CROCHET PATTERN - Simple Flower Coasters

Need a quick gift?

You can whip up a pair of these coasters in about 30 minutes, and with less than 1 oz of yarn.  These coasters are very pretty!  They work well as face scrubbers or toddler washcloths!

YOU NEED:  about 5 yards of cotton yarn (acrylic would be OK, but cotton is best), an H hook, scissors, yarn needle

STITCHES:  SC - single crochet, DC - double crochet, SL ST - slip stitch.

Start with Magic Ring or ch-4/join.

Round 1:  CH 2, 12 DC in loop, join with SL ST to 1st DC.  (12 DC)

Round 2:  CH 2, 2 DC in each DC around, join.  (24 DC)

Round 3:  CH 2, *1 DC in next, 2 DC in next* around, join.  (36 DC)

*If you want your petals to be a different color, change yarns now.

Round 4:  CH 1, SC in same ST as join, skip next ST, 5 DC in next ST, skip 1 ST, SC in next ST, (skip 1 ST, 5 DC in next, skip 1 ST, SC in next) around, join with SL ST to 1st SC.  (9 petals)

Fasten off & weave in ends.  That's it.  4 rounds of simple flower fun!

If your "petals" curl up or the coaster won't lie flat, reduce number of stitches per petal to 4.
