Fun Flower Coaster

Happy Thursday!

I hope this blog post finds you well...or that when you found this blog post, you are doing know what I mean! I hope that you are happy and healthy!

I was recently part of a handmade coaster swap through Instagram, and found a cute owl coaster pattern to send to my partner.

The pattern for this coaster can be found here.

This got me in the coaster making mood, so last night I decided to make myself one.  But I did not want an owl...I know, I know, they are the 'in' thing right now, but they are not MY thing.  So I didn't know what I wanted, but my water for tea was already on to boil and I needed a coaster FAST!

So, I sat down and just started to crochet and came up with this.

It is very simple, and only takes a few minutes to make.

You will need:
Small amount of 3 different colors of worsted weight yarn
5.0 mm crochet hook
Large needle

ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet


Round 1: ch 4, in 4th ch from hook dc 11 times, sl st in top of ch 3 to form circle.  FO

Round 2: with CB, sl st between any two dc from previous round, ch 3 (counts as first dc) and dc in same space, in next space and in each space around 2 dc, sl st into top of ch 3, FO (24 dc, all worked in the space between the dc from previous round)

Round 3: with CC, slip st into any dc from previous round, ch 1 *hdc in first stitch, 2 hdc in next stitch** repeat from *to** around, DO NOT fasten off (36 hdc)

Round 4: ch 1, *sc in first stitch, skip two stitches, 7 dc in next stitch** repeat from *to** around. sl st into first sc, FO

Sew in your ends and you have cute little flower coaster.

I hope you all enjoy this pattern!

Feel free to use this pattern for personal use.  You may also sell the finished items you make with this pattern, but be sure to reference back to this blog for the pattern.  Thank you kindly!

~Best Wishes~
