    About the Mini Daisy 2


    The official gauge for this floral series, including today’s project, is 10 rows and 9 stitches for 2x2in using dk yarn and an e/3.5mm hook. It is NOT critical to exactly match that gauge in order to successfully crochet the Mini Daisy 2, but that is the official gauge listed.

    Feel free to experiment with crocheting this flower in different weights of yarn other than dc. To avoid overly floppy flowers, keep your hook size small enough(compared to your yarn) that the stitches stay fairly tight.


    Made with the yarn and hook size that have originally been used, this second mini daisy design is about 1.5 inches across. Feel free to play with using other yarn sizes and/or hook sizes to get flowers that are larger or smaller. 

    Materials Needed

    For each tiny flower that you’d like to crochet, you will need: 

    • DK yarn- each one of these flowers uses less than 1 yard for color 1(for the center), and 3 yards for color 2( for the petals)
    • An E/3.5mm hook 
    • Scissors
    • A tapestry needle(this is optional, but good for weaving in ends.

    SKill Level

    This flower is worked in the round, but uses very basic stitches and would be suitable for a beginner to try. Be sure to watch the video tutorial below for full details! 

    Variation Ideas 

    Some ideas for creating variations with this pattern might be to use different weights/types of yarn, and to experiment with unusual color combinations!
