Guest Post: Daisy Garland Crochet Pattern

Alright, alright... I'm writing you from Denver today. Since I last posted, I visited both LA and Vegas, and now here I am in Colorado, drinking in the mountainous views and open spaces. LA and Vegas were both pretty whirlwind-y and unfortunately I just haven't been able to post here or on my Instagram as much as I'd hoped. I just think that all too often, pinning yourself behind a camera/phone really detracts from your actual experience of a place or thing. 

This post is extra special because it comes to you from one of my favorite crocheters & bloggy friends, Tanya! Tanya is amazing and wonderful and takes the loveliest photos and crafts the cutest projects. JUST LOOK AT THIS GARLAND. You know how I feel about garlands right? Cause like, I can't get enough of them. I want to string them everywhere for every occasion and also no occasion at all. Enjoy!

Hey everyone! It’s Tanya from Little Things Blogged! I am so excited to be sharing a totally spring pattern with you today! When Monica got in touch with me I was so thrilled and immediately decided to crochet a daisy garland! After all spring is all about flowers!:)



You will need:
  • Yellow, white & red 100% cotton yarn ( I used Catania)
  • 4 mm (G) crochet hook
Pattern:

Ch6 sl st to form a ring
R1: 12 sc in ring, join to first sc with sl st
Change to white yarn
R2: 1 ch, * 1 sc, in first sc of previous round, 15 ch, join with sl st to base of sc* repeat from * to *11 more times. (12 petals in total)
Fasten off.


To make the red flowers (make 2):
Using 4 mm (G) crochet hook and red yarn:
Ch6 sl st to form a ring
R1: *ch 3(counts as first dc), dc in ring, ch 3 sl st in ring,* repeat from * to * 5 more times to form petals (6 petals in total)
Fasten off.



To make the yellow/red flowers (make 4):
Using 4 mm (G) crochet hook and red yarn:
Repeat the red flower pattern but change color for petals
Fasten off.

To make the yellow bows (make 4):
Using 4 mm (G) crochet hook and yellow yarn:
Ch 32 and sl st to first ch to form a ring.
R1: ch 1, sc in same st, sc in next st, hdc in next two sts, 2 dc in next two sts, 3 dc in next st (forms the first corner) dc in next 2 sts, 3 dc in next st ( next corner), dc in next 2 sts, hdc in next two sts, sc in next 4 sts, hdc in next two sts, dc in next 2 sts, 3 dc in next st ( next corner), dc in next 2 sts, 3 dc in next st (next corner), dc in next 2 sts, hdc in next two sts.
Fasten off and tie center together using yellow yarn.
For bow tie:
Ch 20 + 3 (counts as first dc)
Dc in next two sts, hdc in next 2 sts, sc in next 10 sts, hdc in next 2 sts, dc in next 3 sts
Fasten off.
Attach to center of basic bow body by tying a knot with yellow yarn.



To make the garland:
You will always ch 25 in between the flowers and bows.
The sequence is: bow, daisy, yellow/red flower, daisy, yellow/red flower, bow, red flower, daisy (this is the center daisy of your garland). Repeat by following the exact sequence reversely.
Fasten off and admire your garland!

Thanks for having me and happy crocheting!:)
