Absolute Beginner Crochet: BOHO Coaster

New to crochet? This project will have you hooked, pun intended!

The BOHO coaster is the project from my crochet class "Modern Crochet for Beginners". Thousands of students have successfully taken this class and made their very first crocheted finished piece, the BOHO coaster. If you're looking for an even deeper dive into the basics of crochet I highly recommend taking this on-demand and online class. Here is what some of my students have said:

This class exceeded my expectations! Loved this class! My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was young (a long time ago!) and this easy-to-follow class helped me regain my skills. I especially liked that there was a project, which left me with a feeling of accomplishment :-) Thank you! Now I want more. -Lisa L.
This was a wonderful class that exceeded my expectations. I came out of the class with 2 coasters I am proud to use in my home!! I had failed prior to this, and it felt great to finally succeed, give this class a chance and you won't regret it.-Lynn C.

As your dedicated crochet teacher, my mission is to demystify the world of yarn and hooks, making crochet as simple as sharing stories with a dear friend. Having been through the twists and turns of my own crochet adventure, I'm here to spill the beans on the tips and tricks I wish I knew right from the start. No more headaches or frogging mishaps – I've got your back!

Boho Coaster:

Start by creating a slip knot. (not sure how to make one? Don't forget the video! HERE)

  1. Ch 17.  Sc in the 2nd ch from the hook and in each ch across. (16)

2. Ch 1, turn.  Sc in each st across. (16)

Now go back and count your stitches. Do you still have 16? If you don't something went wrong. I recommend watching the video to learn how to count and recognize your stitches.

3-15. Repeat row 2. F/o.  

To F/o ch 1 and pull yarn through the loop to secure.  Weave in your ends.

The Fringe:

Cut 6 inch pieces of yarn into groups of 3.  Attach evenly across (about every 2 sts).  See photos below.  Trim the fringe evenly once attached.

You did it!
