A Crochet Monstera Leaf Coaster is a fun and creative crochet project that allows you to make charming leaf-shaped coasters for your home. Monstera leaves, known for their distinctive split patterns, are a trendy and tropical design element that can add a touch of nature-inspired decor to your living space. Here’s a brief description of how to create this crochet coaster:

Materials Needed:

  1. Crochet hook (size will depend on your yarn weight)
  2. Green yarn (choose a shade that mimics Monstera leaves)
  3. Scissors
  4. Yarn needle
  5. Stitch markers (optional)


1. Choose Your Yarn and Hook:

  • Select a suitable green yarn that you like for your Monstera leaf. The thickness of your yarn will determine your crochet hook size. Follow the label recommendations.

2. Begin the Magic Ring:

  • Start by creating a magic ring (also known as a magic circle) to form the center of your Monstera leaf. This will make the center hole look neat.

3. Chain Stitches:

  • Make a series of chain stitches from the magic ring to form the main stem of your leaf. The length of your chain stitches will determine the size of your leaf. You can start with around 15-20 chains.

4. Foundation Rows:

  • Begin working on the foundation rows by crocheting various stitches such as single crochet, half double crochet, or double crochet into the chains you created. These stitches will form the main body of the leaf.

5. Increasing Stitches:

  • As you work along the foundation rows, increase the number of stitches in each row, creating the characteristic split shape of a Monstera leaf. You can do this by adding multiple stitches into one stitch, typically at the beginning and end of each row.

6. Shaping the Splits:

  • To give the leaf its signature split pattern, create a V-shape in the center by crocheting fewer stitches in the middle rows. This will make it look like the leaf is dividing into sections.

7. Edging:

  • Once you’ve achieved the desired size and shape for your Monstera leaf, create a neat edge by crocheting single crochet stitches around the entire leaf. This will give it a polished look.

8. Finishing:

  • Fasten off the yarn and weave in any loose ends with a yarn needle.

9. Optional Embellishments:

  • If you want to add even more detail to your Monstera leaf coaster, you can use a lighter shade of green yarn or embroidery floss to stitch on the characteristic holes found in Monstera leaves.

10. Block if Necessary:

  • If your leaf isn’t lying flat, you can block it by gently wetting it, shaping it to the desired form, and allowing it to dry.

Repeat these steps for as many Monstera leaf coasters as you desire. These crochet coasters will not only protect your furniture from beverage condensation but also serve as delightful decorative elements, bringing a touch of tropical elegance to your home. Enjoy your crochet project!
