A free pattern for some pretty crochet flower coasters. They are like bright mini mandalas! You can use them as colourful floral coasters to decorate your table, (they would look amazing outside for Summer dining) or make a set to gift.
They would also look amazing on a bag, a hat or embellishing a baby blanket.
This project uses very small amounts of scrap yarn. Cotton yarn works best for these coasters as it is sturdy and washable. I made my samples in a light sportsweight cotton yarn so my coasters are small (approx 3in across). You can use DK weight or Worsted weight yarn and a matching hook to make yours and the size will increase. Experiment and see what is in your stash!
I suggest DK weight yarn and a 4mm hook, Worsted weight yarn and a 5mm hook.
- Small amounts of Cotton Yarn and matching hook
- Yarn used to make these flowers – Scheepjes Catona and a 3mm crochet hook.
- Yarn Needle to weave in threads

Flowers/motifs are approx. 3″ when using the suggested yarn weight and hook. You could use a heavier weight yarn and matching hook to make larger motifs, just see what is in your stash!

Hi on your instagram page you have a pink and grey shell still square how do i find the pattern for it please
Hi! I am in the process of writing it up (and I need to take some picture tutorials) so I should have it on the blog in a few days. Thanks so much for your interest!
Cute coaster! The picture seems to show 6 rounds but the pattern has only 5. To my eye round 5 might be sc’s all around? Would love some clarification. Thanks.
Hi! The pattern has 5 rounds. The final round has picots which may appear like an extra round?
In the special stitch section you describe a DC2tog however I don’t see it in the actual pattern. I’m wondering if the second row should have the DCtog instead of 2dc together? thank you, I love this fun pattern!!
Hmm….I see that dc2tog is included in the special stitches but it is not used in the pattern. I do need to update some of my older patterns and I will do this one first! Thank you for pointing that out x
I noticed that, too. One of the pictures shows a round before the picot round. The other pics don’t show that round.
