Margarita Crochet Coasters
These Margarita coasters complete the set of my drink coaster patterns. They were super fun to design and make. The best part was hearing from my testers about how much they loved both making them and how they turned out.

Coaster Pattern Notes:
- Each row has 19 stitches.
- Ch 1 and turn after every row.
- Ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
- Always work in the 1st st (the st attached to ch).
- Catch your float every 4-6 stitches (learn how to catch/trap floats here).
- Stretch your coaster wide after each row.
- Ensure all strands are always kept on the wrong side of the work.
- Add/switch color when you have two loops of the old color on the sc stitch BEFORE the new color stitch.
- Leave long starting and end tails (approx 24”) when attaching and fastening off for all colors. Once finished, you will use these to help shape the Margarita glass.
- Read the chart from right to left when working on right side rows and left to right when working on the wrong side. The chart is lightly shaded on wrong sides to help you remember. (The written instructions lists everything in the correct order)
A = Main Color (background)
B = Glass Color
C = Margarita Color

Margarita Crochet Coasters Instructions
(Pattern chart is below)
If you crochet tightly, you may want to go up a hook size for the starting chains (only) to ensure you can work more easily into the back ridge loop on Row 1.
Foundation Row: With A (Main Color), chain 20. (Leave a 24” starting tail)
Row 1 (RS): (Continue using A for all of Row 1) Sc into the back ridge loop of the 2nd ch from hook (see pic below for where back ridge loop is). Sc in each back ridge loop across. Reminders: each row has 19 sts. Ch 1 and turn after each row.
(Work in both loops from now on.)
Note About Colorwork Instructions:
In the next row, you will begin changing colors. Every stitch is a single crochet (sc). The pattern does not say to sc because it gets too jumbled. Instead it says something like: A x 6, B x 7, A x 6 which means: using A (Main Color), sc for 5 sts, add B (Glass Color) yarn on the last (the 6th) st. Using B, sc for 6 sts (remember to catch your float every 4-6 stitches), on the last (the 7th) st, change back to A. With A, sc for 6 sts.
Remember to leave 24” inch starting and end tails when attaching and fastening off for all colors.
Color Legend Reminder:
A = Main Color (background)
B = Glass Color
C = Margarita Color
D = Lime Color
Row 2 (WS): A x 6, B x 7, A x 6.
Row 3 (RS): A x 8, B x 3, A x 8.
Row 4 (WS): A x 9, B x 1, A x 9.
Rows 5 – 8: Repeat Row 4.
Row 9 (RS): A x 8, B x 3, A x 8.
Row 10 (WS): A x 7, C x 5, A x 7.
You can either leave B hanging or if it gets in your way, fasten it off.
Rows 11 – 13: Repeat Row 10.
Row 14 (WS): A x 4, C x 11, A x 4.
Row 15 (RS): A x 3, C x 4, D x 1, C x 8, A x 3.
Row 16 (WS): A x 2, C x 8. D x 2, C x 5, A x 2.
Fasten off C.
Row 17 (RS): A x 2, B x 5, D x 2, B x 8, A x 2.
Fasten off B.
Row 18 (WS): A x 9, D x 3, A x 7.
Row 19 (RS): A x 8, D x 1, A x 10.
Row 20 (WS): With A, sc in each st across.
Using your yarn needle, use the tails and sew over any color gaps created by the stitches to help shape the Margarita glass for a more polished look. Try to replicate the natural direction of the stitches.
Weave in all loose ends.
Margarita Coasters Border
With coaster facing you, attach your border color with a sl st into any corner. Make 2 sc in same corner st. Sc around, making 3 sc in each remaining corner st. When back at start, sl st into 1st sc to join.
Fasten off and weave in loose ends.
After completing the entire pattern, I would recommend blocking these coasters by pinning them down (with rust proof pins), spraying with water and leaving them to dry. Do not iron! Blocking helps the corners of the coasters not curl up, ensures the coaster lies flat and holds the square shape.
Felt Backs (Optional)
I attached felt backs to the coasters to make them have a smooth bottom and hide the carried yarn.
I attached the felt to the back of the coasters with Aleene’s Fabric Fusion glue and followed these steps:
- Cut your felt into a 4” x 4” square
- Round out the corners (I found this made the back look nicer)
- Put the fabric glue all around (approximately .75” away from edge).
- Flatten the glue to ensure there isn’t a big bump when it dries (I used a piece of cardboard to spread it)
- Lay your felt square onto the back and press down. Leave to dry completely.
- White square = sc with A (Main Color)
- Light grey square = sc with A (Main Color) on wrong side rows
- Dark grey square = sc with B (Glass Color)
- Circle = sc with C (Margarita Color)
- Black square = sc with D (Lime Color)
And ta-da! Now you have new Margarita coasters!
