Little Daisy Crochet Stitch

by M. J. Joachim
Updated 4/20/16 

The Little Daisy Crochet Stitch is made almost exactly like the Daisy Crochet Stitch, except you start with an even number in your foundation chain, and instead of drawing through 5 loops on the hook, you only draw through 4loops on your hook to make each daisy. Consequently, your daisies are smaller and your pattern instructions slightly different.

Foundation Chain: Make an even number of stitches +3

Step 1: Insert hook in 2nd chain from hook and draw up a loop, insert hook in 3rd chain from hook and draw up a loop, skip 4th chain from hook, insert hook in 5th chain from hook and draw up a loop (4 loops on hook)

Step 2: Yarn over, draw through all 4 loops on hook

Step 3: Chain 1 (to close daisy stitch)

Step 4: Insert hook in center of chain just made, yarn over and draw up a loop

Step 5: Insert hook in last vertical bar of daisy stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop

Step 6: Skip next chain or stitch, insert hook in next chain or stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop (4 loops on hook); repeat step 2 – yarn over draw through all 4 loops on hook

{Repeat Steps 3 – 6 across row for pattern}

Beginning Each New Row

Step 1: Chain 3

Step 2: Insert hook in 2nd and 3rd chains from hook, yarn over and drawing up a loop for each chain

Step 3: Turn, skip 1st stitch, draw up a loop from 2nd stitch in row (4 loops on hook) 

Repeat steps 2 – 6 for pattern
