It is spring and I don’t know about you but when warmer weather is on the horizon I start thinking of all the fun things I can crochet that aren’t winter hats and scarves!
These quick and easy crochet coasters are great for using up those scraps of cotton yarn you have taking up valuable space in your stash. I chose to do them all in solid colors but they would look great in multiple colors. It would really make that center flower pop!
I based these coasters on my May Flowers Granny Square.

Are you doing any craft fairs this spring and summer season? These crochet coasters would be a great addition to your tables. Crochet up a set in coordinating colors and package them together. with a piece of twine.
I ended up gifting my set to to my mom for an early Mother’s Day gift. They will be a perfect addition to her sun room.
Before we get started don’t forget to pin this to your favorite crochet board on Pinterest!!

Lana Ray says
This pattern is great, however I’m finding the coasters are curling up. I have had to ammend the pattern slightly to allow for an increase in round 3, therefore removing the curl.
I am also slightly confused by the photo under round 2 instructions, which clearly shows 10 clusters not 12.
If you count the stitches in the magic circle there is 10 hence row 2 having 10 and not 12 clusters.
Holly Middleton says
I love this pattern but I’m wondering if there should be increases somewhere in either round 4 or 5? Because there are no increases, by the time I’m finished round 5, the edges of my coasters are starting to curl up into a tube. I have to stretch the finished coasters out quite a bit in order from them to lay flat.
Holly Middleton says
When I get to round 5, since there are no increases, my coasters start to turn into tubes. I have to stretch out the coasters…. like a LOT afterwards in order to get them to lay flat and now curl up at the edges…. should I be increasing somewhere, like in round 4 or 5?
Jan Borkowski says
I would like to make something like these or the citrus slices pattern that is used as a separator. Only I want to use them as cozies in the microwave under bowls. Therefore I need to make them cup up around the bowls. Do you have a way to get them to cup up rather than lay flat? Thank you in advance!

I am just beginning and I don’t understand how to do the cluster. Is there a video?

How can I print this?
I’m making these coasters as a gift for a friend. This is such a beautiful pattern, by the way.
I have a couple of questions:
In Rnd 1, you say that the ch 2 does not count as dc. But then I end up with 13 stitches in the Mc (the beg 2 ch + 12 dc).
Also, what is the purpose of ch 2 if it is not counted as a dc?
[Rnd 1: Mc. ch 2 (does not count as dc), 12 dc in ring. Join to top of 1st dc with sl st. (12)]
I’m still an amateur at crocheting, hence these questions.
I don’t get it either. Makes more sense to:
Rnd 1: Mc. ch 3 (counts as dc), 11 dc in ring. Join to 3rd chain of original ch3 with sl st. (12)
This way you have 12 bars and 12 sts vs the orignal way makes 13 bars and 12 sts.
Randi Neff says
When joining with a slip stitch, skip the double crochet that does not count n go into the next double crochet that does count. That will make the 12.
The purpose of the ch 2 is to start the row. If u don’t slip stitch n ch 2, u will be working in the round n u will not get the desired outcome of the pattern.
MC 12Dc. Always start with even rows if u can. Because a lot of patterns r based on even counts. For the most part if making blankets, it doesnt usually matter.
If u have anymore questions contact me n i will help u.
