This week I am going to be showing you how to make a crochet Daisy flower. Daisy flowers remind me of summer days in school. Me & the other girls would search our school field for as many Daisy flowers as we could to make Daisy chains to wear on our wrist or if we had enough to make a Daisy crown.
This is the third pattern in a series of FREE CROCHET FLOWER patterns I have & will be sharing with you as we all try to stay indoor with our loved ones through the coming days & weeks.
My free Daisy Crochet pattern is written below with a simple step by step written photo tutorial or if you prefer a video tutorial, I have also made a Youtube video.
- 25 meters White of lace cotton yarn (or any yarn from your stash)
- 15 meters Yellow of lace cotton yarn
- 10 meters Green of lace cotton yarn
- 1.75mm crochet hook
- Yarn needle
- 20cm florist wire
- Cutting pliers
Gauge: N/A. Use the smallest crochet hook you can with your chosen yarn to create tight stitches, this will help your petals keep the form & not flop.
Size: With my lace yarn & 1.75mm crochet hook my Crochet Daisy flower is 4cm in diameter.
Notes: The receptacle is worked first then the petals will be worked from the back loops. Next the flower disk will be made from a crochet puff button. The wire will be attached next before the final assembly of all the pieces.
How to make a Crochet Daisy – Receptacle
Row 1: Chain 4, sl st into the first chain to make a foundation circle (as shown in the photo below),
Ch1, 5sc into the centre of the crochet ring, sl st into the first sc. Total 5sc.
Row 2: Ch1, 2sc in the same stitch, 4sc inc., sl st into the first sc. Total 10sc.
Row 3: Ch1, 10 sc, sl st into FRONT LOOP of the first sc. Total: 10sc.
Row 4: Ch3, sl st into the third from the chain to create a picot stitch, *(sl st into the FRONT LOOP of the next st, picot)* repeat * 8 times, sl st into the first picot, fasten off & weave in your ends. Total: 10 picots.
Row 1: Attach your yarn to the BACK loop on any stitch from row 2 of the Receptacle, ch8, sc in the second from the hook, dc, 3tr, dc, sc, *sl st into next back loop, chain 8, sc in second from the hook, dc, 3tr, dc, sc* repeat * 8 times, sl st into first st, fasten off & weave in your ends. Total: 10 petals.
To help demonstrate this technique I have also made a crochet video showing how to make a crochet puff button.
Row 1: Ch4, sl st into the first chain to make a foundation circle.
Place as many sc stitches you can into the centre of the circle.
Now sc over the first row a sc, pushing your stitches back behind the circle to create a doughnut shape, continue all the way around, repeating sc over this second row if needed until your crochet centre hole if no longer visible. On average this will be about 50sc stitches. Fasten off & leave a long tail.
Step 1: Fold the florist wire in half & ties insert the ends into the centre foundation circle created from the receptacles.
Step 2: Fold the florist wire over to secure your wire in place, twist the wire below the petal until the base.
Place the flower disk on top the centre of the crochet daisy & sew in place with the long tail over. Fasten off & weave in your ends. Block to straighten the petals.
