Crocheted Daisies

Daisies are one of my favorite flowers. I like all the varieties ... Purple Coneflowers, Black Eyed Susans, and the simple white daisy.  There is just so clean and refreshing about the simple white daisy.   Perhaps it has to do with that plucking off the petals many of us did as little girls.  (You know ... he loves me, he loves me not).

Crocheted Daisy Edgings, Free Pattern
This pattern for a Daisy Luncheon Set comes from the 1949 Coats and Clarks Book 258 - Floral Doilies. Here they have highlighted the simplicity of the single daisy motif by encircling linen circles to create placemats, along with smaller mats for the saucer and water glass.

Here's another Daisy on Linen Design.  This one is from Lily Mills, 1943.   Here, the daisies are a little simpler on design and a tab bit smaller.   An extra touch is added by placing daisies on the linen itself.

Both these daisy design, of course, have other potentials as trim on clothing, household accessories, curtains, hair bands ... whatever you might like.

Perhaps you will give it a try ... they are both available as Free Downloads in the shop ... just follow the links under the picture.

Thanks for dropping by, Lorrie
