Anyone that follows me on Instagram has seen this flower already multiple times. The reason is very simple. This pattern works up so quick and easy and is an absolute yarn scraps remover. When I start making one, I usually end up making 5 or more, depending on the amount of scraps. Either because my left over needs to be completely gone (so I don’t feel guilty buying new yarn). Or one flower is just too sad and it needs a couple of friends. To share this feeling, I am sharing the pattern for this little Daisy flower, for FREE!
What you need
- One crochet hook, 3mm
- Some scraps/ left over yarn (I used some yellow and white cotton) any color is sufficient.
- A tapestry needle
- 5 to 10 minutes, if you are new to crochet the first few could take you 20 to 30 minutes.
The pattern, US terms
- To start you need to create a magicloop including 6 stitches.
- Increase each stitch, you will end up with 12 stitches.
- Cut the thread, this is the heart of the flower. Weave the ends in.
- Add white to one of the 12 stitches using a slip stitch.
- Crochet a chain containing 15 single crochet.
- Attach the chain using a slip stitch in the yellow stitch next to the one you attached the white yarn.
- You created your first flower petal, Repeat step 5 and 6 12 more times.
- You end up with a cute Daisy flower, containing 13 flower petals.
- Cut the thread and weave in the ends. Your flower is ready.
TIP: Would you like to create a different type of flower, be creative with the chain length. And the size of the heart. If you increase until 18 stitches (two rows instead of one) with a brown color and you make the loops smaller, you might end up with a cute little sunflower (not tried yet, just an idea that popped up in my head).
Possible ideas to do with the finished flowers
So now that you created a cute little flower, what to do with it. Well you can add it to a present or a card and send it to a loved one.
Make a broche or a hairpin with it. A necklace or a bracelet for a child. Make a few and put them together in a garland or in a vase. Let me know what you created with them, I am curious to see the finished objects.
