Daffy For Daffodils! Free Crochet Pattern

Are You Daffy For Daffodils?

I surely am! I watch eagerly for their arrival each Spring, and I always run out to pick the first bloom to put in a little vase to bring Spring indoors!

We're having a late Spring here in Nebraska and my daffs haven't popped out yet, so I had to create one for myself to enjoy!

This daffodil is created entirely in double treble crochet in two colors of thread. I've included a YouTube tutorial on double treble for right or left handers below in case you need to add this stitch to your repertoire. My little daffodil measures about 2.5 inches across and 1.5 inches tall. It would be perfect for a doily center, a pencil topper, a hair barrette, or a pin.

My daffodil is not starched yet but I will be doing so because I think it would add to its beauty to shape everything just the way I want. I'll include a photo of the starched daff when it's done and placed on its final destination.

Crochet one or a whole bouquet! I'm planning on crocheting several in all the different color variations of daffodils. Happy crocheting!

My favorite crochet hooks! They keep me crocheting despite severe arthritis.

 

A Word About Yarn & Thread Selection...

You may use different yarns such as scrap yarns or threads with good results! Just make sure to keep them similar in weight and thickness so as not to throw off the pattern.

Aren't They Beautiful?

NOTE: After finishing, I wanted my petals to be tucked more closely against the trumpet, so I put a slip stitch in each petal center attaching it to the side of the trumpet.

A Note From Your Designer...

Hi, I'm SheilaSchnauzies, also published as SheilaSparkles, and my life's passion is designing in Crochet! I also love to share gifts with friends, and this pattern is my gift to you! I give away about 95% of my pattern designs free. The other 5% are sold on my pattern store at Craftsy.com to benefit the vet expenses of my Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies.

Just one little favor, please... I would appreciate it if you do not post this pattern anywhere on the Internet or in the 'real world.' Instead, you are most welcome to provide a link to this webpage.

I use a system I call the "Official Schnauzer Difficulty Rating" just for fun, to rate the difficulty of my patterns. If it's a 3/5 or more, I'll explain why I consider it more difficult. A few of my designs use techniques that are a bit unconventional! If it's one of those patterns, I'll warn you ahead of time. I do a lot of custom-fit patterns, for example. They are made to fit YOU, not a measurement from a chart. They're surprisingly easy to do and actually end up fitting. That's a good thing, yes?

So glad you found my patterns! I hope you really enjoy making whatever it is you're making! Crochet hugs, -Sheila

      I love Daffodils and I saw this featured on my facebook page. I came in to look at the beautiful pattern. I read your story Sheila. I am going to order those crochet hooks. I have been saving up patterns that I would like to try. I am a very beginner. I have made some plain crochet blankets. I am visually impaired and learned to crochet at blind school. I want to make more things. I am excited as my hands were hurting so much so I am glad to see the crochet hooks with the larger handles. I can't wait to get one or two to start from a video to help me learn some of the stitches I do not know. Thanks again dear Sheila! :D
