Learn how to crochet a heart shaped coaster with my free crochet pattern and video tutorial. Switch up your standard coasters around your home with these crochet heart coasters! I love adding an extra handmade touch throughout the year on special occasions like this and these heart coasters make lovely gifts to help spread the love during the month of love. So if you want to add a little love around your home keep reading to find out more details. I have used red yarn for the tutorial but you can see them in different colours below. In this post you will find all of the information you need to make these coasters, written instructions PLUS a video tutorial available in right and left handed versions. So let’s get started…
Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guide EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions. You can find my EBook HERE.
What you will need
Yarn used: Yarn and Colours ‘Fabulous’ in the colour Pepper (less than one ball needed) a cotton yarn is highly recommend for this pattern.
Hook size used: 5.5mm (I went down on the hook side to ensure a tight tension)
Written in UK terms
Gauge isn’t important with this project. Just keep your hook size and tension consistent.
Video tutorial can be found below.
Chain(s): ch(s): Yarn over, pull through
Slip Stitch(s): ss(s): Insert hook, yarn over pull through stitch and loop on hook
Double Crochet(s): dc(s): Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, you will have two loops on the hook. Yarn over, pull through remaining two loops.

I believe there may have been a small bit left out of round 5. Shouldn’t there be 1dc into next 3 stitches before AND after the skip 2?
I made this pattern into a basket-so cute with a few pieces of candy tucked inside!

Yes, there should be one double crochet in the three stitches before and after the two skipped stitches – this is actually in the written pattern but the first part is included in the starred section so it reads a little differently The basket sounds lovely! 🙂

I also noticed, in round 2, after the skip 2 stitches, you forgot to put in about 1dc into 5 BEFORE 2dc in 2dc in next 3.
“2dc into the first 3 stitches, 1dc into the next 5 stitches, skip 2 stitches, 2dc into the next 3 stitches, 1dc into the next 7 stitches, (dc, ch2, dc) into ch2 space, 1dc into last 7 stitches. Mark your last stitch with your stitch marker.” I love making these, but following the video tutorial was easier. Some things are left out of the written directions. Thank you for everything! I am a beginner, and really enjoyed making these!

I’m happy to hear you enjoyed the pattern Thank you for picking up on this error, I’ll have this amended in the written pattern. I hope it didn’t cause too much confusion for you.

I tried this about 5 times. I just couldn’t follow where the stitches went after the first row. You made it look easy….
