Blooming Coaster Crochet Pattern to Accompany the Blooming Tea Cosy in YARN 8

As you may have read in my previous post, for Scheepjes' YARN book-a-zine issue 8 (Sep 2019) called Tea Room I designed the Blooming Tea Cosy. 
Your response to it has been so amazing that as a thank you I've designed a coaster to accompany it. I hope you like the Blooming Coaster and that I will see you share it on social media with #bloomingcoaster @thecuriocraftsroom and #thecuriocraftsroom

The pattern is available in US, UK, Dutch and German and there's also a PDF version (same languages) that you can purchase in my Etsy and Ravelry shops for a small fee.

The advantages of the PDF are:
~ large chart
~ graphic design is the same as for all of my other patterns, so a clear layout with bullet point instructions
~ you support my crochet business so that I can keep publishing free patterns

Pattern Notes
I designed this Blooming Coaster to accompany the Blooming Tea Cosy I designed for Scheepjes book-a-zine YARN issue 8 called Tea Room. The Tea Cosy pattern is only available in the book-a-zine.

I prefer to start with standing stitches, not with chains. So e.g. if you have to start with a dc, you could start with ch3, but a standing dc will look nicer. You work a standing dc as follows:
slipknot on hook, yoh, secure yoh with index finger, insert hook into indicated st/sp and work a dc as normal.

The picots in this pattern are worked as follows:
picot 2: ch2, slst in second ch from hook
picot 3: ch3, slst in third ch from hook

Blocking
To get the most beautiful result, the coaster needs blocking. For blocking you can use special blocking mats or Styrofoam and pins, but you could also put a towel on your ironing board and pin it onto that. Spray with some water and let it dry naturally.
