Over at the gorgeous woolhogs, every month they hold a made it challenge. For April, they added a theme ‘seasons’. I really fancied entering and this cute idea popped into my head.
I loved making them, and am hoping to sell some at some local craft fairs if I can take the plunge and be brave!
They are very simple and sweet to make, It’s really just the inside of a granny square, from another fave book of mine, Granny Squares, by Barbara Wilder, Melanie Sturm & Stephanie Gohr.
I used cotton yarn and a 3mm hook, but you can use whatever you like such is the beauty of crochet!
ch5 join with ss into first chain to form a ring. round1: 1ch, work 8 dc in ring. round2: new colour, slip stitch in any dc, 3ch, 1 tr, 1ch, 2tr in each dc, ss in top of first 3 ch. round3: new colour, slip stitch into any ch space between tr clusters, 3ch, 2tr into same space, 1ch, 3tr into each space, ss into first 3 ch. round4: new colour, ss into same space, 1 ch dc into next 2tr, 4tr into ch space dc into 2nd and 3rd tr, repeat till end, ss into first ch.

Very cute!!! I love the yellow centers 🙂 and the happy spring colors….
thanks, glad you like them. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
these crochet coasters are very pretty Teresa! I believe you should really go and try to sell them at your local craft fairs; they are so pretty and feminine! 🙂 I hope you will be brave; I’m sure you will! 🙂
thanks Ingrid, i reckon i might! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I know i’m getting quite excited about it now! xxxxxx
Good! 🙂 I’m really happy for you! so many good things going on right now for you! 🙂
Love the round take on a granny square! And the colours you used are luscious … =D
thank you sooooooooooooooo much. xxxxxx
Very pretty – and I bet you could secure them to cork coasters (with glue?) so they’d be better at providing heat and moisture protection.
Laura thats a great idea, it would make them stronger too. xxxxxxxxxxxxx
They are so pretty. absolutely gorgeous. x
thank you, I can feel another batch coming on! x
These are so stinkin’ cute Teresa! I’m sure they will be big sellers at a craft fair!!
aww thanks melissa, I hope they will! xxxxxxxxxx
These are too cute Teresa! Be brave and take that plunge! Go to the craft fair and show everyone your beautiful work. Last Spring, a friend and I hesitated about submitting a request for a very popular artisinal fair where we would bake up a storm of goodies. In the end, we took the plunge, were accepted and did quite well. It’s hard to step out of our comfort zone, but I say feel the fear and do it anyway!
I think you are so right, I should give it a go, if no one comes to my stall it wont matter, I will have tried. xxxxxxxxxxx
You go girlfriend!
These are beautiful Teresa. I wish I could do them they are so like flowers. Go and take the plunge your work is beautiful.
so nice of you to say so, I think I am gonna dive in! xxxxxxxx
They are so beautiful, nice in pink 🙂
you can never have to much pink hey!! xxxxxxxxx
Yes you are right 🙂
Very lovely! I’m brushing up on my crochet, so maybe I’ll give these a go… after I finish my dolly craze. 😉
thank you, and if I made one of those for my daughter I reckon she would keep me going and then some! xxxxx
Another thought: These flowers would look super cute on a hat or headband as well! 🙂
great idea girl! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
