I don’t know how it’s been where you’re at, but it has been a cold winter round these parts. I always get so excited when I spot my first Spring flower. It promises warmer days ahead. I wanted to share the joy of those first Spring flowers by showing you how to make a cute crocheted daisy.

About The Free Daisy Crochet Pattern

While this is a beginner crochet tutorial, it shouldn’t be your first project. It’s a great crochet tutorial for those who want quick finish projects that won’t tire your wrist out too much.

To make a crochet daisy, the tutorial uses yellow yarn for the center and white for the outside. Use black in the center and yellow for the petals if you want a Black Eyed Susan. And switch out the colors however you’d like to crochet any flower that has a smaller center with long petals.

These crocheted daisies have a number of uses. You could attach a crocodile clip to turn it into a hair accessory or glue it to a headband. You could wow guests with your crochet skills when you offer it to them to use as a coaster . You could use it as an applique and attach it to other crafts you’re working on.

Below, you’ll see stepped-out instructions with images. Right after it, there is a free printable “recipe card” that so that you can print this free daisy crochet pattern. This is a printer-friendly version that prints without step-by-step images and is only recommended if you already have some experience and will get the gist of it from text only.

This free pattern also uses pretty basic stitches. I don’t actually teach the stitches in each post as that would be excessive. So while this is beginner-friendly, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with the following terms and stitches first:

  • Chain
  • Slip stitch
  • Single Crochet (SC)
  • Half Double Crochet (HDC)
  • Double Crochet (DC)

What you need to crochet daisies

Free Daisy Crochet Pattern

1: To crochet the center of the daisy, start with your yellow yarn. Begin with a slip knot (which forms the first chain) and then chain 5.

2: Form a ring with the 5 chain stitches, by working a slip stitch through the first chain/the slip knot).

3:Work a SC (Single Crochet) through the ring.

4: Work a total of 12 SC through the ring, around the perimeter. 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 off the yarn from the skein. You can see that this formed a chain around the rim. You’ll be crocheting your petals into this chain.

5: Now take your white yarn white yarn. Make a slip knot and then pull the slip knot through a top chain of the yellow SC (it doesn’t matter which). 

6: Work 7 chain stitches.

7: Keeping the hook on the 7th chain, skip the 6th chain, and then insert the hook into the 5th chain.

8: Work a SC through the 5th chain.

9: Work a HDC (Half Double Crochet) through the next chain.

10: Work a DC into the next chain.

11: Work another DC into the next chain.

12: 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.

13: Work a ST (Slip Stitch) into the next chain of the yellow ring. 

14: Crochet the next petal like the previous one, by repeating steps 6-13 twelve times, one in each of your single crochets from the circle.

15: When your hook reaches the first petal, finish with a slip stitch and then pull out a few inches of the yarn. 

16: Cut off the yarn from the skein (leaving a few inches extra). Thread the loose tail of the yarn on a tapestry needle and weave through a few stitches on the backs of the daisy.

17: Cut off any excess yarn. Your crochet daisy is complete!
