Spring has sprung! (finally!!!) What a perfect time to start thinking about some Mother’s Day gifts, Spring Parties, birthdays, that special friend or aunt. I usually make these in sets of 3 to give as gifts. You can add a cute mug or some candles to the gift as well! This crochet flower coaster tutorial is super cute!!
These are typically made with 100% cotton yarn (I use “I Love This Cotton” yarn that I get at Hobby Lobby or Michaels.), it’s super soft AND absorbent (which you will need if you use these as coasters). But, for demonstration purposes, I used hot pink chunky yarn in the video tutorial so you can see the stitches easier.
- crochet hook size H – Available here: Crochet Hook Sets
- 1 skein of “I Love this Cotton” yarn (any color!) – Available here: Yarn Choices
- yarn needle
- dc= double crochet
- sl st = slip stitch
- ch = chain
- V-S = V-stitch
- st = stitch
Begin with a chain 4, then slip-stitch (sl-st) close to first chain. (Create small circle)
Round 1: CH2, 10 DC in ring, sl-st to join (10 stitches)
Round 2: CH3, DC in first ST, V-stitch in each ST around (DC, CH 1, DC all in the same ST), 20 stitches, sl-st to join
Round 3: CH2, DC in first st (CH 1 from V-st below), CH 1, *2 DC in CH 1 space from Round 2, CH 1*, repeat from * around, sl-st to join
Round 4: CH3, 4 DC in first CH 1 space from Round 3, sl-st into space between 2 DC from from Round 3, *5 DC in next CH 1 space, sl-st into space between 2 DC*, repeat from * around ((for the very last sl-st, sl-st to the last DC instead of in between the last 2 DC)), finish off, weave ends.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Warning…making these little flower crochet coasters can be addicting….
