Double Crochet Daisy Stitch

I couldn’t resist good people! I simply had to figure out how to make a double crochet daisy stitch, so we could all enjoy making small, medium and large (today's post) daisy crochet stitch patterns.

This pattern starts out like the medium daisy stitch, except the daisies are larger because they are made using double crochet clusters.

Foundation Chain: an uneven number of chain stitches

Step 1: Yarn over, insert hook in 2nd chain from hook, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook. 


[Repeat 3 more times over the next 3 stitches, so you have 5 loops on your hook]

Step 2: Yarn over, draw through all 5 loops on hook

Step 3: Chain 1 (to close daisy stitch); insert hook in center of chain you just made and draw up a loop

Step 4: Yarn over, insert hook under the last 2 vertical bars of the last double crochet stitch in the previous daisy; yarn over, draw through 2 loops [3 loops on hook]

Step 5: (Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yo and draw up a loop, yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice [5 loops on hook]

{Repeat Steps 2 – 5 for across row}

Beginning a New Row

Step 1: Chain 3, (yarn over, insert hook in next chain, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice; turn

Step 2: (Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yo and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice [5 loops on hook]

{Repeat Steps 2 – 5 for pattern}
