Make a set of crochet farmhouse coasters with a boho vibe to decorate your living space!
“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.”Laura Ingalls Wilder
Fresh air and sunshine go together like…farmhouse and…bohemian!
What do you think of when you hear the term old-fashioned? When I think of that term, I think of simpler times before life was complicated by the fast-paced society of today. Days filled with sunshine come to mind where the laundry is blowing in the breeze as kids play hide-and-seek among it. I also think of farm settings where Dorothy learned that there is no place like home. Perhaps this is why farmhouse and bohemian decor is so popular right now. Farmhouse decor is all about neutral colors and clean lines to represent that simple life. Similarly, boho vibes exude light airy colors and pieces that invoke a free-spirited feeling.
Welcome our guest designer!
Today I am so excited to welcome Rachel of Cozy Nooks Designs to my blog! She has designed and written a modification of my Boho Crochet Coaster pattern, and I invited her over to share it with all of you! I have long admired the aesthetic of her designs as she represents so well that Farmhouse Boho vibe. I hope that you will enjoy making her crochet farmhouse coasters, and as a result, may it remind you to take a step back from the busyness of life to…
…take in all of life’s simple joys.
Hey Guys! My name is Rachel from Cozy Nooks Designs. I am so excited to be featured on The Plush Pineapple’s blog. Feel free to follow me on Instagram and subscribe to my blog for free patterns and some upcoming giveaways I will be doing!
These coasters were born because I have fallen in love with the ever-popular macramé trend. I love the simple, boho vibes of macramé, but I have yet to try my hand at it. I decided to try to duplicate the look with my favorite craft – crochet!
Have you heard the new word farmhemian yet? It is a combination of my two favorite design styles – farmhouse and bohemian. Farm-hemian is the result of combining these two words which is why I named the coasters the Farmhemian Coasters. I think this word describes my house fairly well as my decor is a mash of the two styles together.
So let’s get to making!

- US G/4.0 mm crochet hook
- 25 yards of cotton (weight 4) yarn – Lily Sugar ‘n Cream or another stiff cotton works best
- Tapestry Needle
- ch – chain
- sc – single crochet
- sl st – slip stitch
- st/sts – stitch/stitches
8 sc sts, 8 rows = 2”
4” by 4” not including fringe
- The ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
- To unravel the fringe, you can “comb” your needle through the strands rather than unraveling by hand.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc across, turn. (16 sts)
Rows 2-13: ch 1, sc across, turn. (16 sts)
If adding a stripe, switch colors.
Rows 14-16: ch 1, sc across, turn. (16 sts)
Change back to main color.
Rows 17-18: ch 1, sc across, turn. (16 sts)
Fasten off, weave in ends. Block project, so it lays flat.
Step 1: Cut 70, 3.5” strips.
Step 2: Using your hook, attach fringe to each outer sc st on the bottom and top.
Step 3: Attach fringe to the sides by putting one fringe in each row.
Step 4: Attach fringe to each corner again at a diagonal. Corners should have three fringes.
Step 5: Trim fringe to desired length and comb needle through each fringe strand to unravel.
And that’s it! This is a quick, addicting project you can make to add some farmhemian flair to your style. Make sure you use #FarmhemianCoasters on Instagram for a chance to be featured.
