With the music festival season in full swing – it’s time to spread some crochet love! These Daisies are really easy to make – the hardest thing is working out what to do with all your flowers. Will it be some bunting, a bookmark, door curtain or retro belt and headband?
My daisies are made with Aran weight cotton on a size 4mm hook.
Ready for the pattern?
In yellow yarn, make a slip knot and then chain 4.
Join your chain into a ring by slip stitching into the 4th chain from the hook. Chain 3.
Now, work 11 UK Treble (US Double) Crochet stitches into the centre of the ring. Slip stitch into the 3rd chain of your original 3 chain to close the circle. Fasten off your yarn.
Join your white yarn into one of the chain spaces (gaps) between your UK Treble (US Double) stitches. Work 12 chain stitches.
Apologies for the shine on some of the pictures – I took the photos on a train and the table had a bit of a gleam! Nothing like a bit of crochet on the go!
Anyway, back to the pattern!
Make your first petal by working a UK Double crochet (US Single) into the chain space where your petal chain started.
Slip stitch into the next chain space then chain another 12 stitches.
Work a UK double (US single) crochet stitch back into the same chain space to form your next petal, then slip stitch into the next chain space and work another 12 chains.
Carry on like this until you have 12 petals.
Finish off the round by working a slip stitch back into your first petal position. Fasten off your yarn and work in the loose ends.
Once you have made enough delightful daisies for your needs, ‘block them’ into shape. I blocked mine by pining the petals into position on my ironing board and hovering a steam iron about an inch above.
The last step is to join your daisies together using a chain of green yarn looped through a petal on each flower.
If you prefer smaller daisies, like the one on the left in the photo below, you could always work a yellow ring of UK doubles (rather than UK trebles) and form shorter petals by making a smaller number of chain stitches (8 rather than 12).
Otherwise, just use a thinner weight yarn and smaller hook!
thankyou for this lovely easy daisy ive just taught myself to crochet iam totally hooked,everybody is impressed cant belive how easy it is to make something so beautifull
It’s such a lovely fun pattern, thanks for sharing your feedback
Hi, i am a big fan of family run festals, and i love this idea of the dausy bunting, our campervan is also called daisy, is it possable to purchase some bunting from yourself for our camper…many thanks.
Thanks for your lovely message, I’m glad you like it. Your campervan sounds beautiful. At the moment I’m not set up to sell my makes as its only a hobby. If anything changes I’ll let you know.
Very easy pattern and pretty.think I’ll use a smaller hook and put them on baby booties.Ty
What a lovely idea, the booties will look so pretty. X
Should there be 11 or 12 petals when complete? I’m a little confused since there are really only 11 spaces, but some pictures show 11, some 12 completed petals on the flowers. Sorry if this is a silly question, I am new to crocheting.
Most of my daisies have 12 petals so I guess that’s the aim. I do think crochet should be fun, so if you get 11 because a stitch is missed I won’t worry too much, they will still be beautiful. X

Cute! I wonder if my new baby boy would mind having a daisy headband…
I love these. So pretty, and you’re right -easy too. Thanks so much for sharing!
Thank you for your lovely comment. X
Ooh I love!
Thank you. X
That’s really cool!
Thank you. X
Gorgeous. I am making a chain of these for a friend’s new baby, to hang in her room.
I bet they will look so pretty. X
Simply adorable! If I didn’t have such a standard modern red brick house (and a partner who simply couldn’t cope with crochet bunting strung across our windows) I would do exactly the same! – However, he is away during the week 😉
Sounds like a great ideal opportunity to get your hook out
Sounds like a great opportunity to get the hook out and create some welcome home bunting!
oh, these are beautiful – makes me wish I was good at crocheting! as soon as I find my crochet thingies (are they called needles or hooks??) I want to try this. It’s been YEARS and YEARS since I’ve tried to crochet.
Thank you. Find your hook and have a go! The pattern should be quite easy to follow. X
How pretty 🙂 I’ve made these daisies before, but never thought of making bunting with them. It looks gorgeous 🙂
They are so versatile. I love the way the daisies move in the breeze when the windows are open. X
So very cheery.
Thank you. X
too sweet for words 🙂
Thank you – I’ve hung the bunting in my front window to make people smile!
good idea. I’m thinking, across the back window of my car? 🙂
Love it. What a great idea. X
