Sunflower Coaster Crochet Pattern


Crochet sunflower coasters and a cup of tea against a white background.

Bring the sunshine inside with this sunflower coaster crochet pattern!

I love sunflowers, we even grew some once when my son was little. These coasters are such a fun way to add a pop of colour to your home plus they’re quick and easy to make. Perfect for giving as gifts or keep them for yourself (I won’t tell).

PATTERN

SUNFLOWER (starting in dark brown)

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, sl st to first hdc (56) – change to yellow in last hdc

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.
