Materials Needed to Make a Daisy Granny Square
To make a crochet daisy granny square you need a few simple supplies
For this tutorial I’m using worsted weight yarn in 3 different shades. I like using a white yarn for the petals and contrasting yarn for the flower center and granny square border. Substitute a beautiful blue for the gray for a different color combination!
In this daisy granny square tutorial, I’m using a H 8/5.00 mm crochet hook which matches well with worsted weight yarn. If you are using a different weight yarn, be sure to select a hook size that is appropriately sized for the yarn you selected.
Like many crocheters, I learned to crochet with aluminum crochet hooks. But I’ve since upgraded to Clover Armour Crochet Hooks or Tulip Crochet Hooks. You can read more about my crochet hook journey in my Ultimate Guide to Crochet Hooks post.
The beauty of this Daisy Granny Square is that it uses very basic crochet stitches such as the slip stitch, double crochet stitch, treble crochet stitch and chain stitch. The center of the flower starts off with a foundation ring, but you could do a magic ring (also called a magic circle) if you’d prefer.
The secret to this daisy square is in how you form the puffy petals and that secret is all about placement. Where you insert the crochet hook, that is!
- ch = chain
- dc = double crochet
- sc = single crochet
- sl st = slip stitch
- st(s) = stitch(es)
- tr = treble crochet
