Once upon a time, I used to crochet. After searching for the perfect housewarming gift for a friend, I came up with this simple pattern: Easy Dhalia Coasters! This easy crochet coasterpattern was one of my go-to patterns for easy, yet stylish and functional gifts. These are perfect as housewarming gifts! Another bonus is that these work very fast and with just 5 rows, you’ll have a lovely dahlia coaster! I hope you enjoy the pattern!
Easy Crochet Coaster Dahlia Pattern:
For this easy crochet coaster pattern…
Hook size: 4.5mm or 5.0mm (4.0 will do if you want a smaller and tighter coaster).
Gauge: Not required.
Notes: Unfinished DC: YO, insert hook, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops. Keep remaining loops on hook, and continue until the unfinished dc in petal. You may have more than 2 loops on your hook depending on how many unfinished DC you have already completed in your petal.
Basically, to make an unfinished DC, ignore the last (YO, pull through 2 loops) and leave the loops on the hook instead. To close it, YO, pull through all loops.
To begin: Make a magic circle, chain 1.
Row 1: 7 sc into magic circle, join with a slip stitch
Row 2: Ch3. (Make 2 unfinished DC, pulling through all loops at the end of the last unfinished DC) into the same stitch as slip stitch. Chain 3. *3 unfinished DC into the next stitch, pulling through all loops at the end of the 3 unfinished DC. Chain 3* Repeat * to * 6 more times. 8 petals total. End row with a slip stitch into the top of the first petal.
Row 3: Chain 3. (Make 2 unfinished DC, pulling through all loops at the end of the last unfinished DC) into the first chain 3 space. Chain 3. *3 unfinished DC into the same chain 3 space, pulling through all loops at the end of the 3 unfinished DC. Chain 3* Repeat * to * twice into each of the remaining chain 3 spaces. (16 petals total in this row, 2 in each chain 3 space). Slip stitch into the top of the first petal of this round.
Row 4: chain 2. 3 hdc in the first chain 3 space. 4 hdc into the remaining chain 3 spaces. Slip stitch at the top of the beginning chain 2.
Row 5: Slip stitch into each hdc, bind off. (This makes the coaster sturdy, nice and neat)
