I don't know if this has been done before, but quite probably, however this one came right out of my head - I banned myself from Googling a pattern as I wanted to see how I went with my experimenting.
You will need scraps of yellow and white yarn. I prefer the cotton yarn for these as it defines the stitched beautifully. I used Rico Essentials Cotton DK in Banana and White. I used a 4mm hook.
This tutorial is written in UK Crochet Terms.
So, start with yellow and a magic ring- this is simply a wrap of yarn around your fingers, and catch your first stitch into it. It can be a little be tricky to master, but it means you can close that little hole up very close which looks a lot neater.
- DC into the magic ring 12 times.
- Pull the tail tight so the ring closes up.
- Slip Stitch (SS) into the first DC to close.
- Working on the INNER LOOPS only (see where my hook is?)
- Attach white and Chain (CH) 9.
- SS into the next INNER LOOP
- Repeat all the way round.
- CH 9, turn your work over and now you will be working into the OUTER LOOPS (see them?)
- Work as you worked the front, pulling your yarn through the last stitch to finish.
- OK, it looks a little scraggy now so spread out your petals.
- Work in the ends, leaving one long white one to use to sew your daisy onto whatever you might be sewing it on to and Voilà!
- Make more.
