How to simply crochet some flower coasters?
Below you will find the information to get started.
- A few meters of Ribbonxl Yarn;
- 6 mm crochet hook;
- Darning needle;
Step 1: Make a (magic) ring
See below video how it is done! The ring is magical because you can close it very tightly by pulling on the short end of the yarn.
Tip: If the magic loop technique is still a bit intimidating for you, do not despair! You can also chain 4 and close with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Step 2: Crochet the petals
Chain 10 and attach with a slip stitch in the magic ring. Repeat this 5 times for a 6-petal flower. Cast on with a slip stitch and weave loose yarn ends through the back.
Tip: The heart of the flower is a perfect spot for a matching button. You will be amazed to see how much different a great button can make in upgrading this project.
