Your Secret Weapon for Home Decor: Colorful & Practical Knitted Coasters

Knitted Coaster Patterns

Stitch up something pretty for your coffee and tea with colorful knitted coaster patterns.

Knitted coasters are your secret weapon for adding color and texture to your decor while providing something functional to protect your table, coffee table and other surfaces. They’re also your secret weapon to busting that overflowing yarn stash!

I sprinkle knitted coasters on the coffee table, dining room table and even side tables. Not only do they encourage guests to plop their drinks on a protected surface, but they also add a hint of color to an otherwise dull space.

Dig into that stash and put together a color palette for one of these fun knitted coasters.

It doesn’t get any easier than this! If you want to stitch colorful coasters in a snap, this FREE pattern is for you. There are a couple of basic stitches to choose from, including garter stitch. The most difficult skill you’ll need is changing yarn colors — and that part is totally optional. There’s also a pattern included for mug cozies that you can knit to match the coasters.

2. Rainbow Coasters

This pattern has a pretty, textured stitch that’s an option for knitters who want a stitch that’s repetitive yet interesting. They’re reversible, so you don’t have to be too careful about how you place them. The designer suggests stitching them with 100 percent cotton so that they stand up to a lot of wear and are easy to care for when you accidentally spill something on them.

3. Scalloped Coasters

Skip the plain, square-shaped coasters and instead add some pretty scallops to make the edges more decorative. These look beautiful knitted in both solid and variegated colors, so pull a palette from your scraps. I love designer Frugal Knitting Haus’s suggestion of knitting these as gifts for coffee and tea-loving co-workers!

These coasters have an extra step after you finish stitching. You can either felt them by hand or with a washing machine to make them extra fuzzy and durable. Never felted before? We’ve got you covered. Check out this felting how-to where you can see before and after photos to get a better idea of what the finished project will look like.
