You know what you totally need in life? This Crochet Pumpkin Coaster Pattern, that’s what!
I’m completely in love with the delicious orange goodness of these darling coasters. And would you look at that little leaf? Game over. My fall is complete!
If you’ve never made a crochet coaster, you are so in for a treat. A quick evening project with worsted weight yarn and suddenly your favorite room in the house is complete with this delightful crocheted pumpkin coaster! These coasters are so easy and fun to make.
The first three rows are a basic double crochet circle worked on a magic ring. In row 4, there are some stitch height variations at the top and bottom to give that realistic pumpkin indent.
Then, without fastening off, the stem is crocheted right on top with a few basic stitches.
And then.. that glorious leaf! It’s a smaller version of the delightful leaf on the Crochet Pumpkin that so many of you love. This smaller leaf is perfect for the top of this cute pumpkin coaster. It also would look amazing if you wanted to add an extra touch to the tiny pumpkins on the Fall Crochet Wreath.
I seriously don’t know what it is about that orange-rust pumpkin color that has my heart singing! Fall is my favorite crochet season of all. The cooler temps. The glorious color on the trees. Warm soup on the stove. Snuggled under a blanket with my crochet and something fun to watch on TV. It’s heaven.
And if you’re looking for Crochet Pumpkin Appliques, this is a great pattern for that too. You can keep it the same size with worsted weight yarn or make it in a DK weight or thread weight yarn for a smaller pumpkin. And if you’re looking for a much larger coaster, try a bulky weight yarn. So fun!
