We can’t have a new Crochet For Kidneys, without a new pattern can we? Part 1 had the Kidney Granny Square, Part 2 had Hexagon In Bloom and now Part 3 has the Delicate Daisy Square.

Delicate Daisy Square crochet pattern

You will need double knit or light worsted acrylic yarn in four shades and a 4 mm crochet hook.

I wrote the pattern in US crochet terms. In UK crochet terms, the SC = DC, HDC = HTR, DC = TR, TR = DTR.

Make an adjustable ring (also known as a magic ring). Ch 1, 16 SC in ring, slip stitch to first chain.

Round 1: Chain 11, slip stitch into same sc, *slip stitch into next SC, chain 11, slip stitch into same SC* repeat 14 more times (16 chain loops). Fasten off yarn.Round 1 of Delicate Daisy pattern

Round 2: Join new colour in chain space of any loop. Ch 1,  *SC in chain space, ch 3*. Repeat from * to * 15 more times. Join with a slip stitch to first chain.

Round 2 of Delicate Daisy patternRound 3. Chain 3 (count as DC), *3 DC in 3 chain space, DC in SC. Repeat from * to end. 64 DC. Join with a slip stitch to top of turning chain.

Round 4: Chain 2 (count as HDC), 2 HDC, 5 SC, 3 HDC, *[1 TR, 2 DC, 3 chain, 2 DC, 1 TR] in same stitch. Corner made. Skip 2 DC, 3 HDC, 5 SC, 3 HDC, skip 2 DC*. Repeat from * to * three more times. Join with a slip stitch to 3rd chain of turning chain. Fasten off.

You can use this method to turn any circle of 64 stitches, into a square shape.

Round 5: Join new colour to any corner space. Ch 1, *3 SC in corner space, 6 SC, Long SC, SC, Long SC, SC, Long SC, 6 SC.* Repeat from * to * 3 more times. Join with slip stitch to first chain. Fasten off. (Long SC is worked into the DC of round 3).

Round 6: Join new colour to 2nd SC of the three SC worked in corner space. [Chain 3 (count as DC), 2 DC, 3 chain, 3 DC]. Corner made. *DC in each SC and Long SC along to first SC of the three SC worked in the corner space (19 DC). [3 DC, 3 chain, 3 DC] in corner space.* Repeat from * to * two more times. Fasten off and weave away tail ends.

PLEASE NOTE: The squares in these photos are 13cm. To make the square suitable for the Crochet For Kidneys blanket, they need to be 15cm. If your tension is looser than mine, you may reach 15cm by Round 6. If not, do not fasten off round 6 and work as follows:

Round 7: [Chain 3 (count as DC), 2 DC, 3 chain, 3 DC]. Corner made. *DC in each DC of Round 6, [3 DC, 3 chain, 3 DC] in corner space. * Repeat from * to * two more times. Fasten off and weave away tail ends.

I hope you enjoy making this daisy flower square and that you won’t just use it for the Crochet For Kidneys blankets. These squares will make lovely cushions too! With three colours (plus the white border) the pretty colour combinations are endless!

The pattern is also listed on Ravelry here.
