I love gray and yellow together, so when I was at JoAnn Fabrics and found this awesome gold yarn from Big Twist, I knew what I had to do. It was destiny, ya’ll!
Ha, maybe not, but I paired it with a lighter yellow and two shades of gray and the daisies came out dope AF if I do say so myself!
I made a pillow with mine and will be sharing the tutorial soon, but today is all about the daisy granny squares themselves! [Update: head here for the daisy pillow pattern!]
The inspiration for the modified daisy granny square pattern was an afghan block called Julia’s Flower, from MoCrochet. Julia’s Flower is a larger granny square, but I loved the center! I’d seen other daisy squares online, but they seem to be puffy, and kind of textured. These daisy squares lay flat.
Each square is only three rounds, and the final round is the same as classic granny squares, so you could easily rotate between daisies and classic squares in your project. It also means the daisy squares can be connected using the join-as-you-go technique, which is what I used on my daisy pillow.
That’s enough back story, right? Are you ready to rock? First, check your crochet stash or hit up JoAnn Fabrics for supplies!
