Dishie Cotton Yarn Beautiful Hexagon Crochet Coasters

*Yarn Note:

I chose to use Dishie cotton yarn for my coasters because it’s soft, durable, and the cotton fiber soaks up condensation and doesn’t melt under hot temperatures.

I recommend using cotton yarn for this reason, but you can use any yarn fiber or brand. If you choose to use a different yarn, check your gauge, and consider changing your hook size to suit your yarn.

Gauge / Pattern Measurement:

This crochet hexagon coaster measures 5″ wide x 5″ long, after blocking.

If you want to crochet the same size coaster, then it’s important to check your gauge. Your yarn choice, hook size, and tension can all affect your gauge.

  • If your coaster is too small, consider using a larger hook size, a thicker yarn, or adjusting your tension, until you reach the desired sized.
  • If your coaster is too big, try using a smaller hook size, a thinner yarn, or adjusting your tension, until you reach the desired sized.

Abbreviations:

  • Ch – chain
  • Sp – space
  • St(s) – stitch(es)
  • Sl st – slip stitch
  • Hdc – half double crochet
  • Dc – double crochet
  • Ps – puff stitch – (see special stitches below)
  • YO – yarn over
  • Rnd – round
  • MR – magic ring

Hexagon Snowflake Coasters with Puff Stitch - Free Crochet Pattern

Pattern:

Notes:

  • The beginning ch 1 of each rnd does not count as a st.
  • The Ps after the ch-1 sp is hard to see/work into, so consider marking it with a stitch marker.
  • Stitch counts are shown in <> at the end of each rnd.
  • Follow the blocking instructions below to help your coaster lie flat and straight!

Make a MR.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, [Ps, Ch 1] 6 times in MR. Join with a sl st. <6 Ps, 6 ch-1 sp>

Make a sl st into the ch-1 sp, before starting Rnd 2.

Rnd 2: Ch 1, [(Ps, ch 1, Ps, ch 1) in ch-1 sp] 6 times. Join with a sl st. <12 Ps, 12 ch-1sp>

Make a sl st into the ch-1 sp, before starting Rnd 3.

Rnd 3: Ch 2, [(Ps, ch 1, Ps) in ch-1 sp, dc in next st, dc in next ch-1 sp, dc in next st] 6 times. Join with a sl st. <12 Ps, 6 ch-1 sp, 18 dc>

Make a sl st into the ch-1 sp, before starting Rnd 4.

Rnd 4: Ch 2, [(Ps, ch 1, Ps) in ch-1 sp, dc in next 5 sts] 6 times. Join with a sl st. <12 Ps, 6 ch-1 sp, 30 dc>

Make a sl st into the ch-1 sp, before starting Rnd 5. 

Rnd 5: Ch 1, [3 hdc in ch-1 sp, hdc in next 7 sts] 6 times. Join with a sl st OR try the invisible join method below for a seamless join. <60 hdc>

Invisible Join Method:

To create a seamless join at the end of the coaster, try the invisible join method below. It really works, so you won’t be able to see where you fastened off!

  • After working the last hdc of Rnd 5, pull up the loop on the hook to make a long tail for seaming, and cut the strand. (Picture 1 & 2)
  • Thread a yarn needle with the tail, and insert needle from back to front through the 2 loops of the second st of the rnd. (Picture 3 & 4)
  • Insert needle from front to back into the back loop of the last st of the rnd. (Picture 5 & 6)
  • On the back side of your coaster, weave the tail through a few stitches to pull the join closed. (Picture 7)
  • Now weave in your end normally, and make a knot to secure it. This creates a seamless join! (Picture 8)

Block Your Crochet Hexagon Coaster:

It’s normal for your coaster to puff up in the center, and your edges to curl slightly. This will all be fixed after the blocking process.

Blocking is the process of wetting or steaming crochet to improve the drape of the piece, help the stitches lay flat, and straighten the edges.

  • Place the coaster on a surface that you can stick pins into, like a blocking mat, piece of Styrofoam, cardboard, or carpet.
  • Stick straight pins into the sides and center of the coaster to hold it in place and help it lie flat.
  • With a steamer or a spray bottle, gently steam/spray the coaster. If you are using a steamer, make sure to stay at least 2 inches away from the coaster, so the yarn doesn’t burn.
  • Gently pat the steam/water into the coaster with your hand.
  • Allow the coaster to dry completely before unpinning it.
