Hi all =) It’s been a much steadier week this week which has been good. I’ve started a few new projects which I promise I will share with you guys soon, and me and my husband and been on some much needed date nights ❤

My yarn delivery also arrived this week, so look forward to the next few granny squares being extra colourful!

Yarn heavennn!

I hope you all are ready for this delightful square, as I made it last weekend and since then I have been dying to show it to you all! So without further ado…

CAL – Part 8

Granny Square – Daisy Square

All crochet patterns and terms I use are in UK, but if you want them in US then check out this handy stitch converter.

Materials:

  • Stylecraft DK yarn in yellow, blue, green and white – I got my colour set (pictured above) from Deramores, and you can also get white dk yarn from there too =)
  • 3mm hook
  • Sewing needle (optional)

Skills used/required:

  • Treble crochet (tc)
  • Half treble crochet (htc)
  • Triple treble crochet (ttc)
  • Chaining
  • Slip stitch (sl st)
  • Magic Ring

Daisy:

Row 0: In yellow yarn; 6Dc in a magic ring.

Row 1: 2dc in each stitch around. Fasten off. (12 stitches total)

Row 2: In white yarn ; crochet in front loops only. Attach to any stitch, *ch12, sl st in next stitch*. Repeat from * 11 more times. Fasten off.

Row 3: If you want to add the green stem and leaf, attach green yarn to any front loop on from row 1. Ch 12, dc in second chain from hook, dc in next 3 st, (ch4, 3 ttc cluster, sl st down last ttc in cluster), dc in final 6 st.

You should now have a lovely little daisy! I’m sorry I forgot to take pictures as I went this time, but I have tried to make the instructions understandable enough without the need for pictures!

Update: I have made the same square as a sunflower pattern!

Making the granny square:

Row 1: In blue yarn ; working in the back loops of the daisys centre only. Attach to any stitch, * ch12, skip stitch, sl st into next stitch*. Repeat from * 5 more times. Fasten off.

Working on the wrong side facing

Row 2: Working from the right side facing (with daisy petals facing up), attach blue yarn with a sl st to any one of the ch 12 loops. Ch3, 3tc in same 12ch loop, * ch3, 4tc in next 12ch loop*. Repeat from * 4 more times. Finish with ch3, sl st into 3rd ch from beginning ch3.

Row 3: Ch3, 4tc in ch3 space from previous row, * 2tc in next st, tc in next 2tc, tc, 5tc in 3ch space*. Repeat 4 times. Finish with 2tc, tc, 2tc, tc, sl st into 3rd ch from beginning ch3.

Row 4: (Ch4, 2tc, 2ch, 2tc, dtc) in same stitch, * skip st, 4 * htc, 2 * dc, 2dc in next stitch, 2 * dc, 4 * htc, skip st, (dtc, 2tc, 2ch, 2tc, dtc) in same stitch, skip st, 4 * htc, 6 * dc, 4 * htc, skip stitch, * (dtc, 2tc, 2ch, 2tc, dtc) in same stitch. Repeat from * once more. Finish with sl st into 4th ch from ch4 from beginning of row.

Row 5: tc in each stitch around; in the corner 2ch spaces tc2, ch1, tc2.

Once you have your finished granny square you can either attach the daisy leaf and stem to the square simply by sewing it down in one or two places, or you can just leave it as it is, it’s completely up to you!

I hope you like this square, and as always,

Happy crocheting all,

Abigail
