Crochet daisy flower
Daisy is such a beautiful flower that brings spring on my mind and with this free and beginner friendly pattern your can make a whole filed of them.
You can use this easy crochet daisy flower for a brooch, hair pin, bookmark, pendant, applique, spring wreath, ... and much more
You can use this pattern in a single or a double layer of petals, because the petals are worked in back loops and front loops but both work wonderful.
The stitches used in this pattern:
- magic ring
- sl st – slip stitch
- ch – chain stitch
- sc – single crochet stitch
- hdc – half double crochet stitch
- dc – double crochet stitch
- crochet hook (3mm)
- yarn (appropriate size for the crochet hook and color) I am using white and yellow
Pattern for the center piece – in yellow:
- R1: 6sc – 6st
- R2: 6inc – 12st
You can make another round to make the center a bit bigger with a (sc, inc) x6, so you get 18 stitches at the end.
Cut yarn, join invisibly.
Pattern for the flower petals:
- R1: back loops only
(sl st, ch5, in the 2nd stitch from the hook, sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sl st in the same back loop) repeat 12 times
- R2: front loops only
(sl st, ch5, in the 2nd stitch from the hook, sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sl st in the same frpont loop) repeat 12 times
The diagram for the petals:
You can check how it is done in my YouTube video tutorial where you can see how I attach the white cotton yarn, switch R1 and R2 for the petals and finish the daisy:

Example for a daisy bookmarker
If you wish to make a bookmarker, you need to do the following next steps:
Pattern for the crochet leaf - I colored the rows in the diagram and connected the colors with the rows
- R1: ch6 - black
- R2: ch1, 6 sl st in the 6 chains - red
- you work this round around the slip stitches and the chains: ch1, sc, hdc, dc, dc, hdc, sc, ch1, sc, hdc, dc, dc, hdc, sc - green
- join with the sl st and continue, DO NOT CUT THE YARN - green
- R1: ch6 - green
- R2: ch1, 6 sl st in the 6 chains - black
- you work this round around the slip stitches and the chains: ch1, sc, hdc, dc, dc, hdc, sc, ch1, sc, hdc, dc, dc, hdc, sc - red
- join with the sl st - red
To make the border around the leaf you make in each stitch the next stitches (a stitch in a stich form the previous row)
- sc, inc, sc, sc, inc, sc (one side of the leaf) - blue
- sc, picot, sc (in the ch1 space) - blue
- sc, inc, sc, sc, inc, sc (second side of the leaf) - blue
And repeat the same on the other leaf. Join in the end with a slip stitch, where you pinch together where the two leaves join and do the chains for the length of the bookmarker.
The backside of the flower:
- (sc, inc) x6
- (sc, ch2) X18
Join with a slip stitch and sew the flower with the bottom part of the bookmark together.
