Starry flower coaster - free pattern

Pin It

I created this pretty coaster pattern last week and wanted to share it with you but couldn't find the time to photograph it. Today my son asked me to make coffee cake for him. Though I was tired and my whole body was aching from a terrible bike ride on potholed roads yesterday and was very badly in need of rest in the afternoon I agreed almost immediately for the reason that I would have a good prop to photograph my coaster.

Here is the pattern with step-by-step photographs for the very pretty starry flower coaster.

I used worsted weight yarn and size G/4.00 mm hook. The pattern is written is American terms, so for my readers who use British terms,

sc - single crochet (American) and double crochet (British)
dc - double crochet (American) and treble (British)
sl st - slip stitch (American) and single crochet (British)
ch - chains
dc3tog - double crochet 3 stitches worked together into the same stitch

Round 1: Using white ch 8, join with a sl st to form a ring. Ch 3, 19 dc into ring (20 dc). Join. (ch 3 will be considered the 1st dc). Break off yarn.

Round 2: Join yellow into any stitch. Ch 3, dc2tog in the same stitch (this will be considered as the first dc3tog), ch 3. [Skip next dc, dc3tog in next dc, ch 3] around. Join. Break off yarn.

Round 3: Join pink into any 3 chain space, ch 3 and 3 dc in same space, ch 1. Work [4 dc, ch 1] into every 3 chain space around. Join. Break off yarn.

Round 4: Join green into any 1 chain space. Work [(dc3tog, ch 3, dc3tog), ch 4] in every 1 ch space around. Join. Break off yarn.

Round 5: Join dark blue into a 3 chain space. Work [(3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) into 3 chain space, ch 1, sc into the next 4 chain space, ch 1] around. Join. Break off yarn.

Round 6: Join light blue into a dc. Work [sc in 3 dc, (2 sc, ch 1, 2 sc) in 3 chain space, sc in 3 dc, sc in next 1 chain space, sc in sc, sc in next 1 chain space] around. Join. Break off yarn and weave in the all the loose ends.

Don't forget to block it. Mine looked good only after blocking.

I hope you enjoy making a few coasters using the pattern.

Have a great day!

  9. Hi!
    What I love so much about your patterns is their brilliant simplicity. Thanks for sharing it. I can't wait to make one.

  10. Hi again, I am making the motif now. I think that when you say "DC2TOG" and "DC3TOG", you mean to make 2 or 3 double crochets in the same space? I am making it like this and it's working.

    1. Yes Khadija, that's right. I hope your coasters turned out well.

  11. It's very pretty thank you for the pattern :)

  12. A lovely coaster pattern. Thank you for sharing and for the great pictures.

  13. beautiful coaster.Thanks for sharing the pattern.

  14. Very sweet little pattern. Thanks for sharing xoxo

  15. That is a lovely coaster. Thanks always for sharing your talent with us. I'm sure your son was very happy with the cake you made. Have just returned from settling my son in at college in the States. Crocheted many dishcloths while on the road traveling, but have done little else. Hope to get back into the swing of things and this pattern will be first on my list of things to try. Best wishes, Tammy

  16. That's so pretty! I want your talent! Your blog is full of gorgeous works of art :)

  17. That is really cute! Thank you for the great and thorough instructions!

  18. So cute coaster...And awesome clicks...Loved it...

  19. I should have read the comments first. I just finished the coaster but I actually did a 3dctog rather than just 3 dcs in the space. Anywho, it turned out just fine-- but next time I will do as Khadija mentioned. :) Have a lovely day. Tammy

  20. Hi Pradeepa! Just stopping by to let you know that your crochet coaster has been featured on this week's Get Crafty Friday! I hope you will stop by and grab a feature button. Have a wonderful weekend!
