Now that the snow has FINALLY melted it’s time to get cracking on some bright and cheerful spring crafts!
Here is a tutorial for a delightful daisy square!
•3 balls of sport weight yarn. I chose a ball of turquoise Patons Classic Wool, a ball of gold Patons Canadiana and a ball of white Patons Astra yarn. The colours and the type of yarn are up to you depending on your desired project. I just chose what I had lying around within arms reach.
•4.5 mm crochet hook (or hook appropriate to yarn selected)
1) Ch 4, join to form ring. 8 dc in space. This is the center of your daisy.
2) Change colours, (sc, dc, 3 tc, dc, sc) in each stitch to form 8 petals.
3) Ss in each stitch along side of first petal until you reach the top center of the petal or middle tc space.
4) Change color. Ch2, 2dc in middle tc space. *3dc, ch2, 3dc in middle tc of next petal, 3dc in middle of next petal, repeat from * until end, join with ss to top of ch2. Weave in ends.
Granny squares are great. They are the perfect on-the-go project. You can crochet them one at a time, throw them in your purse and assemble them later into pretty much anything that you want. Placemats, tablecloths, cushion, seat covers, garments, purses, afghans. The world is your oyster! Happy hooking!
