Crochet a daisy chain
Bring the freshness of a summer meadow into your home with this
everlasting daisy chain. You can make the garland chain as long as
you care to, and even use up oddments of mercerised cotton yarn
to create a kaleidoscope of coloured flowers.

Tension:
Each daisy motif measures 7cm (2 ¾ in) in diameter using a 2.5mm (US size C/2) hook.

Size:
Daisy chain measures approximately 234cm (92in) long

Yarn note:
The daisy chain weighs approximately 28g (1oz) in total, so only small amounts of yarn are required.

    spacing by eye.
    Using a single strand of A (or a
    matching sewing thread) and a
    sewing needle, catch stitch the
    back of each daisy at its centre,
    for approximately 1 cm (3⁄8 in), to
    the chain.
    Sew in any loose yarn ends.
