Good morning yarning friends! Today I’m going to walk you through a super easy crochet daisy tutorial. I came up with this flower several years ago in my first few months of rediscovering crochet, and I thought it was time to revive it. It’s a pretty cute flower – the only gripe I have is sewing it on, since the petals are a bit floppy and since I’m anal retentive I tack each. one. on. But the end results are well worth it!
(Personally I think the hat itself is kind of ridiculous, since it’s really not a hat but a doily, but if you want a pattern, I can probably figure it out again.)
Okay, to start: you’ll need daisy colored yarn (I used white and yellow) and your crochet hook of choice. This flower is easily adaptable to different weights.
Start with yellow yarn. If your dc are 3 ch high, ch4. If they are 2 ch high, ch3. 12 dc into the first ch. You could also use magic ring, but I never really figured it out and crocheting into the first ch always worked just fine for me. Sl st to first st.
Switch to white yarn. Sl st and ch8. (9, if your dc are 3 ch high). Starting on 3 ch from hook (or 4, if you have 9 ch), you’ll crochet into the remaining six ch: 3 dc, 2 hdc, 1 sc. Make sense? You’ll have three stitches of dc, two stitches of hdc, one stitch of sc, six stitches total.
Again, you’ll be sl st into the very next st when you are finished. You’ll end up with 12 petals of six st (3 dc, 2 hdc, 1 sc).
Completed daisy. Sl st the white yarn to the first petal, fasten off yarn, leaving a looooong white tail to sew onto desired project.
Hope this tutorial makes sense, and if not, you know where to find me! 🙂 Good luck and happy daisy-ing!
