Sakura Coaster ♥ Crochet Pattern

Sakura Coaster Crochet Pattern
Late March to early May is sakura or cherry blossom season in Japan. It's on my bucket list to visit Japan during Spring just so that I can witness the beautiful sakura trees bloom. Until I have enough money to travel I will just have to enjoy the sakura trees through online pictures.

Since it's cherry blossom season I wanted to crochet something sakura-themed so I made a coaster for your drinks. I have so many coasters in my room because I'm always drinking something water, tea, or coffee.

Switch to a smaller hook,(I used a G/4.50 mm hook). To get that rounded sakura shape you are going to crochet a border around the flower. Insert your hook into a corner (preferably between two petals) and simply single crochet around the sakura, I did slip stitch on the tips of the petals to make the slits sharper. Weave in the ends and you are finished!
