    Lately, I've been drinking a lot of coffee and tea (I guess I'm preparing myself for the upcoming season!) but soon realized I only had a few boring coasters at home, so I decided to get crafty and make my own.

    When I was little, I spent most of my summers at my grandparent's house, which was in a small town surrounded by endless sunflower fields. I used this childhood memory as inspiration for this project. I hope you all enjoy my pattern! 🙂

    Coaster

    We will start by making the disc in brown yarn (or your preferred color).

    Rnd 1: ch 2, work 6 dc into first ch - 6 st.
    Rnd 2: 2 dc in each st around - 12 st.
    Rnd 3: [2 dc in next st, dc in next st] 6 times - 18 st.
    Rnd 4: [2 dc in next st, dc in next 2 st] 6 times - 24 st.
    Rnd 5: [2 dc in next st, dc in next 3 st] 6 times - 30 st.
    Rnd 6: [2 dc in next st, dc in next 4 st] 6 times - 36 st.
    Rnd 7: [2 dc in next st, dc in next 5 st] 6 times - 42 st.
    Rnd 8: [2 dc in next st, dc in next 6 st] 6 times - 48 st.
    Rnd 9: [2 dc in next st, dc in next 7 st] 6 times - 54 st.

    Change color. Now we’ll start making the petals. For the first round of petals, we’ll go around the circle and will leave a dc between each petal. We will make 27 petals in one round (dc + petal).

    Rnd 10: BLO [dc in next st, ch 10, dc in previous st in the chain, htr in next st, tr in next 3 st, htr in next st, dc in next st, sl st to attach the petal to the circle]. Repeat 27 times to complete the circle.

    Now we’ll make our second round of petals which will go in front of the previous round (FLO). We’ll invert the dc so our two rounds of petals don’t overlap (petal + dc).

    Rnd 11: FLO [insert hook into st and sl st, ch 10, dc in previous st in the chain, htr in next st, tr in next 3 st, htr in next st, dc in next st, sl st to attach the petal to the circle, dc in next st]. Repeat 27 times to complete the circle.

    Optional: Sew a piece of rubber placemat on the back to make your coaster more rigid and non-slip.

    There are different variations you can make from this pattern. By changing the colors, you could make colorful daisies.
