Flower Power Coaster – Free crochet pattern

This 7 Round Flower Power crochet coaster pattern is quick and fun to make. Crochet coasters make great gifts and are the perfect project for using up leftover bits of yarn. I’m calling this coaster pattern Flower Power as it reminds of the floral prints that were popular in the 70s.

These coasters have been made from Patons Cotton Blend 8ply yarn, with a 4mm hook.

    I love all your beautiful crochet items. For years all I did was knit__Socks. Since August I went back to crocheting & having a blast. I’ve always been drawn towards bright colors. Everything in my life is bright colors. I’m a very blessed woman to see the world as beautiful & bright filled with hope.?????

    Hi I absolutely LOVE these coasters! I have a question if you don’t mind though as I’m very new to crochet! How do YOU do your magic ring/loop? I’ve tried searching but so many different ways to do it out there (YouTube videos) and I can’t find the right one to work for this pattern! Thank you in advance ?

    Hi Mandy!!!
    In an effort to help Hannah on making a Magic Circle, Bella Coco has “the BEST” tutorial on how to do a Magic Circle!!!! I’ve looked at many tutorials that were simply pictures. I just couldn’t “wrap my head” around the concept. Bella Coco’s talks throughout her Magic Circle Tutorial and I had it mastered in no time!!! I hope this helps Hannah!!!
    Lots of Love,

    Such a pretty pattern! I’m pretty new to crocheting and I was wondering for round 7, is it necessary to slip stitch into the chain 5 space for every petal or just for the first one? Does it make a difference? Thanks!

      Hi there! No it’s not essential for every petal – if you try both you’ll see it doesn’t really make much difference. In fact, it will probably work out less bulky if you don’t do it for each petal. I wrote this pattern when i was a beginner, so it probably needs an update. 🙂

    Hi there, Just a querie…. Is there a typo in row 7 of the picture tutorial? Is there a treble missing after the dtr. Just asking as in the written instructions it has the treble included.
