Crochet Costers

For my boyfriend’s mums birthday I decided to make her some crochet costers as I love giving handmade gifts ☺️ 

These costers can be made to be super colourful like mine and they have a frilly outer edge that wraps around the mug or cup and helps to hold it in place whilst also looking cute! It gives the costers a floral appearance 🌻🌹 



To begin select some colours that you want to use! You can use as many or as little as you like and I will tell you below when to change them 

Round 1: 

  • Chain 4 
  • 13 tr into 4th chain from the hook (14 sts)
  • Slip stitch into final chain to join together
  • Join in new yarn and tie off old one 

Round 2: 

  • Chain 1 
  • *1dc, 2dc* rep to end 
  • Slip stitch into chain 1, add in new yarn, tie off old one 

Round 3: 

  • Chain 1 
  • *1dc, 1dc, 2dc* rep to end 
  • Slip St into chain 1, add in new yarn, tie off old one 

Round 4: 

  • Same as round 2 

Round 5: 

  • Chain 1 
  • *1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2dc* rep to end 
  • Slip stitch into chain 1, add in new yarn 

Round 6:

  • Chain 1 
  • *1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 2dc* rep to end 
  • Slip stitch into chain 1, add in new yarn 

Round 7: 

  • Chain 1 
  • 1dc, 1dc, *2dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc, 1dc rep from * to end 
  • Slip stitch into chain 1, add in petal yarn 

Petals: 

  • Chain 2, 4 tr into next 4 sts 
  • Chain 2, slip stitch into next St 
  • Chain 2, tr into same St as slip St 
  • 3 tr into next 3 sts, chain 2, slip stitch into next St 
  • Rep last 2 points all the way around to form the coster 

On the last 2 petals make them 1 tr smaller if the pattern doesn’t quite fit
