Stitches of Light and More

Crochet, plastic canvas, wreaths and more

Another new plastic canvas pattern!

I’m so excited to be offering ten of my patterns now!  My newest one is perfect for the spring and summer time!  

Tulip coasters!  They make me happy just looking at them 🙂

This tulip pattern, along with my others are available in my etsy shop. You can also browse them on my website here and click to buy on etsy.

More to come soon- I’ve drawn several up, including a dolphin and a sand castle,  but haven’t stitched them yet 🙂

Flower coaster pattern

I did have a few people interested in the pattern for the flower coasters. This is my first pattern that I’ve written for anyone other than myself, so please ask if there’s anything I don’t explain well!

***** Note: the 1st 7 rounds are worked in a spiral, do not join to the 1st stitch of round, but do mark the beginning of each round.

1. Begin with a magic circle.
2. Round 1: 6 single crochet into circle (6 stitches)
3. Round 2: 2 single crochet into each stitch around (12 stitches)
4. Round 3: *1 single crochet in 1st stitch, 2 single crochet in 2nd stitch*. Repeat between ** around (18 stitches)
5. Round 4: *1 single crochet in 1st 2 stitches, 2 single crochets in 3rd stitch*. Repeat between ** around (24 stitches)
6. Round 5: *1 single crochet in 1st 3 stitches, 2 single crochet in 4th stitch*. Repeat between ** around (30 stitches)
7. Round 6: *1 single crochet in 1st 4 stitches, 2 single crochet in 5th stitch*. Repeat between ** around (36 stitches)
8. Round 7: *1 single crochet in 1st 5 stitches, 2 single crochet in 6th stitch*. Repeat between ** around (42 stitches). For this round, join to the first stitch of this round with a slip stitch.
9. Round 8: *chain 6, skip next 3 stitches, slip stitch into 4th stitch. Slip stitch in stitches 5, 6, 7.*. (1st petal). Repeat between **. You will have 7 petals when finished. Slip stitch to join in 1st chain of round
10. Round 9: single crochet around each petal and each slip stitch of previous round. Join with slip stitch to 1st single crochet of round.
11. Weave in ends.

That’s it! Here is a picture of the 2 I’ve completed so far. Sorry, I haven’t weaves in my ends yet. Let me know how this works for you!
