How to Knit Boho Coasters Free Pattern

Want to be part of the free expression movement?  Ruffle your feathers, grab your knitting needles and let's knit BOHO coasters!

To obtain the Bohemian look, I used natural organic cotton yarn and it won't be the perfect knitting project without the fringes.  Chic style at it's best.

The knitting stitch used, creates a woven look and if you guessed, it is the Linen stitch.

knitting pattern instructions

stitch PATTERN for boho coasters (or mug rugs):

Cast on 20 sts.

Knit as follows:-

Rows 1       - *k1, yfwd, sl1, ybk* to end (last st, wrap the yarn to the back and turn)

2nd Row    - *p1, ybk, sl1, yfwd* to end

Repeat these two rows until you have 24 rows (or until it is long enough for you).

Cast off and weave in ends.


I added the fringes to my side edges (where the little bobbles form, ie one bobble for every 2 rows).

Cut 24 x 4" strands of yarn.

Fold and place folded end through the edges of the coaster, with your crochet hook. Pull the ends through and push the knot firmly against your fabric.

Trim the ends.

You can block the coasters before adding the fringes.

to wrap it up:

The Linen stitch is an easy stitch to knit and the coasters are really a beginner knitting project.  You will notice from the pattern if you made a mistake.

When I was knitting this up, I sometimes forgot if I had to knit or slip, but you can work it out easily by:

  • counting your stitches - every second stitch should be a knit stitch and
  • the knit stitch will form a "V" and the slip stitch will have a horizontal piece of yarn.

Happy knitting!
