Last April I created the Sunflower Granny Square Crochet Tutorial and you LOVED it! So, I decided that as we head into spring, it would be fun to add a new flower to the mix… the daisy! So here is the Daisy Granny Square Crochet Tutorial. This daisy granny square is so cute and fun to make.
This daisy granny square is great because you can make it assembly line fashion, and it is a good portable project. You don’t have to have a giant blanket to cart around, you can bring 1 ball of each color and make this project on the go whether you are traveling in an RV or even on an airplane.

Over the years, I have created many crochet granny square patterns. Here are a few if you are looking for some additional granny square inspiration!
3 Ways to Join Granny Squares
There are several ways to join granny squares. I made a video on my 3 favorite ways to join granny squares that will help you determine which method you would like to use to join the granny squares together. I love the classic look of granny squares and the colorful options you can have!
Materials Needed to Make the Daisy Granny Square
Chances are, you will want to make more than 1 of these daisy granny squares. At the bottom of the pattern, I have a free lap size blanket pattern worked out if you love this and want to make a blanket! Also, if you want to make something smaller or add these to a bag or pouch, you will only need 1 ball of each color (depending on what you want to make). You will also need a crochet hook, yarn needle and some scissors.
- 30 inches yellow yarn (size 4 yarn)
- 123 inches of white yarn (size 4)
- 176 inches of background color (size 4)
- Take your yellow yarn and hook and begin with a magic loop.
- Place 8 sc stitches inside the magic loop, join with a slip stitch and fasten off.
- Join white yarn in one of the sc stitches and chain 3.
- First daisy petal: after the ch 3, you need to do a 3dc crochet cluster. yo, insert hook, yo, pull through, yo pull through 2 loops only. repeat 2 more times until you have 4 loops on your hook. yo and pull through all 4 loops. ch 2. (the chain 3 counted as a dc)
- Remaining daisy petals: make a 4 dc cluster in each remaining sc stitch for a total of 8 petals. yo, insert hook, yo, pull through, yo pull through 2 loops only. repeat 3 more times until you have 5 loops on your hook. yo and pull through all 5 loops. ch 2.
- Once petals are complete, join with a slip stitch at the top of the initial ch 3 and fasten off.
- Join background color yarn and ch 5.
- Place 3 dc stitches in the same stitch as the ch 5 (the is part of the final corner).
- Make 3 dc stitches in the next ch 2 space.
- In the next ch 2 space, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc for the first full corner.
- Repeat steps 9 and 10 until you get back to your ch5. 2 dc in the space before the ch 5. sl st to the 3rd chain of the initial ch 5 and fasten off.

These instructions are to create 1 granny square. I have worked out the pattern for a lap size blanket that measures 51 x 51 below:
Lap Size Daisy Granny Square
17 squares wide x 17 squares down. Total of 289 squares.
Yarn used: Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek low pill fiber from Hobby Lobby. This ball of yarn is 5 oz, 142 g, 232 yds, 213 meters. recommends a J-10 6mm hook and retails for $3.99. This yarn is very similar to red heart with love or vanna's choice. There are many amazing yarns that would be great for this project. Keep in mind that the math will be different if you pick a different yarn than I used.
Yarn Requirements for lap size blanket:
Yellow Yarn - 2 balls
White Yarn - 5 balls
Background (Blush) - 7 balls
*This does not include the yarn needed to join the squares together. You will need an additional ball or more of background depending on which method you choose. If you sew them together, you need 1 additional ball. If you join as you go with an additional round of background you will need more, but you can make less squares with that method since they will be larger. If you are unsure, I recommend buying more yarn and keeping the receipt so you can return it if you are on a budget and ensure they have the yarn you need should you run out in the future.
