Car Coaster Free Crochet Pattern

I started making Car Coasters about a year ago and have been using a Cotton version in my car and have absolutely loved it. I saw another maker friend make hers using Bernat Maker Yarn and thought that was such a smart yarn to use. I updated my pattern to work with a bulky weight yarn and have been so happy with mine that I thought I would share the pattern on my blog!

Materials for Completion

6mm Crochet Hook US H-J – or appropriate hook for the yarn you are using.

Bulky Weight 5 yarn – Approximately 10 yards – Yarn used is Bernat Maker

Darning Needle

Vegan Suede Tag – I use blank tags that I sell in my Etsy Shop

Size: Approximately 3″ x 3″ – Size may vary depending on the yarn used and how lose or tight you crochet. You do want the coaster to measure around 3″ as that is a good universal size that will fit most car cup holders. If you find that your coaster is larger, you can try sizing down your hook or using a slightly tighter tension when creating your puff sttitches. If you find the coaster too small, you can try using a slightly loser tension when crocheting the puff stitches to see if that helps.

Selected Abbreviations

ch = chain

hdc = half double crochet

hdc2tog puff st abbreviated as (puff st) in this pattern = half double crochet 2 together puff stitch

MAR  = magic adjustable ring

st(s) = stitch(es)

sl st = slip stitch

() = numbers in parenthesis are the number of stitches at the end of the round.

Special Technique - hdc2tog puff st

Hdc2tog puff st (puff) =  yarn over hook, insert into space between hdc sts from previous round and pull through you should have 3 loops on your hook. Yarn over hook, insert into the same space, you will have 5 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull yarn through all 5 loops. DO NOT CH1.

Let's Get Started

All stitches will be crocheted in the space between each stitch.

Chain stitches DO NOT count as a stitch.

Start with MAR, ch1

Round 1: 9 hdc into MAR, pull MAR tail to cinch closed. Join in the beginning with a sl st. (9)

Round 2: ch1, 2 puff sts into each space (the space between each hdc). Join with sl st (18)

Round 3: ch1, *1 puff st into next space, 2 puff sts into the next space, repeat from * to end. Join with sl st (27)

Finishing: Sl st around the edge of round, into the top of each of the puff stitches. In this round you will add your vegan suede pull tab by slip stitching it into place. Join in the beginning with a sl st.

See below for adding the pull tab.

Cut yarn and weave in yarn tails.

I really like both sides of this pattern, the backside has a really neat looking texture, if you want to use the backside as the front side, add the pull tab on the top when you slip stitch around. Before inserting the hook in the top of the puff stitch add the leather tag, then insert into the top of the puff stitch to finish the slip stitch.

Video Tutorial

In the video tutorial I show how I add the vegan suede label as a pull tab, you can also scroll just past this video for a photo tutorial.

Adding the Pull tab

Adding the pull tab Steps 1 and 2
Fold the vegan suede label in half, after you insert your hook into the top of the puff stitch insert the hook into the vegan suede label.
Adding the pull tab Steps 3 and 4
Grab the yarn and pull through the vegan suede label and top of puff stitch then complete the slip stitch. This will attach the vegan suede label onto the back of the coaster to create the pull tab.

      I just updated the post, I had forgotten to add how many yards 1 coaster will take. For me, it is about 10 yards, but to be on the safe side you may want 10-11 yards per coaster.
