Fancy, easy, and adorable – these Fancy Puff Coasters are a beautiful addition to any living room (or any other room of your house for that matter). What’s even better? They’re super easy to make and will be done in no time!
Because this project uses so little yarn, it’s a great stash buster project and an easy one to get a hang of! The coasters look great on any coffee table, side table, kitchen table – wherever you need them really.
Puff stitches aren’t the only feature of this coaster – the other part being the beautiful clean border on these! After the puff stitches are complete, using a combination of single crochet stitches and slip stitches, a border will be completed to really give the coaster a nice clean finish.
You will need the following:
- Knit Pick’s Dishie Yarn (1 ball)
- US H/8 – 5.00 mm Hook
- Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends
Note on Yarn: While the materials state 1 ball of yarn, you will not need a full ball of yarn. Each coaster comes out to just under 25 yards of yarn - so if you have scraps, all you need is about 25 yards of yarn total!
While not required, I chose to use Knit Pick’s Dishie for it’s wide range of colors, softness, and durability. You can also choose to make this in any other cotton yarn (such has Lily Sugar n’ Cream) as well. I’ve also seen coasters made with acrylic yarn as well, but I personally always choose to use cotton for it’s absorbency and wash-ability.
This pattern uses two main techniques, the magic loop, and an invisible join. The Puff Stitch is also a prominent stitch in this pattern (it’s actually our main stitch). You can find written instructions for this stitch below.
Each coaster comes out to about 4.25″ in diameter.

Create a magic ring, Ch 3
Inside of your magic ring, 6 PF. Sl St into top of Ch 3.
Total 6 puff stitches
Ch 3, 1 PF into same St.
In each Ch 1 space between previous round’s PSts, 2 PSts. This will increase the round. Continue making 2 PSts in each of the Ch 1 spaces from previous round until you reach the first PSt of the round.
1 PSt in same St as first PSt. Sl St into top of Ch 3. Each Ch 1 space of the previous round should have 2 PSts worked into it.
Note: You can camouflage the Ch 3 at the beginning of the round a bit by working the first PSt of each round behind the Ch 3 bar. It may look funny at first, but it should even out as you continue through the rounds.
Total 12 puff stitches
Ch 3, 1 PSt into same St.
*In next Ch 1 space between previous round’s PSts, 1 PS. In next Ch 1 space, 2 PSts. Repeat from * until you reach the first PSt.
