How to Crochet a Heart Coaster

This quick crochet heart coaster pattern is very simple to make and uses very basic stitches. The secret to make the heart shape is by making one increase on one end and a decrease on the other end of the heart. Keep scrolling for the full instructions, but here are the basic steps:

  1. Firstly, you’ll make a foundation with 44 chains and crochet the first row of 3 double crochet cluster stitches.
  2. Secondly, you’ll crochet round 2. But this time going around the foundation chains and keep making clusters of 3 double crochet stitches.
  3. Thirdly, you’ll crochet round 3. But now you’ll make a full round of plain double crochet stitches.
  4. Next, you’ll crochet another full round of plain double crochet stitches.
  5. Then, you’ll crochet edging with a shell stitch consisting of 7 double crochet stitch to form a “fan” shape.
  6. And lastly, you’ll add the “cherry on top” by making a round of single crochet stitches around the shells.

Pattern Variations & Usage

This crochet heart coaster will make adorable drink coasters for your coffee or dinner tables. However, by simply modifying the yarn weight and hook size, it’s possible to make it for other purposes as well.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Make doilies – use thicker yarns to make mini doilies. In addition, if you’re comfortable doing the math, start your foundation with 64 chains and add an extra round to the pattern to make it into a larger doily.
  • Bookmarks – use lace yarn or thread to make miniature hearts that can be used as bookmarks. This would make an amazing Valentine’s Day little gift to friends or classmates.
  • Goodie bags – make two pieces, attach them together and add a handle to create a cute heart bag. Then, fill them with goodies or a gift card for a loved one.
  • Table runner – another idea is to make several hearts and attach them together to make a table runner.

Skills You’ll Need

This crochet heart coaster pattern uses basic stiches only. Which will make it suitable for crocheters that are comfortable reading crochet patterns in US terms. Here are the instructions for the main stitches used:

  • Chain (ch) – with your hook inserted in the current loop, yarn over and pull up a loop.
  • Double crochet (dc) – yarn over, insert the hook in next stitch, yarn over again, pull up a loop, (yarn over pull through two) twice to complete the stitch.
  • Shell – this stitch will be used for the edging and consists of a cluster of 7 double crochet stitches in the same stitch, as instructed in the pattern.
  • Single Crochet Two Together (sc2tog) – insert the hook in next stitch, (yarn over and pull up a loop) two times, when you have three loops on hook, yarn over and pull through all three to complete the stitch.

Keep scrolling for the instructions, but here is some important information before you start.

Materials

  • Super Fine (#1) or Fine (#2) yarn.
  • 2.00 mm (2/0) Tulip Etmo crochet hook.
  • Stitch Marker (optional, but super helpful).
  • Tapestry Needle – you’ll use it to weave in your ends after finishing.

Best Yarn for This Crochet Coaster

My favorite yarns for crochet coasters are cotton or cotton blends. Any weight between Super Fine (#1) and Worsted weight (#4) will work great. You’ll need approximately 60 yds (55 m).
