Crochet Daisy Granny Squares

Crochet Daisy Granny Square - Free Pattern www.thestitchinmommy.com

A lot of my friends and family ask me if I stop crocheting when the weather gets warmer. The answer is “Of course not!” The art of crochet is becoming so innovative and crocheters are becoming so much more creative with their fiber. We’re not making just hats, scarves and blankets anymore. Nowadays, you can just about crochet anything that you put your mind to. So, when the weather gets warmer, I like to use my yarn for making things around the house like these Daisy Granny Square Coasters. Not only are they cute and perfect for spring, but they are also easily washable which I love. I can be a little crazy when it comes to putting a cup on my table with nothing underneath. My kitchen table is so hard to clean so I always use a coaster. If you’re anything like me, then this is the pattern for you! Keep in mind that if you don’t care for coasters, these Daisy Granny Squares would make an adorable blanket.

If you’re feeling creative, you can add a pretty edging or just an easy single crochet edging in another color. Like I said, I use these as coasters but you can easily make a bunch and turn them into an adorable daisy granny square blanket. The pattern is pretty straightforward and it’s quick to work up. It took me about 15 minutes to make. You may or may not have to block these squares for them to lie flat. I was too lazy to block mine so I just pressed them between a couple of heavy books to get them flat. I hope you enjoy the pattern! Happy crocheting!

  1. Hello,

    I’m in love with this pattern! I am struggling with the start of round 4. It says chain 3 and then 2dc in the same stitch, but which stitch? Sorry I’m fairly new to crochet!

    Thanks
    Becky

  2. HI,

    I am wondering if you can tell me how to make the mc using just a chain….I am horrible at making a magic circle and I have a friend who really wants this afghan made for her. I have tried numerous times and I can’t get the magic circle in my head. Any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!! I have been trying for over 2 years now to make this and I get frustrated and lose hope because my magic circle will not work. Thank you

    1. Hi Julie! If the magic circle isn’t working for you, you can always chain 5, join in beginning ch with a sl st to form a circle and work your dc sts into the circle 🙂 I hope that helps!

  3. I can’t tell you thank you enough. I’ve been looking for something exactly like this and all of a sudden,POOF, it’s in my inbox. I can’t wait to add these to the Afghan I’m already making with different kinds of flowers. It’s going to be the perfect addition. I think you’ll like the colors, I’ll send you a photo when it’s done.

  4. Hi! I love this pattern but am having trouble with creating the petals on the double crochets. When I do the 3 ch, dc, tc, dc, 3 ch, sl st, it gets very bunchy and doesn’t lay flat. Am I doing something incorrectly? I know it’s vague, but maybe there’s an alternative or something? I love this pattern too much to pass it up!
    Thank you!

  5. How do I make a magic circle? I just started crocheting before Christmas after many, many years of not doing ut, Made scarves and hats for all my great grandchildren, an afghan for one great granddaughter, an afghan for one grandson graduating in May. I’m about to start making afghans for the rest. This flower (daisy) one is great, but I’m lost before I begin w ith that magic circle. If you can help, I’d appreciate it. Thanks Amy. Judiy

  6. I am attempting to make these Daisy Granny squares. I made my magic circle, now the pattern says to change to yarn for flower petal. I don’t know what to go into to start with the Ch3 etc. I am at the point where I have just joined the magic circle. Would you be able to help?

    Thank you,
    Diane Park

  7. Would like to know what the size is. Am making a bunch of 6″ sq’s to make a surprise afghan for a friend.
    This one looks great! Thanks for the pattern.

  8. I love how versatile this is – one could be a coaster, two or three strips could make a scarf, five or six strips could be a shawl, etc.

  9. I do not see any statements about being able to sell completed item. As long as I give you credit for the pattern, are you okay with me selling a finished product?

  10. This looks very pretty and will certainly start it very soon. I live in Jersey one of the Channel Islands, British Isles, so your pattern has travelled quite a way. Many thanks for sharing.

  11. Those are not only great as coasters, I use them also, but I agree, they would make a terrific afghan. I do a lot of charity crocheting and often use granny squares (and use the join as you go method since it is quicker to put together, at least for me), so these would be great for that. It would just kick it up a notch for something different and pretty. Or even a prayer shawl (do those too). Thank you so much for sharing your pattern.

    And no matter how I try, I just can’t get the hang of the magic circle. Believe me, I’ve tried.

  12. This is such a cute pattern! I’m planning on selling at a local (MN) craft fair in a couple of months — would it be OK with you if I make & sell this?

  13. Thank you I want to try this. Its very cute and more appealing than the traditional granny square. More of a maiden square. Great work. Thank you!

  14. I’m hoping to give these a try soon. Making a granny square afghan for my daughter. I’ve got like 30 more squares to go…she just mentioned how cool it would be to have random daisies in it….so I’m in hopes I can pull this pattern off…kind of a novice….thanks for the inspiration!

      1. Ummmm….I was all set to start…..what is the magic circle….and how do I do it? I was all set to start your daisy granny square, but the magic circle threw me for a loop… thank you.

        1. There are many tutorials on the web that show how to do a magic circle. It’s super easy and doesn’t leave a “hole” like a chain 2 might. Here’s a tutorial that I personally like but if you’re not comfortable with it, you can always ch 6, sl st into the beginning ch and then continue on with the dc’s. Hope that helps!

  15. Thanks for the pretty Daisy Square pattern! These will be great make-ahead gifts to have on-hand for last minute and unexpected events. I have to make a set for myself first though!

  16. These are so cute! I crochet and knit year round, too. I just switch to smaller projects and cotton yarn in the warmer months. Pinning these so I remember to make some – thanks for sharing.

  17. These are darling. I learned same basic crochet as a girl (100 years ago) but never made a granny square. Yours is the pattern to try, love the flower in the center. Will dig out some colored yarn tonight. Happy stitching! In addition to my quilt blog I just started another blog knottedthreadsandyarn.blogspot. Love your blog and your Pinterest site.
