Worsted-weight yarn means this project doesn’t take long to do, and scrap yarn is perfectly suited for it. You’ll need about 17 yards [16 m] per coaster. Any fiber content works, but I used wool for the samples shown.

I used a size H-8 [5 mm] crochet hook. Use whichever size you need to achieve gauge. If you are using a smaller yarn, you’ll need a smaller hook and will make a smaller Star Flower snowflake. A larger yarn and hook will yield a larger Star Flower snowflake.
