Free crochet pattern Loopsy Daisy Coverlet and Shawl with blue gray and white flowers, by Susan Carlson of Felted Button | Colorful Crochet Patterns

::Loopsy Daisy Free Crochet Pattern::

I have a delightful and wonky free pattern to share with you today.


I'm calling it Loopsy Daisy and BOY IS IT SIMPLE to execute! Lots of chains with a slip stitch here and there and you've got it mastered! Here's the cool part, if you have never done JOIN-AS-YOU-GO, then this is the pattern

to give it a try! It's super easy.

So let's get on with the pattern:

  • Yarn: Martha Stewart  Extra Soft Wool Blend in Igloo (A), Gray Pearl (B) and (C) Bakery Box White. Depending on the size of your chosen project, you can easily calculate the amount of yarn required by working a single motif, measuring the length of the yarn used and then multiplying this by the total number of motifs. (#4 Worsted/Aran; 3.50 oz./100 g; 165 yd/150 m; 65% Acrylic, 35% Wool)
  • Hook: H (5.0mm)
  • Tapestry or yarn needle

Notes:

  • Rnds 2-4 are all worked into Rnd 1.
  • The flowers are joined as-you-go during Round 4. Think of each flower as a hexagon. You will be joining to adjacent flowers at the petal tips of each ch-11 loop from Round 4.

Dimensions/Gauge:

  • Motif = approximately 3 inches (7.5cm)
  • Coverlet = approximately 35inches (84cm) square after blocking. A color placement diagram is provided below for assistance with layout and attachment of motifs, however, you can make your project any dimensions you choose.

Stitch Abbreviations (US Terms):

ch = chain
sp = space
sc = single crochet
Rnd(s) = Round(s)
st (s) = stitch(es)
rep = repeat
sk = skip
sl st = slip stitch

 

First Flower:

Ch 6, sl st to first ch to form a ring

Rnd 1: ch 1 (does NOT count as a st), 18 sc in ring, join with sl st to first sc (18sc)

Rnd 2: (ch 7, sk 2, sl st in next sc) rep 5 times, ch 7, sk 2, sl st in first sl st (6 ch-7 petals)

Rnd 3: pulling ch petals of Rnd 2 forward and working behind them into skipped sts of Rnd 1, sl st into next sc, (ch 9, sk 1, sl st in next sc) rep 5 times, ch 9, sk 1, sl st in first sl st (6 ch-9 petals)

Rnd 4: pulling ch petals of Rnd 2-3 forward and working behind them into remaining skipped sts of Rnd 1, sl st into next sc, (ch 11, sl st in next sc) rep 5 times, ch 11, sl st in first sl st, fasten off  (6 ch-11 petals)

 

Color Placement:
 
Joining Additional Flowers:


Note: You will be joining during Rnd 4 to adjacent flowers in the ch-11 petal loops by replacing the middle chain (6th) with a slip stitch to the adjacent flower then continuing the working flower to the next petal tip join.

Work Rnds 1-3 for First Flower.

Rnd 4: pulling petals of Rnd 2-3 forward and working behind them into remaining skipped sts of Rnd 1, sl st into next sc, (ch 5, sl st in adjacent flower’s ch-11 loop, ch 5, sl st in next sc of Round 1) rep 4 times, ch 11, sl st in next sc , ch 11, sl st in first sl st, fasten off  (6 ch-11 petals)

Weave in ends.

Ta--Dah!!
Because the flowers are wonky and curly and loopy, you don't have to obsess too much about where you slip stitch along the chain to join your petals and it still looks pretty awesome! I like that.

You can find the PDF pattern in my Felted Button shop or Etsy here for a small fee--I appreciate your support! I decided to make a neat and tidy PDF so you can print it to go. It also includes a bunch of photos for extra help, if needed. But like I said, this one's easy peasy and doesn't need a lot of extra explanation. I hope you enjoy it!!
 
Meanwhile, I've got 7 new patterns on my hook, but with the course of life right now, no hooky time in sight. (Wouldn't it be cool if we could crochet in our sleep?) I won't be able to show you several of them as they are still very much in the preliminary phases now, but this one is coming along with all of the hexes done, at least. I love how squishy and soft. It's lovely yarn. Edit: This blanket pattern I've named Vintage Fleur can now be found here.
 
 
The colors make me happy. They really do.
 
I forgot to mention that Wink from A Creative Being mentioned Felted Button and my Puffy Patch Quilt this week in the Design Wars Newsletter! Go read page 11 and see what sweet things she had to say. What an honor, because she is so incredibly talented! You can find the pattern for this little blankie here.
 
 
 
I'm off to work in the backyard which is coming along nicely. The end is nearly in sight, but it might be next summer before I'll show it to you in all its glory!!
 
{On the Board} -- Be the most brilliant color in the box!
