Crochet Pattern and Craft Tutorial for Flower Coasters at ThinkCrafts.com

I have been wanting to make some pretty crochet coasters for a while now, and I finally whipped some up on a whim this past weekend. I’ve been eyeing these ombre coastersflower coasters, and rainbow coasters for a bit, and was eager to try something of my own. This pattern works up quickly, which is always nice because lord knows I have been known to give up on lengthy projects… ;)

DIY Crochet Flower Coasters from ThinkCrafts.com

Stuff You’ll Need:

Cotton Yarn (I used Lily Sugar & Cream in Mod Ombre), Acrylic Yarn in a contrasting color (I used white), Size H (5.0mm) Crochet HookYarn Needle9×12″ Piece of FeltFabric Glue, Sharp Scissors

With your cotton yarn, make a magic ring and ch to secure.

Rnd 1 – ch2, 11 dc into ring, join to top of ch = 12 dc

Rnd 2 – ch1, 2 sc in each dc around, join to first st = 24 sc

Rnd 3 – ch4, *sk 1 sc, [dc, ch1, dc] in next sc*, repeat ten times, [dc, ch1] in same sc as beginning ch, join to top of ch3 = 36 sts

Rnd 4 – ch1, *sk 2 dc, 5 tr into ch sp, sk 2 dc, sc in ch sp*, repeat five times, join to first ch and finish off.

 

Accent –

With your acrylic yarn, slpst in a circle between the third and fourth rows. Finish off with an invisible join. **for a more detailed how-to, see steps 8 & 9 of this tutorial**

 

With your yarn needle, weave in your ends.

 

Now just do that five more times for a set of six coasters!

Add felt to the back of crochet coasters for a sturdier, more polished look. Tutorial at ThinkCrafts.com

To give these coasters a polished and finished look, I backed them with felt! Not only does it make them more durable, but it also hides the ugly “wrong side” of the crochet work. And it’s really, really easy. ;)

 

Lay all six of your coasters out on your piece of felt. They should fit with a little wiggle room. One by one, pick up each coaster, lining all the edges on the wrong side with glue. Make sure you have glue around the entire outside edge and at the center. Firmly press the coaster back onto the felt and repeat this for each coaster. Once the glue has dried, carefully cut around each coaster with sharp scissors. And voila! You’ve got yourself some coasters!

These would make really cute gifts for a housewarming, party hostess, or a bridal shower. And they’re totally customizable depending on what yarn colors you use! This multi-colored yarn is nice, as it makes each coaster a little different on it’s own. How cute would these be for a fun summer party?! :)

    These are beautiful! I’m about to try and put some felt backing on some crochet coasters, but just realised I don’t have any fabric glue…. :/ So going to have to find a way around that haha.
