Your World Needs More Cuteness: Spring Daisy Crochet Patterns

8 Comments

Crochet DaisyDaisies are one of my favorite flowers. They’re simple and cheerful and the ultimate symbol of cute. Just name something Daisy and its cuteness rating goes up exponentially. Take for instance Daisy the world’s cutest cat, Daisy Duke, Daisy Duck, Daisy Buchanan, Daisy Fuentes… the list goes on. But my favorite Daisy moniker is Daisy the Pterosaur, named for the nine-year-old girl who found this dinosaur’s bones in the sand while on a family visit to the beach.

Okay, daisies are cute: you get the point. Now you know why I included daisies in my spring diorama for Squirrel Picnic and why I have to restrain myself from embellishing everything within arms’ reach with these little flowers. If you too would like to add a little cheer to a headband, spring sweater, or Easter table setting, whip up a few of these easy crochet daisies.

  1. Oh yes, Daisy Duke. My heroine when I was a (very) young teenager. Hope I haven’t dated myself too much. Really cute!

  2. Thanks for sharing the pattern of the daisy.

  3. Totally delightful, can’t wait to try one!

  4. absolutely gorgeous! Do you have a pattern for the cute squirrels? Are they knitted or crochet? (I cant crochet very well – that is at all…). I love knitting tho 🙂

    • Thanks, nuttyboomboom! I love knitting too, but these squirrels are crochet. I haven’t published the pattern yet because I forgot to take pictures when I first made them. 😦 There’s been a lot of interest in the pattern though, so I think I’ll be making a friend for them soon. I’ll be sure to take photos this time!

  6. Love these, so simple and quick to make. Have added to my Project List, all 250+, but very high up. Might be making the in purple, lilac, white and silver to match a wedding theme, for embellishing a ring pillow and flower girl head bands. They are ideal.
