Japanese Flower Coaster

Yes, I have made something at last!

Dinki Dots: Japanese Flower Crochet Coaster

Using those lovely bright Bamboo Cotton colours from my last post, I have made a Japanese Flower coaster.  I love it!

The pattern was found and sent to me in a document by my friend Anna over four years ago after I first saw this and fell in love and showed it to Anna!  It's taken me all this time to finally make one flower, so I think a few coasters are a bit more manageable than a whole throw or shawl!  If you'd like the pattern, you can search on Pinterest for 'Japanese Flower Crochet' and there seem to be patterns more easily available these days.

There will be more to come, but I thought I'd show you the first one, as it's been so long since I've finished something!

Hope to be back soon with more of these!
