Blue flower coasters


I don't have too much time for blogging now and as the spring comes fast, I don't even have that much time for crafting. Of course I am not sad at all. We all have to fill up a little bit :)

So now I would like to share with you a quick pattern. These roundy flowers could be used as coasters in your table. I think they could be really stylish in spring.


6 petal version:


Materials


  • 1 skein Schachenmayr Catania No. 0121
  • crochet hook size 3,5


Abbreviations


  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slap stitch
  • hdc = half double-crochet stitch
  • dc = double crochet
  • tr = treble crochet stitch

Pattern 

Chain 4 and slip into a circle.
1. row: Ch 2, 6 hdc around the circle.
2. row: Ch 3, 2 dc 1ch into each hdc.
3. row: Ch 2, 2 hdc between to the dc's. (total 24 stitches in the ring)

4. row: Ch 1, 7 dc to the 2nd st and chain with sl st to the 4th st (this will be the first petal), *skip 1 st, 7 dc to the next st, skip 1 st, chain with 1 sl st to the next st*. (6 petals)
OR:
4. row: Ch 1, 7 dc to the 2nd st and chain with sl st to the 4th st (this will be the first petal), *1 sl st, skip 1 st, 7 dc to the next st, skip 1 st, chain with 1 sl st to the next st*. (5 petals)

5. row: Ch 4, 1 tr to the same place, ch 5, chain with sl st to the 4th st of the petal, * ch 5, 2 tr between the petals, ch 5 and chain with a sl st to the 4th st of the petal *.
6. row: Hdc around your coaster. (1 hdc between the tr's, 6 hdc to the chains.)




Happy crocheting! Wish you all happy spring!

  1. I especially like this colour for spring. Very pretty and I have never thought about this before, but the yarn would soak up the condensation that so often happens with cold drinks. Doubly good.
