When I was working up my round Boho Bobble Coasters, I couldn’t help but crochet some square ones too. They still have that boho flair with bobbles and fringe, but they’re square! Fun, right?

[[Check out my round-up of 16 free coaster and mug rug patterns!]]

I used Lily Sugar ‘n Cream cotton yarn in “Light Blue,” but you can use any worsted weight cotton that you have in your stash. Like the round Boho Bobble Coasters, these babies are quick and don’t use much yarn! You only need about 35 yards per coaster.

You can make a set of all square bobble coasters, or you can mix them in with the round ones. The two shapes look adorable together! I always love a good monochromatic blue color scheme, but a rainbow set with several colors would be great too. Or all neutrals? White or cream would be so simple and chic.

Okay y’all, let’s get to the crocheting part so you can start working on a set of these bobble coasters!

Adding the Fringe:

Cut 68 short pieces of yarn (~3.5 inches long). I used a gift card as a template (top left picture).

Push your hook through a stitch. Loop two pieces of yarn onto your hook (top right) and pull through the stitch. Loop the yarn over your hook again and pull it through the starting loop (bottom left).

Add fringe to every other stitch (bottom right), all the way around the coaster. You’ll have eight pieces of fringe on each side and nine pieces of fringe on the top and bottom.

Using a small comb, brush out the fringe and unravel the yarn. I found this worked best if I combed on a soft surface (e.g. a couch pillow or leg).

Using scissors, trim the fringe to about half an inch long.
