It’s spring time, and I really craved to see some crochet daisy granny squares on the internet. What I saw was some beautiful and colourful work, but what I really wanted to see was simple and plain, life-like yet easy and practical crochet daisy granny squares, and that is where my simple puff daisy granny square comes in.

These simple puff daisy granny squares were a joy to create and re-create again!
I say “life-like” but really I think that the world could definitely do with more colour! And here they were, my beautiful puff daisy granny squares stepped right out of my imagination after a few hours of playing with yarn and they are exactly what I had in mind. This is a free crochet pattern for you to enjoy.
Aah there’s something about daisies, simplicity and these colours… They all just go together so well. So relaxing to make too… As crochet is in general 🙂

I also have another tutorial called “The Crochet Slip Stitch Method” that you can scroll down to within this blog post called Crochet Blanket Candy Cane Lane.
UPDATE: Here’s how I change yarn color now, so that there are no tails to weave in between rounds. If you use this method, you might not need to use the slip stitch join. Check out my tutorial How To Change Yarn Color In Crochet With No Tails!
