achieve this look, I opted to make these coasters look knit.

After I made the coasters, they felt a little plain to me, so I added these cute little leather tags. I really think they elevate the look of the coasters and make them look store bought (which is almost always the goal of a crocheter 🙂 ).

When I say that these coasters are beginner friendly, I mean they are beginner-friendly. All you need to know how to crochet chains and slip stitches – yep that’s right, the two easiest crochet stitches ever.

The slip stitches create a really dense and sturdy texture which is perfect for coasters!

If you are a visual person, I have created a video tutorial on how to make these coasters. But if you prefer reading patterns, the free pattern is below!

Notes

  1. The pattern is worked in US crochet terms.
  2. Because the pattern is worked in slip stitches, it is important to keep the tension looser than normal. This will make working into the stitches easier.
