The four striped circle coasters that I made and posted about yesterday looked plain to me, and they were on the small side, so I added an extra round in blue. These are for sale in my online shop.
4 circle coasters get the floral treatment with scallops added in blue cotton
I simply added 12 petals, sometimes called scallops. The pattern for the 5th round for these flower coasters is ch 3 2 dc into same, sk 1, sl st into next, sk 1, (5 dc into next, sk 1, sl st into next, sk 1) repeated, end with 2 dc into starting ch, sl st into 3rd ch for 12 petals or scallops.
now they're the perfect size to become coasters at afternoon tea
