    Chain 1, work 10 single crochet stitches in the circle. Join to the first single crochet with a slip stitch to close the round. Quick tip: I like to crochet over the beginning tail to reduce weaving in later. Lazy step!

    Chain 1, work 2 single crochet stitches in first single crochet you joined to in the last round and in each single crochet around. Join to the first single crochet with a slip stitch to close the round. You will have 20 single crochet stitches. The 2 single crochets worked in one stitch is called an increase and you’ll be making these increases throughout the next few rounds.

    Grab your second color yarn (you won’t need very much, so this is a great way to use up scrap yarn). This is a little intuitive, meaning you don’t have to do any exact counting. Holding your yarn at the back of the coaster, insert your hook from front to back through any stitch on the first round. Grab the yarn with the hook and pull through. Insert the hook into the next stitch in the second round, grab the yarn with the hook and pull through. Chain stitch!

    Using the technique I just showed you, slip stitch in and out of stitches in a flower pattern, working up and round in petals. This is pretty intuitive and doesn’t need to look precise – as long as it looks like a flower and has at least 5 petals, we’re good. :) Slip stitch a circle around the last round if you’d like, just for extra definition.

    Fasten off your second color yarn and weave everything in using the yarn needle. If you want, you can iron your coasters using the low steam setting to flatten them a bit.
