Daisy Flower Crochet Pattern


I've created a pattern for two different daisy flowers and if you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen me ask which one you like better...Because I can't decide! My daughters room has a daisy flower theme and I want to make some sort of crochet blanket to match her decor... but I can't decide which daisy would be best.


I think #1 is more groovy/hippie/cartoonish (the 6 petal daisy) and #2 looks more realistic. I was shocked to receive over 2400 Facebook comments about this flower! Thank you! It seems as though most of you like the realistic daisy better (option #2). I think this one is going to look great on a hat and many of you suggested layering two of them to make even more petals and dimension to it - I LOVE that idea! BUT I think I might have to go with #1 for my blanket... Once I decide on the yarn colors I will make a final decision but I think #1 will be easier to appliqué on and I like that the middle puffs out a little. It also looks cleaner and more babyish to me for some reason. When I get going on the blanket I will be sure to show all of you and then of course I will post the blanket pattern when I am finished :)

So lets get to these daisy flower patterns! Starting with your favorite, #2:

Materials:
-Worsted weight yarn in yellow (for the center) and white for the petals. I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Mustard (yellow) and White.
-Size G crochet hook
-Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
Magic Ring Tutorial
Sl St = Slip Stitch
SC = Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
TR = Triple Crochet

12 Petal Daisy Pattern:
starting with yellow yarn...
Magic Ring, chain 1 and make 6 SC in ring, join to first SC, chain 1
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around (12 SC)
change to white yarn...
Round 3: Chain 8, *TR in 4th chain from hook, TR in next stitch on chain, DC in next, HDC in next, SC in last chain. Join with a Sl St to next stitch from round 2 and chain 8, repeat from * all the way around. You should end with 12 petals.
Fasten off and weave in ends.

If your petals start to curl in a little, tug at the yarn and give the petal a stretch to flatten them out. The petals should overlap a bit.






6 Petal Daisy Pattern:
starting with yellow yarn...
Magic Ring, chain 1 and make 6 SC in ring, join to first SC, chain 1
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around, join to first SC (12 SC )
change to white yarn and chain 1...
Round 3: SC in each stitch around, join to first SC (12 SC ) at this point the middle should puff out a little
Round 4: Chain 10, *TR in 4th chain from hook, TR, DC, DC, HDC, HDC, SC in last chain, skip one stitch from round 3 and join to next stitch with a Sl St, chain 10, repeat from * around until you have 6 petals.
Round 5: SC around each petal, making a Sl St in the previous slip stitches (between each petal). 
Fasten off and weave in ends.






So there you have it! Two different daisies to choose from and I can't wait to see what you use them for!
