Posy Coaster Pattern

Updated: Jun 14

Some of my most favorite designs start with a hook, ball of scrap yarn, notebook, & pencil. I just sit and let my hook do the walking while I scribble down what it did in my weird shorthand. When it's finished I attempt to decipher my chicken scratch and type up the pattern. I follow the typed pattern and make another as I edit and improve the design.

The only problem with this pattern was I had no idea what it was by the end. I had originally created the design with Mandala Ombre yarn and considered trying to come up with a way to connect them securely to create a scarf. I haven't completely trashed that idea yet, but after struggling with it for a couple days decided to file it in the “maybe later” folder of my brain.

I just happened to have some Lily Sugar’n Cream cotton sitting next to me, and I'm pretty sure it whispered “try me”, so I gave it a shot. The finished product was just the right size for the glass sitting next to me to rest on. BAM! Coaster it is then.

I'm still torn on the name since half the time I think it looks more like a sunshine than a flower. However, when another amazing designer, Jo's Crafty Hook, informed me she was looking for flower patterns for an upcoming blog hop, it screamed flower.

Here's what you'll need to get started......
