How to Crochet a Sunflower Coaster

Are Crochet Coasters Effective?

Yes! Crochet coasters are just as effective as cork, ceramic or stone coasters and are much more fun as they can be easily personalised to suit your space.

What is the Best Yarn to Use for Crochet Coasters?

Cotton yarn is a popular choice for crochet coasters as it’s durable, absorbent, holds up well to heat and is easy to wash.

Pattern Instructions

Sunflower (starting in dark brown)

Make a magic ring

R1: Ch1, 8 hdc in magic ring, sl st to first hdc (8)

R2: Ch 1, [hdc-inc] x8, sl st to first hdc (16)

R3: Ch 1, [hdc, hdc-inc] x8, sl st to first hdc (24)

R4: Ch 1, hdc, hdc-inc, [2 hdc, hdc-inc] x7, hdc, sl st to first hdc (32)

R5: Ch 1, [3 hdc, hdc-inc] x8, sl st to first hdc (40)

R6: 2 hdc, hdc-inc, [4 hdc, hdc-inc] x7, 2 hdc, sl st to first hdc (48)

R7: [5 hdc, hdc-inc] x8, change to yellow in last hdc, sl st to first hdc (56)

At this point my coaster measured 3.25″ across. Adjust hook size as necessary.

R8: Ch 1, [sc, pc] x28, sl st to first sc (28 sc, 28 pc)

R9: [Sk pc, [hdc, 2 dc, picot, 2 dc, hdc] in sc st, sk pc, sl st in next st] x14 – the last sl st is made into the closing sl st from R8 (14 petals)

Fasten off and weave in ends.

You may block your coaster if you wish (I didn’t feel it was necessary) otherwise gently tug and shape each petal into place.

  1. I am making this sunflower coaster but I don’t understand the instructions for [2 hdc, hdc-inc] x7 Does that mean 4 hdc per stitch? What is the difference between 2 hdc and hdc-inc?

    1. Hi, the [2 hdc, hdc-inc] is 1 hdc in the next 2 sts, 2 hdc in the same st, repeat the instructions in brackets 7 times. Hope that helps.

  2. Thanks Fay for providing these lovely coaster patterns. As a newbie at crochet they are brilliant to practice stitches. Loved doing the sunflowers. My first project was the little cat that you designed. It was really encouraging to be able to complete my first project after struggling to get the hang of crochet after many years of knitting!
