Flowers in bloom, pollen in my eyes, and mosquitoes in the air — Spring is here (although since the groundhog saw his shadow, it’s still a little chilly here in the Southeast), and I’m finally back in action (Or should I say, springing back into action! kishishishishi!)! It’s kind of funny reading my previous motivated post about the inspiration to work, only to see myself go on an indefinite hiatus until now. Well, now I’m actually back and ready to post! Heehee~
Wil, his mom and I will be selling crafts soon at a garden craft show, so I thought it would be nice to make something a little more dainty and floral themed for this event. From my beading tutorial in the past, it’s pretty safe to say that daisies are one of my favorite flowers. They just look so delicate and soft, and really, makes me feel relaxed just looking at them.
Which leads me to my daisy coaster pattern, because who doesn’t like coasters?
Materials you’ll be needing:
- 4.5mm crochet hook
- Yellow worsted weight yarn (of course, you don’t need to make a daisy, feel free to interchange the color of yarn for any type of flower you’d like!)
- White worsted weight yarn
- Sewing yarn needle
- Scissors for snipping
Sc 6 times in magic circle (6).
- Round 1: 2 sc in each st (12)
- Round 2: sc in 1 st, sc 2x in next st. Repeat around until end (18)
- Round 3: sc in next 2 st, sc 2x in next st. Repeat around until end (24)
- Rounds 4: sc in next 3 st, sc 2x in next st. Repeat around until end (30)
Break off and sew in left over yarn.
This part can be a little confusing if you’re not used to reading patterns yet, but I’ll break it down as best as I can. Round 1 will be the creation of all the petals and the round 2 will be the outlining of the petals.
Attach white yarn to anywhere on the yellow circle.
- Round 1: *ch 7, sk 1 from the end and sc in the 2nd ch from the end back towards the yellow center. Sl st to next yellow st, sl in next st, turn, sc 6x, ch 1, turn, sc 6, sl st to next yellow stitch, sl st in next 2 stitches* repeat 6 times all around the yellow center.
- Round 2: *Sc 6 up the petal, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, 6 sc down the petal back to the center, sl st in next three stitches* repeat 6 times around the flower.
Break off, and sew in ends.
The end product should look like this!
And now you should have you first dainty daisy coaster use!
Here’s mine in action:
I have the cutest mug right? haha, I got mine at Daiso for a $1.50! 😀
Happy Spring, and happy crocheting friends~
