Simple Seed Stitch Border Coaster Pattern

So I was working on a sampler of coasters to decide what would work best in my house. When making coasters, I started making up some things up instead of just following other patterns. This coaster is very simple to knit, and I figured that I might as well share the pattern with y'all.

  • Size 6 knitting needles
  • gauge: 6 sts/inch, 15 rows/2 inches over stockinette
  • yarn needle to weave in loose ends
  • worsted weight wool (1 50 g ball can make multiple coasters)
  • Finished Size: 3.75 stitches Square
The Pattern
  • Cast on 23 sts
  • Work 4 rows in seed stitch: K1, *P1, K1* repeat from * across
  • RS Row: K1, P1, K1, P1, K15, P1, K1, P1, K1
  • WS Row: K1, P1, K1, P17, K1, P1, K1
  • Repeat the RS and WS rows until you have completed a total of 26 rows completed
  • Work 3 rows in seed stitch: K1, *P1, K1* repeat from * across
  • Bind off, keeping with seed stitch pattern (K1, *P1, K1* repeat from * across)
  • Weave in loose ends
  • Block if the coaster is curling.

The coaster may curl up, but it was able to lay flat without blocking. Blocking eliminated the curling completely.

  1. Im just starting out as a knitter, and have been working on washcloths/scarfs... this is the first time i've seen a pattern for a coaster and its so simple but I never thought about that!! Great idea :)

  2. Coasters are great for early projects, you will get a lot of satisfaction from finishing a project quickly.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. You're very welcome. Happy Knitting!

  5. Just wondering why you chose wool, as I would think they would need to be washed from time to time. What about cotton or acrylic?

    1. Great Question! I chose wool because that is the yarn that I had on hand. Cotton or acrylic would also work well for this pattern.

  6. This could also be a scrubbie!

    1. Great idea! I might make it a bit bitter, but it would make a great scrubbie :)

  7. Is it okay if I sell the coasters I make from this as long as I credit you and don't sell the pattern?

    1. Yes you may sell the coasters, but you may not distribute the pattern in any way. (Feel free to link to it all you want, though!)

      Cheers, Rebecca

  8. Do you have a pattern for a knitted leaf coaster that you could share with me.

  9. What weight yarn do you use?

  10. I'm actually having a difficult time with this. I can't find good information on his to actually knit RS WS all I'm finding is good to tell the difference between the two. Maybe it's just me but this is confusing.
