Things to Know About This Pattern:

  • Advanced Beginner Level – nothing complicated, but you’ll need to follow along to see exactly what I’m doing. As long as you can work the basic crochet stitches, you’ll be golden!
  • The video version is below, and the written pattern as well.
  • Great for using up tidbits and scraps of fingering weight or sock yarn! You’ll also need a size US E hook.
  • Quick and fun! You’ll be whipping these out in no time and have a whole set to give as a gift or decorate your own home with love.
  • Make them solid like I did, or change colors each row for fun and funky combinations. Or use hand-painted sock yarns for lots of wild options!
  • Dainty and thin and perfect for using while sipping your afternoon tea or your morning coffee. Yes, please!
  • Not much yardage needed! So they’re cheap to make. 😉

Aren’t these macarons delicious looking? I made them following Beth’s Foolproof French Macaron recipe on YouTube. You should give them a try! Loads of fun to make and absolutely delish.

I used random yarns I had laying around, all of which are fingering weight. I don’t have these exact colors available for you but you can choose any you like!

So let’s get started, shall we?

Have a look at the video here:

Here’s the pattern:

I used various tidbits of yarn, but feel free to use whatever you like!

FINISHING:

Cut your tail and weave in your ends.

Leave as-is or block by soaking your coaster in water for 10 minutes, pressing out the excess moisture with a towel and pinning into place on cardboard. Allow to dry!

If you prefer your coaster stiff, you can spray with laundry starch.

I hope you enjoyed the pattern and that you lovvvvvve using your new fancy flower coasters!

    I thought I’d already commented this, but since it hasn’t show up here I can’t be sure.

    I’d like to make an official request that this pattern be listed on Ravelry so I may link a project page to the appropriate pattern page. Thank you!
