Chrysanthemum Coaster – Pattern Review + Free Crochet Pattern Download Link

My little son graduated kindergarten 2 days ago! I can't believe how quickly the years have passed!

These flower crochet coasters were part of the appreciation gift I made for his kindergarten teachers. I really love how they turned out! I love the cheerful colors! I hope you will love them as much as I do!

I really hope that the kindergarten teachers liked their gift, because I have spent 2 hours for each coaster! :)
Yes, I thought it will work up much quicker, but I needed one hour for making one flower, plus one hour to work the edging around the petals and weaving in the ends!

Chrysanthemum Coaster – Free Crochet Pattern Review

The pattern I have used to make these coasters a Free Crochet Pattern by Bernat Design Studio on Yarnspirations site. Actually, the pattern is for a dishcloth, but using a smaller hook size as in the pattern indicated I have obtained nice, stiff coasters.
You can find the link to the free pattern download at the end of this post!

SIZE: The size of your dishcloth or coaster if you like, it might vary, depending of the yarn and hook size you will use. Unblocked, my flower coasters are having a diameter of approx. 6 inches (15 cm).

The dishcloth pattern calls for a 5 mm crochet hook,
and Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Yarn in 2 colors.

For my crochet flower coasters I have used a smaller hook size as in the pattern indicated, a 3.5 mm hook and cotton yarn in 4 colors! I think it looks much prettier in my version with more colors.
You could use any other cotton yarn as well and adjust the hook size.

I had much fun crocheting these coasters, well until weaving in the ends! :)
The pattern it's nice and simple, the only more challenging part is the final round, the edging around the petals. I didn't liked very much the look of the single crochet edging around the petals, so I replaced the sc with slip stitches, as seen in the picture below..

Before changing colors, I have finished the rounds with the invisible finish off  method.
I have joined new color  with a standing half double crochet  into ch space of a shell from previous round.

  1. hi, i really want to make this chrysanthemum coasters because i think they are really pretty, but its no longer available in the link attached. Is there any other way that i could get a hold of this pattern?

  2. Hi Lee, Thank you for letting me know! I have updated the link in my post. Please check out again.

  3. Why does it say free pattern and all there is, is pictures.

    1. Hi Charlene! Please look carefully and find the link to the free pattern download below the last picture! It's there.

  4. I can't seem to find this pattern to print it!

    1. Hi, The link at the end of the post is working just fine. Or search for "Bernat Chrysanthemum Dishcloth" on Yarnspirations site.

  5. I cannot get the link to work, either. And yes, I am clicking on the actual link. I even did a search for 'Chrysanthemum Coaster' at Yarnspirations with no luck.

    1. The link works just fine for me. And the actual pattern is for a dishcloth, not for a coaster, that's why you are not finding when searching for coaster on Yarnspiration.

  6. Ooooooh, well that makes a difference. Thanks.
