In only two rounds of crochet, you can create a cute Daisy Design that can Add Pretty Details to any Project
Hello there, fellow crocheter!
Are you looking for something quick and sweet to whip up in just a few minutes? Do you have an itch to be creative with something very spring or summery? Do you enjoy using a variety of colors to bring some extra beauty into the world? If so, this crochet daisy design is perfect:
Today’s new pattern is actually part 4 of a 10-part crochet florals series. The floral wreath CAL is the original project that I created to feature all of these flowers, but they can really be used on any sort of project and stand alone as a collection. All 10 designs are quick and simple to create, but this daisy is one of the larger flowers. Consider it a statement piece!

About The Large Crochet Daisy
The official gauge for this project is 10 rows and 9 stitches for 2x2in using dk yarn and an e/3.5mm hook. However, I would like to stress that it is NOT critical to exactly match that gauge in order to successfully crochet this tiny flower(or any of the flowers in this series for that matter).
You can easily create this daisy using other weights of yarn. However, I would personally recommend keeping your hook size small enough(compared to your yarn) that the stitches stay fairly tight, so that your daisy doesn’t turn out floppy and loose.
Made with the yarn and hook size that have originally been used, this tiny flower is approximately 3 inches across. Feel free to play with using other yarn sizes and/or hook sizes to get flowers that are larger or smaller.
For each tiny flower that you’d like to crochet, you will need:
- DK yarn- each crochet daisy requires less than 2 yards needed in color 1(for the center). About 6 yards are needed for color 2(for the petals).
- An E/3.5mm hook
- A tapestry needle(this is optional, but good for weaving in ends(link to weaving in ends post).
This tiny 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
Some ideas for creating variations with this pattern might be to use different weights/types of yarn, and to experiment with unusual color combinations!

Switch to color 2
Round 2: ss into the first hdc from round 1. *ch7, skip 2 ch and hdc5. Then, ss into the next hdc from round 1.* Rep for every stitch, for a total of 10 petals. To finish the round, ss into the back of the first petal.
