{FREE} Circle Coaster Knitting Pattern

Alright, so I went a little crazy trying to figure out the perfect “circle” coaster.
I want to share them all with you, just in case you want to take this crazy train too ;)

Note: I didn’t block any of these coasters, but I think a light blocking would help them lay a little flatter.


This mustard “coaster” is the one that started my desire to find the perfect knitted circle. I was testing different ways to decrease stitches on a seed stitch hat and the test came out as a circle. It was super cute, so I had to use it for something and it just happened to be the perfect size for a coaster :)

Here’s the pattern for the mustard colored coaster:
Size: 5 1/2″ wide

Using size 11 {8mm} needles with 16″ {41cm} circular cable,
or DPN’s or a longer cable to knit in the magic loop method.

Round 1: *P1, K1* P1
Round 2: *K1, P1, K1, P1, K2TOG, P1, K1, P1, K2TOG* {3 times} last 10 STS K1, P1, K1, P1, K2TOG, P1, K1, P1, K1 {36 STS remaining}

Don’t bind-off. Cut the yarn leaving a 6″ tail, thread it on a darning needle and then pull through the remaining STS, pull tight, push it through the center into the inside and weave in the ends.
Weave in the beginning tail too.
