Today is my Mom’s birthday. Her favorite flower was daisies so in memory of her, I wanted to share this adorable crocheted daisies tutorial. Mom would have been all over this pattern!
I’ve always liked daisies but now that she’s gone, I find myself drawn to them more and more. I have some of her daisy items now and keep them where I can see them every day. They never fail to bring a smile to my face.
Be sure to pin this crocheted daisy tutorial so you can refer back to this crochet pattern later.
Crocheted Daisy Tutorial
- Crochet hook – 3.5
- Yarn – light or medium light
- Tapestry Needle
Select yellow yarn for the center of the crochet daisy pattern. Start with a slip knot and then chain 5.
Form a ring with the 5 chain stitches by working a slip stitch through the first chain (the slip knot).
Work a SC (Single Crochet) through the ring.
Work a total of 12 SC through the ring. Work a slip stitch through the first SC after working the 12th SC. Pull out a few inches of the yellow yarn and then cut off the yarn from the bundle.
Select white yarn. Make a slip knot and then pull the slip knot through any chain (top chain of the yellow SC).
Now, work 7 chain stitches.
Keeping the hook on the 7th chain, skip the 6th chain, and then insert the hook into the 5th chain.
Work a SC through the 5th chain.
Work a HDC (Half Double Crochet) through the next chain.
Work a DC into the next chain.
Work another DC into the next chain.
Work a HDC into the next chain and a SC into the next chain, which should be the last chain stitch of the petal base.
Work a ST (Slip Stitch) into the next chain of the ring (yellow ring).
Similarly, crochet the next petal.
Continue to crochet petals (there should be a total of 12 petals) until your hook reaches the first petal. Finish the crochet with a slip stitch and then pull out a few inches of the yarn.
Cut off the yarn from the bundle (leaving a few inches extra). Attach a tapestry needle with the open end of the yarn and work running stitch on the backside of the daisy pattern.
After stitching the remaining yarn on the backside of the daisy pattern, cut off extra yarn (if necessary).
You can add these to a sweater as a little decorative touch, add a pin-back on the back to turn it into a brooch, attach to a headband, or find so many other ways to use these adorable little daisies.
