Daisy Square

The Daisy Square is a crochet Daisy in the middle of a Granny Square. Back in the 70s I made these (in bright, hot colors) to adorn clothing and accessories. But also to create 'outfits' that matched out of things that didn't even come close. Maybe it's time to bring this back?

I'm sure someone else has thought of this, or even created it, but this idea has been in my pattern basket since 1971. If you know of an 'original' creator of this exact pattern, please let me know so I can give them credit.

Making the Daisy Square

Slip Knot a stitch onto your crochet hook in the color you want for your square.

Each peddle end actually has 3 chain stitches. To attach your yarn you'll be catching the outside loop of each chain stitch.
