Dress up your holiday table with these cute snowflake coasters! They work up very quickly so you can have them scattered about your home in no time. I worked on this pattern quite a while trying to get it just right. I wanted a classic snowflake look that could be used as a coaster, but I also wanted it to be simple, because, well, Simple Things Crochet! That’s kinda my thing. 😉
It may look complicated, but as long as you can follow a pattern, it’s pretty easy. I’ve added lots of photos – especially of the last round – to try and make it clear where you are supposed to place your stitches. Give it a try. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Skill Level: Easy +
Hook size: H/8 – 5.00mm

- Beginning chains count as stitches.
- I prefer a magic circle to start so there’s no hole in the middle. However, if you’d like, you can chain 2 and work 5 sc into the second chain from hook for Round 1.
- Do build-up chains loosely to make it easier to get your hook through for the slip stitch at the end of each round.
- I recommend putting a stitch marker in the top of your build-up chain, it makes it much easier to find where to place your slip stitches.
- There is no slip stitch to join at the end of Round 3.
- Your coaster will look best if you block it.
Make a magic circle. (or use optional instructions in Notes.)
Round 1: Sc five times into the magic circle. Join with a ss. (The ss counts as a st here so total stitches are 6) The photo below shows the stitch marker in the chain 1 of Round 2.
Round 2: Ch 1, sc in next st, 2 sc in each remaining st, ss to join. (12 sts) The photo below shows Round 2 complete.
Round 3: Ch 1, *sc in next st (see photo below), 2 sc in next st*, repeat from * to * four times, 1 sc in each of last two sts (18 sts). No ss to join at the end of this round.
Round 4: *Ch 3, sc in next three sts*, repeat from * to * 5 times. You should have 6 loops at the end of this round. The photo below shows where to put your first sc in this round – it does not show the ch 3.
Photo below shows Round 4 complete.
Round 5: *(2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) in next ch 3 sp, sk next st, sc in next st, [Note: you are putting your sc in the center of the 3 sc group from Round 4], sk next st*, repeat from * to * 4 times, (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) in next ch 3 sp, sk next st, sc in next st, ss in last st to join. Photo below shows Round 5 complete.
Round 6: *Sc in next 2 sts, (sc, ch 3, sc, ch 5, sc, ch 3, sc) in next ch 3 sp, sc in next 3 sts, ch 4, ss in same st*, repeat 5 times, sc in next st, tie off and weave in ends. Photos below show the placement of Round 6 stitches.
