Crocheting is becoming super popular again and for good reason! The rhythmic stitching with simple supplies of soft yarn and a crochet hook can calm your mind, reduce stress and you make something pretty at the same time!
Here are the easy instructions for a daisy crochet pattern. I give you step-by-step photos to show exactly how to do it. If you are a beginner, I have included video tutorials of the basic steps so you can make a crocheted daisy with ease.
How to Use a Crocheted Daisy
These crocheted daisies are so easy to make, you will probably want to make more than one! But what should you do with your pretty flowers? Here are some ideas:
- Wear as a brooch
- Sew onto purse
- Attach to a hat
- Wear as a necklace
- Use as a coaster
- Applique to sweater or jeans
- Christmas ornaments
These daisies are similar to our crochet flowers, but the daisies have solid petals instead of open loop petals. You can use them both in the same ways.
We also have a crochet sunflower pattern, too. Why not make a whole bouquet of these flowers?
Or try crocheting granny squares, too.
How to Crochet a Daisy Flower
- Crochet hook – 3.5 mm
- Yellow and White Yarn (either light or medium light weight)
- Tapestry Needle
Using the yellow yarn, start with a slip knot and then do 5 chain stitches.
*Wondering what a slip knot or a chain is? Here’s a simple video tutorial on how to make a slip knot and chain.
Make a ring with the 5 chain stitches by working a slip stitch through the first chain (the slip knot).

Work a total of 12 SC through the ring. Work a slip stitch through the first SC after working the 12th SC.
Pull out a few inches of the yellow yarn and then cut the yarn.
Now, with the white yarn, make a slip knot. Pull the slip knot through any chain (top chain of the yellow SC).
Work 7 chain stitches.
Keeping the hook on the 7th chain, skip the 6th chain, and then insert the hook into the 5th chain.
Work a SC through the 5th chain.
Work a HDC (Half Double Crochet) through the next chain.

Work a double crochet (DC) into the next chain.

Work another DC into the next chain.
Work a HDC into the next chain and a SC into the next chain, which should be the last chain stitch of the petal base.
Work a ST (Slip Stitch) into the next chain of the ring (yellow ring).
In the same way, crochet the next petal.
Continue to crochet petals (there should be a total of 12 petals) until your hook reaches the first petal. Finish the crochet with a slip stitch and then pull out a few inches of the yarn.
Cut off the yarn from the bundle (leaving a few inches extra). Thread a tapestry needle (one with a big eye to accommodate the thick yarn) on the open end of the yarn and work a running stitch on the backside of the daisy pattern.
After stitching the remaining yarn on the backside of the daisy pattern, cut off any extra yarn if any remains.
