Daisy Square Tutorial | Crochet Video Tutorial for Beginners | Stitch Explorers Series

Hi everyone! 👋🏼 Welcome to Stitch Explorers! 🤗. If you’re new to Stardust Gold Crochet, I do a weekly (sometimes biweekly) crochet stitch written and video tutorial. 🧶. I was calling it Saturday Stitch Explorers, but then life kind of got in the way and I sometimes do it on Sundays or I might skip a week but I try to be consistent.

This daisy square is, once again, my new favorite. I wish I had a 1000 hours to make *all* the crochet patterns right? Feel me? 😂 The Daisy Square consists of 4 rounds, and depending on what size hook and yarn you are using, it’s measurements will vary. My sample square measures 4.5″ (11.4 cm), using Scheepjes Stone-Washed DK.

The tutorial for this square is at the end of the post, and it’s a complete stitch through. 😁

Are you ready to make it?  Let’s get started!

I hope you enjoy this square! Happy Crocheting!

What can I make with the Daisy Square?

I’m thinking this square would make a wonderful throw pillow! It would also look great as a blanket using a thicker yarn, or even a chunky yarn. Perhaps a boho scarf, or even a cute market bag.
