Hello! Happy Tuesday to you all out there. Do you like mugs of cocoa overflowing with whipped cream? Because I definitely do! That’s one of the reasons why I’ve been thinking about makin’ these coasters for a while, in fact they’re based off a pair of earrings I made a couple of years ago. I’ll update with the how-do on the earrings too, just give me some time. 😀 Over all, I’m working a lot on some patterns, for free and for purchase, that I will be releasing over the next coupe of months. It’s good, you know, to crochet so much. Or at least, it is for me. My brain just won’t quit thinking about things. With my husband in the military we might be moving again, next year, but it’s ever present in my head. A year! I still have a year and, yet, here I am already thinking about it. *sigh* I need more crochet, keeps my mind busy.
Off to the pattern, yes?
These are super simple coasters that you only need two colors of cotton yarn and a G size crochet hook.

You can purchase an ad-free downloadable pdf of this pattern in my Ravelry shop.

  • Aran/ size 4/ medium weight yarn
    • less than 1 oz/48 yds
    • 2 colors
    • I like to use cotton for coasters
    • I used Sugar and Cream
  • US G (4.25 mm) crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle


  • 19 dcs x 9 rows = 4.5″ (although it’s not entirely critical)

  • Sc: Single crochet
  • Sc2tog: Single crochet two sts together

  • This pattern is worked in 2 sections – the cup is worked first (including the handle) and then the whipped topping is added on top. All sections are worked back and forth, with a turn at the beginning/ end of the row, with the exception for of the border around the cup before you make the handle.
  • The ch-1 at the beginning of the rows does not count as a stitch.
  • Color A is the cup and color B is the whipped topping in the photos here.
  • Around in the handle section means work into the space below the ch-10.

Mug of Cocoa Coaster Crochet Pattern Instructions

Row 1: A: Ch 13, turn, sc into the second ch from the hook and across – 12 scs
(RS) Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc 3 times into the first st, sc once into the next 10 sts, sc 3 times into the last st – 16 scs
Rows 3 – 11: Ch 1, turn, sc into each st across – 16 scs
Row 12: Ch 1, rotate and sc into the edge sc all the way around to the other edge, slip st into the first st – 34 scs
Do not fasten off, continue to the handle.

A: Turn, (you will be working down the side of the cup) slip st into the first 2 sts, ch 10, skip the next 6 scs, slip st into the next st, ch 1, turn, sc 7 times around the ch, hdc 4 times around the ch, sc 2 more times around the ch.
Fasten off. Use the tail following the final sc on the handle to secure the top of the handle to the mug.
Otherwise, weave in ends as you normally would.

Whipped topping
Row 1: B: With the RS facing you (which is the side where all the scs from row 12 of the cup are facing up), pull up a loop in the top right st, ch 1, sc into the next 16 sts – 16 scs
Row 2: Turn, ch 1, sc2tog the first two sts, sc across the next 12 sts, sc2tog the last two sts – 14 scs
Row 3: Turn, ch 1, sc 4 times into the first st, skip 3 sts, [2 dc, 2 tr, dc, hdc] into the next st, skip 4 sts, [hdc, dc, 2 tr, 2 dc] into the next st, skip 3 sts, sc 4 times into the last st – 8 scs, 6 dcs, 4 trs, 2 hdcs
Fasten off, weave in all ends.

Ta da! Super easy, right? I see this as a decoration on pillows, myself, because nothing is better during the colder months (although they’re many months away for me) than a delicious hot cup of cocoa. Well, if we’re noting counting mulled cider or a hot toddy. 😀

Take care!
