Pretty Granny Flower Coasters - Crochet these in fresh cotton colours, perfect for spring...

Hello everyone.  I have a super quick and easy project to share with you today.  Don't you just love the instant gratification from finishing small projects?  These would also make a great gift for someone, or to sell at the craft fair.






An ad free pdf version of this pattern is available in my online stores, thank you for supporting my work...

5mm hook
Darning needle


Size

Small coaster approx. 4.5 inches in diameter (12cm)
Large coaster 6,5 inches (17cm)

Easy 


Abbreviations US Terms (UK conversion)

sc - single crochet (double crochet)
dc - double crochet (treble crochet)
ch – chain
sp - space
st(s) - stitch(es)
sl st - slip stitch





Other notes: I used Scheepjes Cahlista to make my coasters, in colours, Lime, snow White and Cyan, but you can use any cotton Aran / worsted weight yarn to make yours.  

Fasten off after each round and use the photos as a guide to changing colours.  Join new colours with a sl st and if at the end of a round you wish to continue with the same colour sl st into next sp to begin round.  

I like to replace the ch3 at the start of a round with a chainless dc, you can do this if you wish or just use the traditional ch3.

Ch4 and join with sl st to form ring.

Round 1 Ch3 (counts as dc), 11dc into ring, join with sl st to top ch3.  (12dc)
