Some things go well together: peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, bees and honey, and my favorite COFFEE & CROCHET! Starbucks happened to take notice of my love for coffee and sent me some samples of their Core Coffee Series! I frequently stay up late crocheting “just one more row” so this mom of 3 needs multiple cups of coffee to make it through the day 🙂 Of course there is nothing I love more than enjoying my coffee along with a little crochet time. I whipped up some fun crochet coffee mug coasters that would be perfect for a hostess gift and would also work as an appliqué. Or keep them for yourself and use the next time you have company! Free pattern is posted below!
Growing up in Seattle, Starbucks has always been my go-to coffee spot plus you can find many of their coffees (including the ones in this post) available in grocery stores! I had the pleasure of trying the Starbucks® Veranda® blend, Starbucks® House Blend, and the Starbucks® Caffe Verona® blend. The House Blend is my favorite and has been my coffee of choice for some time now but I also really like the lighter more mellow taste of the Veranda Blend. So happy to have found a new favorite! Try them for yourself and let me know which one you like best!

As a new member of the Starbucks Blogger Community I will be posting several Coffee + Crafty posts sporadically over the coming year! I hope you stick around to see my coffee reviews which will always include a new free coffee themed crochet pattern or craft tutorial! Starbucks did not compensate me for this post. All opinions about the coffee and other products are 100% my own!
Ahh I'm excited! I love Starbucks and those coasters are adorable. Can't wait to see what else you've got up your sleeve.

Wendy's Mhaaksels says
Great coasters for coffee-lovers! I'm gonna make them for my daughter and for a dear friend 😉
Thank you so much for the pattern.
Yammie, Starbucks coffee. I have to travel to get a Starbucks, but that keeps this coffee special. The coasters are gorgeous. I'll crochet them for my sun and his wife. They are living in Seattle and they love to drink Starbucks coffee.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a great day, Margaret
Cute coasters!!:) Thanks for sharing the pattern!!
Sometime back I had made cup shaped motifs but without the coffee. If interested, you can see here
Those are so adorable!!!
Love this idea for a nice gift with a friends favorite coffee! Thanks for the pattern!

Anna Eddleman says
can you explain this row=Row 13: DC, HDC, SC in next 8, HDC, DC, there are 12 stitches and you are only working in 10
Beth Cook says
She means DC in the first stitch. HDC in the second stitch. SC in the next 8 stitches. HDC in the 11th stitch. DC in the 12th sitch. It was confusing in parts for me also. Lol
Theresa M says
Thank you! I was having a little trouble with that row myself!
OH! I get it now, that explains row 13 and why my pattern isn’t working out!
These came out adorable! I made smaller versions and turned them into fridge magnets.
Thank you!!!! I was so confused.
Teresa A Barnes says
Thank you so much for clarifying that for me!!!!! I was list and kept messing up.
Teresa A Barnes says
Lost… not list Sorry
I know this was a long time ago, but just wanted to say thanks for this clarification. I just made my first of these and really love the design. Great idea!
Thank you!!! I was a bit confused here too. I appreciate your filling us in.
Barbara Jeter says
Haveing trouble with this part too.Hope this helps me too. This is 10-18-2017.
Rowena Satterfield says
Thanks for explaining this I have crocheted for over 60 years and had trouble with this row too I finally did it my way but knew it was not right, now I can do it right, thanks again.
Becky51 Murphy says
Thank you also. I was confuse d also
Thank you for that clarification Beth!!!
Hd,dc,plus 8 sc,hd,dc
Omg I have the same question…and if U work the 3 stitches it Should be 9 not 8, but either way it doesn’t equal the 12 stitches in the previous row.
Melanie @ bear rabbit bear says
How cute! I think you could come up with a pattern to go along with any theme!
Nancy Bandzuch says
that pour over brewer is incredible! Why have I never seen one of those before? Ordering now!
I made one of these in about… IDK… 20 minutes! It's super cute and OMG soooo easy!!! Thank you! Your blog is one of my favorites. 🙂
Did you have any challenges with this? A couple of us wind up with our handles on the other side–and we can’t flip it because we have stitches showing from the color change on the back side (because it was done in BLO).
If yours came out correctly, might you be able to point out what I’m doing incorrectly? I just love these–but I’m just a tad frustrated!
I think the confusion comes when you don’t fasten off your mug color yarn. You leave the yarn hanging there and introduce the brown, but when you finish row 14, it says to fasten off the brown color and turn. Thing is, the yarn you still have left hanging there is on the other side, So you really don’t turn it there. Once you fasten off the brown, stay on the same side you’re working on and pick up the yarn of the main color that’s still hanging there (to the right side). That way, when you get back around you can follow the rest of the directions and your handle will be on the correct side.

from one coffee lover to another, you just perk me with delight…love your crochet style.
Jamie W says
Hi, I am going to be making these in cotton. I was wondering if you could tell me how much yarn I would need to buy. Thanks so much.
These are super cute! I’ve made one already, but it didn’t turn out exactly like the picture. My handle is on the opposite side. I could flip it over, but the other side has stitches shown from the main mug color. Is there a step I am missing somewhere? Could anyone help explain what I may be doing wrong?
Did you ever figure this out? I’ve got the same issue–the handle winds up on the opposite side and and I can’t flip it because of the same reason you stated! I keep trying to figure out what I’ve done wrong…
Can anyone help us/me?
Virgie Villescaz says
Love starbucks and these coffee cups will go excellent with my starbucks coffee.
Thank you and can’t wait for future patterns.
Ok, I think these are so cute but I’m a little confused on row 13. Do I crochet all of those stitches (dc,hdc,sc) in each of the next 8 stitches or do I (dc,hdc,sc) in separate stitches for the next 8 stitches?
Miranda F says
Did you ever figure this out??
My handle is also on the wrong side and at the top of the side of the cup not one row down as it looks in the picture. I thought my handle was backward at first because I’m crocheting it left handed (a lot of my stuff is backward to the patterns I try).
My husband is a big coffee drinker. He drinks a whole pot before he can get going in the morning. Lots of great coffee present ideas, and as I am learning to crochet I may have a got at your cup mats. They are really cute.
I just made one of these with some leftover cotton yarn I have. So cute, and once I read the pattern through a few times, I figured out how to do it correctly. Thanks for sharing!
mary beth says
Cute but stuck on the handle as well. I’m confused about the very last detail in this instruction..chain 8 and….I’m lost right there. I wish I could figure this out.
Susan Huckaby says
You need to skip 5 of the sc on the cup itself, then slip stitch into the 6th sc. . . At least that is how I read it. . .
Susan Huckaby says
Thanks for the coaster pattern!! I used Peaches & Creme 100% cotton to make a set of 4 for my daughter when she moved into her new home, and I am making them in a variety of colors for my Curves members and Sunday School class members!! I did change the pattern slightly. . . I made 2 “cups” and then sc them together and then added the handle. . . This makes them a little thicker, thus more absorbent. . .
cheers, I had troubles with this too., thanks so much. making them as prizes at my Curves center.
Beverly Graham says
Love the coffee cups…Perfect for my granddaughter as her kitchen is done in coffee cups and coffee. The best ones I have seen. Thank you.
Such a cute coaster, but mine…not so much! Lol
Do you have a pdf for this pattern for me to see it better? Would love it if you do… Thank you… Great pattern!!!
I love this pattern!!! Do you have it in a pdf? Would love to keep it in my iBook… Thank you!
Miranda F says
Hi there, I was just hoping you could please explain Row 13 to me. It’s a little bit confusing????
Row 13: dc in first st, hdc in next st, sc in next 8 st, hdc in next, dc in last st.
I’m responding because I was a little confused by it, too! 🙂
I made this pattern and it turned out perfectly the first time….then I’ve made about six more and they all curl. Do you have any idea what I am doing wrong?
lucy hubert says
They are sooooo cute! At the risk of sounding dumb, how do I print the pattern?
Press Print this! It will download then printer out at home or library or friends.
Good luck with getting the pattern to start.
Starbucks Coffee and Coaster
I am still new at crocheting, My problem is now stuck on row 13 and finishing the pattern.
If anyone has made this please help, it is so cute right now.
I would really hate to stop and tear out the work and give up.
I found when I am learning any new project Videos/Diagrams/Charts – The extra know how
I am better at reading charts with the symbols or viewing a video on how to make than reading written pattern on some harder projects in crocheting, sewing and quilting.
Love this fast little project! Thank you for the pattern.
I love this pattern!!! I want to make some as a going away gift for one of my teachers. She loves coffee haha!!
Is anyone able to explain the color change? How do you drop the main color and then pick it back up again? I taught myself crochet and I guess I’ve not learned that trick yet lol.
Kaela, Just wanted to THANK YOU for explaining how to do row 13…I think this row has alot of us confused. 🙂 THANKS again for helping us who couldn’t figure it out. This is really a cute idea for us coffee lovers 🙂
Heather Macias says
So cute, Sarah! I was thinking these would be really cute as potholders in my kitchen. I have a coffee/cappuccino kitchen window curtain, and coffee themed kitchen towels. I am thinking of using a thicker cotton yarn and a larger hook and making them into matching potholders that hang on the cupboard handles from the coffee mug handles. 😀 Such a cute idea, thanks for sharing your pattern!

I am going to try it for a potholder. Thanks for your idea!
Katherine M Fridirci says
What adorable coasters!! My daughter is a Barista & Coffee Master at Starbucks, and will absolutely love these when I make them for her!!
Hey does the chain one (and chain two of row 12) count as stitches? I’ve made this pattern twice, one where the stitch counts and another where it doesn’t. They seem pretty similar and helped me with row 13. If the ch 2 counts as a dc, then the next stitch is a hdc, then the 8 sc, then hdc and then a dc in the previous row ch 1.
Normally when putting in sts after a ch 1 or 2, the immediate next stitch doesn’t count, so that’s why I’m asking if the ch 1 or 2 counts toward the overall stitch count.
Mary Jones says
Thank You so much. The coffee mug coasters are just adorable. They were really quick to hook up and the results just make me giggle with joy!!! I made a set of four. I will definitely make more but this set will be mine. Thanks again!!
I am so confused on the handle! I chained 8, skipped 5 stitches and joined it with slip stitch. chained 1 then turned made a SC. Now I am at make 12 HDC around chain 8
Cindy Flynn says
Cute patterns… My husband is a Gold member of Starbucks… It’s like a hobby for him, so these will fit his theme…
I don’t understand row 13 and 14. Can you explain better? I admit I’m not good with patterns.
Does it mean the Dc,HDc and Sc are to be done in each of the next 8 stitches?
Row 13: DC, HDC, SC in next 8, HDC, DC
–it means: dc, hdc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, hdc, dc
Carmen Renee Rosario says
THANK YOU+!! I was breaking my brain over that!!!
Kimberly Yoder says
How do you know where the back loop is when stitching around the edges?
Hi just wanted to say thanks for this pattern – will be making this for my coffee-loving dad for pa-ther’s day thanks
Kay Lundgren says
I crochet for a charity and was wondering if I could make them to sell at a fall fundraiser to off set some of their costs when they package up their donations. I have made a set for myself and more to hang on the wall above my kitchen sink.
Trudy Gohlg says
Thank you for the adorable coaster pattern.
This pattern is great and so cute! I had a little trouble with the handle too until I saw that after you slip stitch over the brown, you continue around the whole cup. Then you’re set to add the handle on the correct side.
Mine came out really small… I used Vanna’s Choice and a size H hook. Does anyone have a finished measurement to see if I’m off somehow?
Mine came out 10cmx11cm, I used 4-ply milk cotton and 4.0mm hook
Do you have a video where I can actually see you make it?
Do you mind if I sell these? not the pattern..but the finished product.
I love this soooo much!!
Really nice pattern. I made mine bigger, started with 8 sc instead of 6, and put an extra two rows at the top before the curved row since it does come out kind of small, especially if you favour oversized mugs, like I do. Only real complaint I have (aside from the fact that coasters shouldn’t be made with acrylic, it doesn’t absorb condensation properly, so it’s not useful for cold drinks, and can melt under heat, although a mug really shouldn’t get that hot, but still…) is that the hook size in mm is not given. All my hooks are mm, it’s a far more accurate sizing, and any time one of the older formats is used I have to go and check to see what the conversion is. I’ve been using a 4.5 mm for mine, anyway, though. I rarely use
oops, cut myself off there. I was going to say, I rarely use the ‘proper’ sizing for worsted weight yarns; I guess I crochet loosely.
Where you wrote “Make 2 slip stitches, chain 8, skip 5 stitches and join with slip stitch, slip stitch in next, chain 1 and turn, SC, make 12 HDC around chain 8, join with SC, slip stitch in next, fasten off and weave in ends,” do you mean to attach it to the mug body?
