These cute flower coasters take less than an hour to knit. Knit them in cotton or make them in wool and felt them. It’s a perfect project for scrap yarn. The peachy and greens ones are made from Lily Sugar 'n Cream worsted weight cotton. The pink variegated one was knit in Galway Paint, a feltable wool. Your coasters will be smaller if you knit them in wool and felt them.
Each 5" coaster uses about 21 yards of worsted weight yarn on size 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles. You'll need a pair of straight needles for the petals and a set of double points to use as you decrease to the center of the flower. The petals are cast on and knit in a row, then you join in the round to knit the center.
