Do you crochet? Or do you want to learn how to crochet? Well, stay tuned because in a few short weeks, I’ll be having my very first Crochet-Along right here on this little ol’ blog! We’ll be choosing a project to work on together and going through the pattern with lots of pictures and lessons on the basics. I’ve also teamed up with a few of my favorite crocheting friends to help answer any questions you may have, and offer some awesome prizes to those who participate. Excited yet? The crochet along will start at the beginning of February, so keep in touch and you won’t miss the fun!
Now onto the pattern! These little flower coasters are perfect under a pint glass (with beer? rootbeer?) or under a mug, perhaps matched up with a mug cozy for a quick gift. Or switch it up, and use it as a facial scrubber. By the way, this will be one of the patterns up for the Crochet-Along pattern vote, so take a look and enjoy! I’m pretty new to writing patterns, so let me know if there’s anything that is difficult to understand.
If you’d like to sell items from this pattern or share it with your friends, I just ask that you give credit back to One Dog Woof. Please do not repost or re-distribute the pattern in its entirety. Thanks!

These are so cute! Will definitely have to try. And looking forward to seeing more about the crochet-along!
what a lovely pattern, thanks so much for sharing!
I learned how to crochet right before Christmas, so I’m still a newbie and looking forward to the Crochet-Along!! I think this pattern would be awesome as face scrubbies, like you mentioned, and I plan on doing just that as soon as I find cotton yarn.
Yay! I have been wishing for this! I know I don’t have any hooks! Looking forward to it! Thank you!
Great idea with the CAL..let me know if you need any help? I’d be glad to jump in with you…

Love these! I made coasters with some leftover yarn but they aren’t as cute as these!! Found you over @ Southern Lovely.
Good Evening ChiWei, It is a many years since I crocheted, but you have peeked my interest with these lovely coasters. They are perfect for lazy summer days, when relaxing in the garden with a cold drink. I have enjoyed reading your blog and have become your newest follower. Sending you best wishes from England, Daphne

Hi again, sorry I just read your disclaimer I won’t pin this unless that is ok with you. Just let me know.(it would have a link back to your post in pin) Thanks
cute flower coaster pattern, thanks for sharing and your photo is beautiful!
Hi, I pinned this after finding it on pinterest already. I pinned from your blog though. I like the coasters a lot!
How can I make these flower coaster leaving a hole in middle of each to put on a wooden dowel spindle?
THANKS ahead to anyone that can help. I’m rather new to crocheting.
Eva, The pattern says to start with a magic circle, which closes up the center. If you want to leave the center open, you can start your round using the Chain 2 method I show in this post: http://www.1dogwoof.com/2013/08/crochet-in-the-round-magic-circle-and-chain-2.html This method leaves a hole, but it’s small, you’ll need a small dowel or crochet a little more loosely at the beginning to ensure the hole is big enough for your dowel. Hope that helps!
These will be good for tea parties, gifts and in the Spring and Summer..these are easy to make..
what is “a magic ring” that you mentioned in the flower coasters pattern?
Penny, the magic ring method is a way to start crocheting in the round. You can see more at this post: http://www.1dogwoof.com/2013/08/crochet-in-the-round-magic-circle-and-chain-2.html. It’s just one method, so there’s other ways to start with a circle. The magic ring method allows you to pull the tail to close up the hole in the center that you would otherwise get.
I have really wanted to learn how to make these flowers. Is it harder to make them smaller? Can’t wait for your crochet lessons. Thanks.
I’d like to make these but how do I print off the pattern.
You can print from your browser window. I do not have a print-friendly copy of the pattern, sorry!
Cheryl, to make them smaller, you’d have to use a smaller hook and thinner yarn, I think. And as the project gets smaller, it just gets harder to see the stitches!
I just started crocheting again after about 25 years,kinda had to start over,liked your pattern ,I think they are really cute, and could follow it nicely ,thanks
Luv this pattern,easy to follow for newbies like me
Made a ripple blanket. Saw your flower coasters and thought it would be great to make a set of coasters to match the blanket.. I followed the directions but somehow keep ending up with 8 petals instead of 9. What am I doing wrong? Would appreciate your input. Thanks
I can’t say without seeing it, but you can count your stitches after every round and see if that helps. I do that a lot when I think I’m doing something wrong but can’t figure it out. Plus, then I don’t have to rip out the whole project if I check every little step along the way.
You were right. My counting was off. Once I figured it out it fell in place. My niece and her fiancee loved the set of coasters! Thanks
These are adorable! I have a general question, though… Every time I try to make a coaster or doily, the coaster curls and the doily ends up with waves. Can you please tell me what I’m doing wrong?
You might be adding in too many stitches. Just make sure to count your way through. If it still buckles, you may need to wet it down and block dry it to flatten. Or put it under a big book 🙂
Thank you for the pattern. Personnally I will turn it into a scrubber made with tulle.
I’ve made two of these and they look very nice but I am wondering why I end up with ten petals instead of nine. I am counting my stitches after each round.
I just love these little flowers. Can they be made larger – to the size of an lap warmer? If so, how?
Love this pattern and have mentioned it along with my free pillow sewing pattern here: https://www.diy-crush.com/blog/blossom-doily-pillow-sewing-pattern-review/ Come check it out! 😉
Just what I was looking for! Made these with a smaller gauge hook and turned them into award ribbons (one blue and one red) for a project I am working on. Made simple “ribbons” and attached them to the back sides of each. Look great! Am bookmarking your site because it is so interesting and fun. Thank you so much for sharing this tutorial :):):)
Thanks! And turning them into award ribbons is a great idea!
This IS really cute and really fun to make. I’m going to make a bunch. Thanks for the pattern.
Hi. I hope someone can help me. I need a pattern that wll make a bigger version of this. I ended up withh a super small coaster using regular yarn. thank you! I really hope someone can help me. my email address is [email protected]
I just made this pattern with a thinner yarn and I am going to use it as a pendant for a necklace. I am new to crochet and this pattern was not only fun to make but easy to follow. Clear instructions !
Thank you !
Thank you so much, Chi Wei, for the pattern of the flower coaster. They are very pretty.❤
Beautifully clear and well written. You did a great job of writing this pattern. I usually have to edit patterns before I print them out (Such as reducing “First, you are going to want to take your size H crochet hook and work 9 chain stitches” to “Ch 9.”). I didn’t need to edit yours. I like your style, and I am definitely going to make a bunch of these coasters for my daughter’s house in the next couple of weeks. Thank you for posting this pattern.
I made your flower coaster, and added an extra increase row. With the extra row of increase, I have 10 petals. This is a quick, easy project! I am giving these to my girlfriends and sister for valentine’s day!
Thank you for the pattern!
How many does one ball of yarn make?
That will depend on the type of yarn you use, as well as the hook size and your tension.
