This is a pattern for a basic flower granny square and can be made to either a 5” square or a 6” square. There are numerous variations on this flower square and I will document them at a later date.
With appropriate yarn and recommended hook ch 5 join with a sl st to form a loop.
Rnd 1:
Ch 2 to count as first dc then work a further 11 dc into the loop, join with a sl st (12 sts)

Rnd 3: ch 2 , to count as 1st dc and work 2 dc into same space, work 3 dc into every 2nd dc space. Join with sl st. (36 sts)

those are cute - the round ones remind me of coasters ... if you made them out of cottone, they would be pretty used as coasters also...
