Let's Crochet A Pretty Gerbera Daisy In 3 Sizes!

As far as I can recall, my little girl always begged me for a Gerbera Daisy when we went grocery shopping! Even as a young adult, they are still her favorite flower. I was wanting to make something special for her new kitchen and decided I'd design a Gerbera potholder for her. Now I'm putting the cart before the horse just a bit, because I ended up crocheting the Gerbera in #10 thread first! So we will start with the thread ornament which is the perfect size for a hair clip, a shoe ornament, or a pin.

This ornament is classified "Intermediate" skill because of the use of treble and double treble crochet stitches. If you need to add these stitches to your repertoire, check out the YouTube tutorials below for right or left handed crocheters.

I hope you enjoy crocheting lots of these happy little flowers in a bunch of colors! Happy crocheting!

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.

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
