Is a Crochet Hexagon Coaster a Beginner-Friendly Pattern?

Making a crochet hexagon coaster is quite easy. The Diamonds Coasters are crocheted using double crochet, chains and treble, so if you master these stitches you are good to go!
Using the filet crochet method (it’s not as scary as it sounds), with mainly double crochet and chains, you create the diamond shapes while crocheting in the round, and by only 7 rounds you can make this beautiful crochet coaster!
In the last round we add a cute picot at each corner, and you will find a photo-tutorial to help you make it.

What Yarn Should You Use for a Crochet Coaster?

The best yarn for home decor and kitchen used items is always cotton yarn. Because it’s more heat resistant and easy to wash (just toss it into the washing machine).
For these crochet coasters I used Fingering (#1) weight yarn, although Sport (#2) weight yarn would also be a good fit for the pattern with a suitable hook size, which will result in a slightly bigger coaster.
Great yarn options for this pattern will be:
Knit Picks – Comfy Fingering
Mary Maxim Crochet Cotton
Lion Brand Oh Baby Yarn
Paintbox Cotton 4-Ply

  1. Thank you for the free PDF for your lovely pattern! Happy Hanukkah! It’s nice to ‘meet’ another Jewish crocheter. I don’t run into many in the US.

    1. You are very welcome, Meredith! Happy Hanukkah 🙂

  2. Hi. I wa wondering what the pattern repeat would be if I were to make this bigger. I love this pattern and I want to make something of it but in a larger scale.

    1. Hi Kayla,

      If you want to work this pattern in a larger scale, you can try the Diamonds Doily which is the bigger version of this coaster: https://madebygootie.com/crochet/diamonds-doily-free-crochet-pattern/

      Hope it helps 🙂
      Agat

      1. Ok thank you.

  3. what do u soak the coasters in before u block them?

  4. can you use this pattern to make an afaghan ?

    1. You can use a thicker yarn, to make the hexagons bigger.
      But you can also use the Diamonds hexagon blanket pattern which is based on this pattern:

  5. what do you mean by “skip next ch-2”?

    1. Skipping the chain 2 space.

  6. I used medium (4) cotton yarn (Crafter’s Secret), with an F hook. That made the coaster too big. I changed all the dc to hdc, and changed the chain 3 to chain 2 at the beginning of the rows. It’s still a bit big for a coaster, but came out pretty nice. My granddaughters liked it, so, good enough for me.

    1. Sounds pretty! I’m glad you managed to change it to fit your yarn.
