I have been super obsessed with grey’s lately… especially for my home! I’ve been wanting to make some buffalo plaid coasters to match as well and that’s how this design started.
I’ve included in this post on how to make the buffalo plaid, the mug rug variation, and the granite (solid color) coasters. These would be great for markets since they can be used year round and are quick to make! I like to put 2 of the buffalo plaid and one of each in complimenting colors of the granite coaster. Makes a great 4 piece set!
I’ve also seen mug rugs floating around and I am OBSESSED! Perfect for photos and so so cute. For the variation I just added an extra set of squares to make it a little longer and a cute fringe. Boho is super popular right now!
If grey isn’t your jam you could definitely use different color schemes, just make color A the middle color between the darker and the lighter ones you choose. Seriously, the possibilities are endless!
I decided to use cotton for this pattern because I feel like it holds up a little better and wouldn’t pill as much when coming in contact with liquid. If you don’t have any acrylic should be ok! I used dk (weight 3) so the coasters aren’t too thick but still protect surfaces. My favorite right now is paintbox yarns cotton dk from Lovecrafts.com. They usually have coupons and sales on their website! Each skein has 137 yards so you can get a couple sets out of them. Hope you enjoy!

Farmhouse Plaid Coasters
- Cotton Dk weight (3) in three complimentary colors. I used Paintbox yarns cotton dk.
- Color A: stormy grey (16yds)
- Color B: paper white (8yds)
- Color C: slate grey (8yds)
- G hook
- Sharp scissors
- Tapestry needle
- Sc- single crochet
- Ch- chain
- St- stitch
- ss- slip stitch
- We will be carrying over the yarn that isn’t being used by crocheting over it with the other color. To switch colors, insert hook into next st, pull up a loop, grab a loop of the next color and pull through 2 loops on hook.
- When changing colors at the end of the row, I flip the work in the opposite direction so I can tuck the other color underneath better.
- Color B and C can be traded for this pattern and it still looks great! Additional yardage is needed for the mug rug variation.
- When changing colors, you can gently pull on the tails of the yarn to keep stitches snug and threads hidden.
- () at the end of the row indicate how many stitches should be in the row. There are no decreases or increases in this project.
Gauge isn’t crucial for this project; your coaster should be approx. 4.5” x 4.75”
Intermediate. This project can be a little tricky with the color changes, but the stitches are beginner friendly if you are feeling confident!
Let’s get started!
Starting with color A, ch 21.
Row 1: Skip the first ch, and sc across, ch 1, turn. (20)
Row 2: Sc in the next 4 st but before finishing the last sc start color B, sc 4 st of color B, change and then sc 4 of color A, change and then sc 4 of color B, change and then sc 4 of color A, ch 1, turn. (20)
Rows 3-4: Repeat Row 2.
Row 5: Sc 4 with color A, sc 4 of color B, sc 4 of color A, sc 4 of color B, sc 4 of color A but change to color C at the end of the row, ch 1, turn.
Row 6: Sc 4 in color C, change to color A then sc 4, sc 4 of color C, Sc 4 of color A, sc 4 of color C, ch 1, turn.
Row 7-8: Repeat Row 6.
Row 9: Sc 4 in color C, change to color A then sc 4, sc 4 of color C, sc 4 of color A, sc 4 of color C but change to color A at the end of the row, ch 1, turn.
Row 10-13: Repeat Rows 2-5
Rows 14-17: Repeat Rows 6-9
Rows 18-20: Repeat Rows 2-4
Row 21: Repeat Row 5 but at the end of the row do not change color, stay on color A, and ch 1.
Row 22: Sc across the row with color A. Do not tie off and continue onto the border.
Sc in same stitch and evenly sc around the outside of the coaster, putting 2 sc in the corners. After you get all the way around, ss into the first sc and tie off. Hide all threads.
Gently block your coaster to help it from curling. Enjoy!
Mug Rug Variation
Follow the pattern until row 20
Row 21: Repeat Row 5
Row 22-24: Repeat rows 6-9
Row 25: Sc across the row with color A. Do not tie off and continue onto the border.
Sc in same st and evenly sc down the side of your coaster. At the corner, sc 1 and ss 1 in the same st. Ss across the bottom of the coaster. In the last st, ss 1 and sc in the same st. Sc up the last side, sc in the corner and ss to the first st of the row. Cut and tie off, hide all threads.
Cut 44 4” strips of Color A. I used a business card and wrapped it around 44 times, then cut off on the side for even and quick strips. Attach 2 in every other stitch on each of the short ends. 11 sets of fringes on each end. Trim to even out fringe.
Gently block the coaster to help it lay flat. Enjoy!
You can use any colors, I used colors A and C for mine. Total was 28 yds.
Gauge isn’t important, but finished square was approx. 4.5” x 4.5”
- Sc- single crochet
- Ch- chain
- St- stitch
- ss- slip stitch
- When sc over the ch and into the st from the previous row, sc loosely so it keeps the row flat and doesn’t create bumps.
Row 1: Skip first ch, sc in each st across, ch 1, turn. (18)
Row 2: *Sc, ch 1, skip st* repeat ** across the row, sc in last st, ch 1, turn. (18)

Row 27: *Sc in first st, sc over ch and into the st from the stitch below* Repeat ** across the row, sc in last st. Continue onto the border.
