The Sunflower Coaster is a free crochet pattern at Nana’s Crafty Home!
The Sunflower Coaster is the second pattern in my Sunflower Kitchen crochet pattern set. I just released the Sunflower Towel Topper free crochet pattern and have a Sunflower Potholder pattern coming soon!
I made these coasters with Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton!* which is a #4 medium worsted weight cotton yarn but you could certainly use acrylic as well.
*This post contains affiliate links. You can click on any yarn or material highlighted to purchase. I will receive a small commission if you purchase but it won’t cost you any extra!
The only stitches you need in your crochet arsenal for this pattern are sc, hdc, double and treble. The main body of the panels are made with single crochet stitches and the petals of the sunflower use a combination of hdc, dc & treble to create each petal.
These coasters are a great way to use up scrap yarn you have on hand and even though they look fantastic, bright and cheerful in sunflower themed colors I think they would also look great in other colors as well!
I will also be releasing a Sunflower potholder in the next few days to the blog as a free pattern! And If you purchase the ad-free PDF you will get all 3 patterns for one price!
I have two video tutorials which will help you with all three of these patterns – the How to Crochet a Perfect Circle Tutorial as well as a tutorial which will show you how to crochet the petals of the sunflower. You can find the sunflower petal tutorial below. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel to get notified whenever I post a new video.
This pattern is also available as an ad-free, printable PDF! This PDF bundle includes individual PDFs for the towel topper, coaster & potholder! You can purchase the individual pattern, or if you love PDFs, you might want to check out my Lifetime Membership. It’s an awesome deal! Never pay for one of my PDFs again!!
