Knitted Football Coasters


Finally, football season is coming to an end. No more Sundays dictated by when the game is on. Since I will be heading to a friend’s house, I thought I would whip up a cute little hostess gift. Here is the general outline for my stash busting football coasters.

Football Coasters:

Materials: US size 6 needles,  ~30-40 g of worsted weight brown acrylic yarn, ~1 yd of worsted weight white acrylic yarn, tapestry needle (The yarn requirements are dependent on how many coasters you are making.)

Gauge:  5 sts and 8 rows= 1″




kfb= knit into the front and back of stitch

k2tog= knit two sts together

inc1= increase one stitch

Cast on 3 sts.

Row 1: knit all sts

Row 2: k1, inc1, knit to last st, kfb (5 sts)

Repeat Rows 1-2 until there are 11 sts total.

Row 8:  purl across all sts.

Row 9: k1,inc1, knit across to last st, kfb (13 sts)

Continue Rows 8 and 9 until there is a total of 19sts.

Row 16-23: Work in stockinette stitch (p odd rows, k even rows).

Row 24: k1, slip 1, knit 1, psso, knit across to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1 (17sts)

Row 25: Purl across all sts.

Repeat rows 24 and 25 4 times each until there are 11 sts left.

Row 33: k1, slip1, knit 1, psso, knit across to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1 (9 sts)

Row 34: Knit across all sts

Continue Rows 33 and 34 until there are 3 sts left.

Bind off the last 3 sts.

Finishing: With white yarn stitch one long vertical line (~3″)  and 4 short horizontal lines (~1″)to create the laces of the football.

If you would like a thicker coaster make two, place them on top of each other, and sew the edges together.

Hope you enjoy your Superbowl weekend!

    I made these coasters a couple of years ago and they were a hit. Since Superbowl weekend it coming up I thought I would update the pattern. These coasters are a great stash buster that will have you football ready in no time. Enjoy!
