How To Crochet A Trio Of Daisies

 Three Perfectly Pretty Daisies

Welcome to my New Crochet Tutorial : 
I think you will love making these beautiful Spring / Summer Daisies.

My pretty 'Trio Of Daisies Design' enables you to, make a 6 petal, 8 petal and 10 petal daisy flower each building on the other.

I have designed these daisies using 100% cotton, mainly because it holds the crisp shape of my daisy, can be machine washed and dried with ease, whilst retaining the perfect shape and colour of the Daisy.

This is a wonderful, easy, versatile pattern, you can play with colour, yarn ply and hook size to make variations of this daisy.

I have the daisies with a simple edging making them easily, compatible for sewing them onto other items as a beautiful motif / appliqué, adding detail to a project or sewing together to make various decorations. 

My pretty Daisies are easy & quick to make; and great for using up your ‘odds and ends’ of scrap yarn. They are hugely versatile and can be used as basic motifs 
I will also be using this basic pattern to make many wonderful & beautiful projects, for all seasons and events. So stay in touch.

Have fun and Happy Crochet.


I have tried to write all my patterns to be as inclusive as I can.
I try to include all UK and US variations, including stitch, yarn & hook terminology.



For this tutorial you will need the following materials:

  • Double Knit / Light Worsted Weight - 100% Cotton Yarn: 4.5 metre’s (approx 5 Yards) Yellow Yarn (Centre Circle of Flower) - 10 metre’s (approx 11 Yards) White Yarn (Petals of Flower)
  • Size 4 mm (Metric), 6 (USA), 8 (UK) Crochet Hook
  • Yarn Needle & Scissors
  • Stitch marker (optional) TipI often use a contrasting piece of yarn as a stitch marker it’s just as effective.
