Northwest Cup Coaster (Free Crochet Pattern + Video Tutorial)

by - September 21, 2020


Dear fellow crocheters,

Autumn season is a'coming!  A great way to bring in the season is with piping hot drinks.  For me, it's my pseudo coffee, "Dandy Blend" (a non-caffeinated but coffee-tasting drink!), or fall-inspired teas with pumpkin spice and cinnamon! 

Of course, I always love throwing crochet into the mix some way or another... hence my newest design, the Northwest Cup Coaster!


This crochet pattern is:
  • Free on my blog!
  • Quick
  • Easy and beginner-friendly
  • Rustic
  • Textured
  • Features the Suzette Stitch & Surface Slip Stitch 
  • Available as a video tutorial 
  • Makes a great gift set and craft fair product


As a resident of the Pacific Northwest, I know how much us Northwesterners LOVE our coffee mugs.  Here are a few on my wishlist that I think are oh-so-cute and gorgeous... 


Since a coffee mug is a must, I'd say that a coffee cup coaster is also a must! ;)


I don't know about you, but I love having a touch of yarn wherever possible.  This cup coaster that I designed, in particular, is just the perfect quick fix for that because it's so easy, beginner-friendly, and fast to whip up!  

It features the beautiful Suzette Stitch, which provides a lovely, textured look.  I think it looks especially beautiful with Lion Brand Heartland Yarn.  There are so many different shades that are all heathered tweed and so trendy!  


I made this particular set below in the color 'Yosemite'.


The green coaster here is in the color 'Joshua Tree', with an added lining detail in 'Kings Canyon.'  This greenish look reminds me of how woodsy the Pacific Northwest is.  It just brings me a sense of calm and relaxation...


Adding wooden buttons is also something I love to do when it comes to putting an extra touch of "rustic" feel to any crochet project!

~ CROCHET INSTRUCTIONS ~


Notes:

Start with the main yarn color (green). 

Ch 14. 

R1: In the 2nd ch from the hook: sc, dc. (Sk a st, [sc, dc] in next st) across, until you reach the last st.  Insert just one sc in the last st. 

R2: Ch 1, turn. Sc and dc in first st. (Sk a st, [sc, dc] in next st) across, until you reach the last st.  Insert just one sc in the last st. 

R3-R11: Repeat R2. 
Tip: I stopped at R11 for my mug rug to be a perfect square of 4” x 4” without the border.  If you crochet very tightly or loosely, you may have to add or crochet fewer rows to end up with a square as well.  Or, if you’d like a rectangle instead, add rows until you reach your desired length. 

Border: Ch 1, turn. Sc in same st. Sc across the straight edge. (At the corner: [sc, ch, sc] all in same st. Then, sc across the straight edge) x 3. In the last st of the entire round: sc, ch, join with a sl st to the first sc in this round. 

FO and weave in the ends. 

Optional Lining Detail: With the surface sl st technique, attach a different colored yarn between the sc border and the body (R1-R11) of the coaster.  Surface sl st around the entire square.  FO and weave in the ends.
