The Easy African Daisy Flower square is based on the infamous African daisy crochet flower, African daisies are the symbol of love and purity. Friends often offer daisies as a gift to new mothers as they symbolize new life, so why not make a baby blanket for a new mom?

Pattern is worked in the round , African daisy features in the center of the square. Unlike the real daisy that opens when the sunlight falls upon them and closes when the light fades, this little flower is sure to never fade away.

Skills required for pattern are to understand the basics of working in the round as well as joining different yarn colors and how to end and finish rows. Always ensuring that your final row count per side is correct or you will struggle to join your block at a late stage.

Gauge is not essential, but it's best to stick to the same yarn weight and crochet hook thru-out making your squares or your squares would not match up.Work ends, as you go will help you at the end when it comes to finishing the blanket unless you love spending a day at least to work on loose ends.

What you might need for completing this project

    Lightweight yarn like DK yarn, or double knitting yarn, or referred to by some crochet councils as the 3/Light category. You might see DK yarn labeled as 8-ply yarn in Europe and Australia.

    You can use any yarn of your choice, just note that by using lighter yarn and a smaller one, each square and blanket size will be overall smaller, by using a heavier yarn and larger hook, the squares will be larger and the overall blanket size will be bigger. 


    The example pattern uses a: 3.5 mm / US 4 /E-4 fo the example yarn used.
    But feel free to use the hook that suits your preferred yarn.


    I don't think tension is particularly important for this pattern,
    I would suggest sticking to the same hook and yarn across all Blocks and when joining, as this will ensure that all your Blocks match up.
