Free Pattern - Crocheted Poppy Flower Coasters



This pattern was a spawn of my original flower coaster pattern. I like this one a bunch, but don't think I have the patience to make an entire set of them.

Poppy Coaster:

Using black yarn and a 3.75mm hook:
R1: MR, sc 7 in ring
R2: 2 sc each st
R3: sl st the entire row
Switch to red
R4: working into top loops of previous round (not the sl sts) sc each st
R5: sc, 2 sc
R6: (sc next 2 sts, 2 sc next st)
R7: (sc next 3 sts, 2 sc next st)
R8: Even
R9: Even
R10: (Sl st, 4 dc next st, sc next st, 4 dc next st, skip next st, sl st next 2 sts) Repeat, BO weave end in

Using Perle Cotton embroider details, finishing each line off with a French knot. Using the red yarn, embroider the lines that separate each petal. Sew poppy to black felt, cut felt around flower.



Yarn I used:
Red: Red Heart Soft Yarn – Cherry Red
Black: Caron Simply Soft - Black

I don't mind if you want to sell coasters made from this pattern to your family, friends, at your local craft scene or even online. But please give me credit! Thank you!!
