    Creating a square crochet coaster is a simple and fun project that can be completed by beginners and advanced crocheters alike. Below is a basic pattern to get you started. You can customize it with different yarn colors and patterns once you're comfortable with the basics.

    Materials Needed:
    • Worsted weight cotton yarn (any color)
    • Crochet hook (size H/5.0 mm recommended)
    • Scissors
    • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
    Basic Square Coaster Pattern:
    Abbreviations:
    • ch: chain
    • sc: single crochet
    • sl st: slip stitch
    Instructions:
    1. Foundation Chain:
      • Ch 16. (This will create a coaster about 4 inches square. You can adjust the number of chains to make a larger or smaller coaster.)
    2. Row 1:
      • Sc in the second ch from the hook and in each ch across. (15 sc)
      • Ch 1, turn.
    3. Rows 2-15:
      • Sc in each stitch across. (15 sc)
      • Ch 1, turn.
    4. Border:
      • Once you've completed the last row, do not fasten off.
      • Ch 1, turn.
      • Sc evenly around all four sides of the coaster, placing 3 sc in each corner to keep the edges from curling.
      • Join with a sl st to the first sc of the border.
    5. Finishing:
      • Fasten off and weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.
    Optional Variations:
    • Color Changes: For a striped coaster, change colors at the end of any row.
    • Textured Stitch: Instead of using sc, try using half double crochet (hdc) or double crochet (dc) for a different texture.
    • Edging: Add a decorative edge by using picot stitch, crab stitch, or shell stitch for the border.
    Tips:
    • Using cotton yarn is recommended for coasters because it absorbs moisture well and is easy to wash.
    • Ensure your stitches are tight enough to create a dense fabric, which will help the coaster be more absorbent and durable.
    Example Pattern with Color Change:
    1. Foundation Chain:
      • Ch 16.
    2. Row 1:
      • Sc in the second ch from the hook and in each ch across. (15 sc)
      • Ch 1, turn.
    3. Rows 2-5:
      • Sc in each stitch across. (15 sc)
      • At the end of Row 5, change to a new color.
      • Ch 1, turn.
    4. Rows 6-10:
      • Sc in each stitch across with the new color. (15 sc)
      • At the end of Row 10, change back to the original color.
      • Ch 1, turn.
    5. Rows 11-15:
      • Sc in each stitch across. (15 sc)
      • Ch 1, turn.
    6. Border:
      • Sc evenly around all four sides of the coaster, placing 3 sc in each corner.
      • Join with a sl st to the first sc of the border.
    7. Finishing:
      • Fasten off and weave in any loose ends.
    Feel free to experiment with different stitches, colors, and borders to make your coasters unique!
