Daisies provide some of the loveliest inspiration for crochet — and the best part is that it’s really easy to crochet a daisy motif.

There are many different possible ways to crochet a daisy. One of the most common methods is to start by crocheting a circle using yellow yarn or crochet thread for the center of the daisy; and then to change colors and work individual petals using white yarn or crochet thread. Simple crochet daisies made in this manner can be used as flower appliques to embellish hats, headbands and many other types of projects. Some crochet pattern designers use these flower motifs as the centers of daisy granny squares or hexagons, which are then easy to use for creating crochet daisy blankets and afghans. Some crochet daisy patterns include instructions for working green leaves, and others omit the leaves.

It’s also possible to crochet daisy designs back and forth, in rows, using charted designs.

This daisy design by Haafner Linssen is a bit different than all the other daisy motif patterns featured on this page. How is it different, you might ask? The daisy design itself isn’t crocheted; it’s a flower loom design. However, you finish the daisy by working simple crochet stitches all the way around the loomed flower motif.


You can take a bunch of these daisies and join them to make blankets, shawls, scarves, table linens, or whatever other sorts of projects you might like. This pattern is included in a book called Crochet Loom Blooms, published by Interweave.

4. Sunny Daisy Potholder

To make this daisy-themed potholder exactly as shown, you’ll need to crochet two different hexagon motifs from Sandra Eng’s book called Crochet Kaleidoscope, published by Interweave. Then you’ll need to do a bit of additional finishing; whipstitch the two hexagons together; add a shell stitch edging with each shell comprised of 5 double crochet stitches, alternated with crochet slip stitches. There will be 2 shells on each of the octagon’s 8 sides. Then add a round of surface crochet slip stitches where the edging touches the body of the potholder.

5. Daisies Won’t Tell

Daisies Won't Tell: A Crochet Flower Motif Pattern by Jean Leinhauser. The original pattern was modified, crocheted and then photographed by Amy Solovay, resulting in the picture you see here.

To make this daisy exactly as shown in my photo on this page, you’ll need to modify a pattern from Jean Leinhauser’s book called 50 Fabulous Crochet Thread Motifs, published by Leisure Arts. The two pattern modifications I made:

  • I worked the pattern using Cascade 220 wool yarn instead of the crochet thread that’s suggested in the pattern.
  • I changed colors after the second round, whereas the original colorway is solid rather than yellow and white.

6. Popcorn Daisy

This is a solid-colored daisy motif with 6 flower petals. Textured popcorn crochet stitches add emphasis to the center of this flower. This is a second daisy design from the book 50 Fabulous Crochet Thread Motifs that I mentioned above.


There’s also a third daisy design included in that book, but I’m not including it on this list because I don’t think it actually looks all that much like a daisy. But overall, the book is a worthwhile buy if you enjoy crocheting daisies and a variety of other motifs using crochet thread (although I used yarn rather than crochet thread to work all the samples I’ve made from this book, and all of them turned out lovely).

7. Daisy Barrette

A book called Quick Crochet With Flowers includes multiple daisy patterns. First, you have a small daisy and a large daisy. Then on top of that, the book includes 5 other projects and ideas for using those two daisies — plus a whole bunch of other flower and leaf patterns, too.

One of the ideas is the lovely barrette you see pictured here. In this project, you combine a daisy with a leaf motif and another flower motif, called “Billy Buttons”. Isn’t this gorgeous? LOVE IT!

8. Crochet Daisy Purse

Wouldn't you enjoy making and using this gorgeous crochet purse with daisies? You'll find this pattern in Quick Crochet With Flowers by Amy Gaines, published by Leisure Arts.

I’ve only pictured two of the crochet daisy themed projects that are included in that booklet here on this page — but there are three others, including a drawstring purse, a headband and a gorgeous wreath. If you want to crochet daisies, this book is one of the best bargains you’ll find on crochet flower patterns. It’s a super high value for the money you spend on it.

Emma Lamb has designed a simple and lovely daisy she calls the “Folk Daisy,” which is included in a beginner’s crochet pattern book called Mollie Makes Crochet. If you’re new to crochet and you need a step-by-step beginner’s course, complete with a broad variety of beginner-friendly patterns that include some flowers and bunches of other types of patterns, this is a fantastic crochet book to add to your library.

These 9 designs are my go-to crochet daisy patterns when I need to crochet a daisy for various purposes. I’m sure there are many other fantastic daisy patterns out there, and I’ll be on the lookout for them. Please feel free to suggest your favorite daisy crochet patterns and I will consider adding them to this list.
