Pretty Flower Coaster…..or whatever

20140130-071048.jpg

 

I’m coaster crazy right now.  There are many big projects coming up and mass amounts of coasters is the easiest one to tackle when it’s too cold out to do much else.  I’ve found some great patterns, and this is the Frankenflower that came from those.  I love the way this one turned out, and the possibilities are endless!  I’m thinking about putting a bunch of these together to make a table runner.  Wouldn’t that be cute!?!

As always, do your own thing.  This is what I did.  Keep in mind that your yarn and hook size will determine the size of your flower.  Also, changing the stitches up will help you get the size you need.  Using HDC until round 4 (use DC in round 4) will make a flower that’s about 4.5 inches.  Using DC for the whole flower will make a flower that’s about 5 inches.  I haven’t gone bigger or smaller, but feel free to do so.

What you need –  5 mm crochet hook, Sugar n’ Cream cotton

Round One

Using a magic circle, chain 2 (counts as first HDC), make 15 HDC in circle.  16 HDC total.  Slip Stitch in beginning chain 2 to join

Round Two

Chain 4, HDC in same stitch.  *Skip next stitch. HDC in next stitch, chain 2, HDC in same stitch*  Repeat from * to * around.  Slip Stitch in 2nd chain in beginning chain 4 to join.

Round Three

Slip Stitch into chain 2 space, chain 2 (counts as first HDC).  Make 4 more HDC in chain 2 space.  Chain 1.  *Make 5 HDC in next chain 2 space.  Chain one*  Repeat from * to * around.  Slip Stitch into beginning chain 2 to join.

Round Four

*Skip 2 stitches.  In the 3rd stitches make 6 DC.  Skip 2 stitches.  Slip Stitch into chain 1 space*  Repeat from * to * around.

Cut yarn, fasten off, sew in ends.  Flower!
