Flowers in Fall

I’ve been steadily honing my crochet skills over the past few weeks. I started with some plain, square dishcloths in single crochet, then amped things up when I started and finished a Granny Stripe blanket in two weekends and finally I’ve tackled my first project “in the round”! I was inspired to pick up one of my smaller hooks when I spotted Yvestown’s free crochet Flower Coaster Pattern on Pinterest yesterday.

I had one ball each of Sagebrush, White and Celadon Palette under my desk, just asking to be turned into some sweet flowers. They crochet up very quickly (about 20 minutes each despite a bit of “beginners fumbling” at the get-go) and I love love love how these colors look together. I’ve been planning on sewing up some basic round lavender and cedar sachets to pop in my dresser drawers and I think these would look lovely tacked on the front of each. Each one is about palm-sized, the perfect size for a coaster which is what the pattern was original written as, or sachet decoration which is what I’ll be doing with them this weekend.

I bet they’d even make some pretty ornaments… I think that white one looks especially snow-flakey.
