Daisy square

Design by Maria Jansson Brygt @Micmarmik

The story behind the pattern.

Last summer I crocheted a lot of Dahlia-Daisy squares, but I only made a pattern for the center part (the flower). The Dahlia-Daisy square can be crocheted in two different ways, hence the name. One variant becomes a Dahlia and the other a Daisy. Read more about it here.

This is the Daisy square pattern, if you want to crochet the Dahlia square click here.

Introduktion

First you need to do some Dahlia-Daisy flowers, as many as you need. Then you can make Daisy squares!
You can follow the chart below or you can find the Dahlia-Daisy flower pattern here.

The stitches in the pictures are the stitches I crocheted (not what they count as).

Alternatives

The pattern below can be adjusted, depending on your own preferences. For example:

  • You can start each round with a standing stitch where ever possible, instead of a ch.
  • You can end each round with an invisible join where ever possible, instead of a sl st. 
  • I prefer to weave in the ends after each round, for best result. You can choose to do that after finishing all rounds as well.

Dahlia-Daisy flower (round 1-5)

Crochet some Dahlia-Daisy flowers. Use the chart below or go to the pattern here.

When you have crocheted all the  Dahlia-Daisy flowers you need to attach all loose yarn threads, if you haven’t already.
