Happy Spring Flower Coasters
~ free crochet patterns ~

Are you having a floral-themed birthday party, bridal shower or a celebration party? Looking for some DIY party favors for your guests? Well, these Happy Spring Flower Coasters (free crochet patterns) are just the perfect thing!

Happy Spring Flower Coasters - free crochet pattern by DORIYUMI

Use bright and colorful yarn and bring life to your kitchen/dining table! Mix and match your colors – the possibilities are endless. I used Lily Sugar’n Cream, which is a 100% USA cotton worsted weight yarn, but you may use any yarn and hook you fancy. I chose cotton for its easy care, look and feel and I believe the cotton holds the shape of the coaster better. Bamboo is also a good choice!

Both coasters measure approx. 4.5 inches wide. It’s perfect for a cup, glass, coffee mug or even a vase with beautiful flowers! And while I’ve crocheted them as coasters, there are many other uses such as an embellishment for a blanket or a hat, make a whole bunch and connect them to make an afghan or a table runner, or simply hang several on the wall for decoration!

SUPPLIES

NOTES

  • Coaster measures approx. 4.5 inches wide.
  • Changing colors: Pick up the new color and join by pulling up a loop in the stitch after the sl st join of the previous round.
  • Gauge is not essential – just keep your tension consistent throughout.

ABBREVIATIONS

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
tr = treble crochet
sl st = slip stitch
sk = skip
st(s) = stitch(es)
rep = repeat
* – * = repeat instructions between asterisks as many times as directed

SPECIAL STITCHES

3-Double Crochet Puff Stitch:

Step #1. Start with a dc st, but do not pull through the last 2 loops (you should have 2 loops remain on the hook).
Step #2. In the same st, rep step #1 with working a dc but pulling through only the first 2 loops (you should have 3 loops remain on the hook).
Step #3. In the same st, rep step #1 again (you should have 4 loops remain on the hook).
Step #4. Lastly, yarn over and pull through all 4 loops on the hook.

One puff stitch completed! In summary, you’re starting a cluster of 3 dc stitches in the same stitch, but not finishing any of them until the end.

Picot: Ch 3, insert hook in first ch (3rd ch from hook), yarn over and pull through stitch & loop.
