May Flowers Blanket Crochet Along Week 7: Daffodil

Daffodils are such a cheery flower that are little rays of sunshine, which is exactly the type of flower I wanted for my May Flowers Blanket! They’re our free crochet flower blanket square of the week for Week 7 of the May Flowers Blanket Crochet Along. With yellow and orange yarn, you create the different dimensions of the daffodil using tapestry crochet. It’s sunshine yellow colors make it a wonderful addition to our crochet flower blanket.

My Inspiration

As I was designing the May Flowers Blanket, I wanted to add a flower that had a lot of sunshine yellow to go with the sunflower block I had made. When I searched for flowers, I came upon a daffodil, and knew it was exactly the type of flower this tapestry crochet blanket needed! The unique shape of the daffodil looks so cool when done in tapestry crochet with the orange yarn as a contrasting color.

The Yarn

For this crochet blanket square, I only used Hobby Lobby I Love this yarn in orange and yellow for the flower, sage green for the stem/leaves, and periwinkle for the background. One of the things I wanted to capture with this flower design, was the three dimensional look that the daffodil has with its 5 pointed petals and the long base of the flower. To get this look I used orange to contrast with the yellow, and give the appearance the the other parts were in shadow so that it looked more three dimensional. I really love how it turned out even when worked in flat tapestry crochet. If you don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you, some other great affordable alternatives I enjoy using are: Caron Simply Soft, Red Heart Super Saver, or Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice.

Pattern Notes

  • This pattern is made using US crochet terminology, but the UK equivalents are listed in the Key.
  • If you come across a part where it’s just a color in between two commas, then that stands for just one half double crochet.
  • The pattern involves color changes using tapestry crochet. Experience with color work is recommended, but if you’re a beginner to tapestry crochet than you can totally do it!
  • For a complete color chart of each of the blocks, along with the written pattern and some bonus blocks, check out the 39 page premium pdf here.
  • I recommend reading through the pattern completely before beginning just to make sure that you understand everything in the pattern.
  • Color changes happen are indicated by the color appearing in parentheses. See chart for full picture of the color changes.
  • The arrows at the beginning of the rows indicate what direction the row is worked on in the chart.
  • If you’ve never done tapestry crochet before, I’ve created a beginner’s guide to tapestry crochet that shows you how to do it. See the written and photo tutorial at The Beginner’s Guide to Tapestry Crochet.

    Dear clair,
    I am doing the cal for this blanket but June 24 was the last post of this cal and I am missing 2 squares?
    I can’t find them elsewhere can you help me to finish this cal?
    Thank you and lots of love

      Hi, I got really sick with the flu the last two weeks so I haven’t released the two patterns for the last two blocks! I will be posting them this weekend though. If you want to work on them now, they are both in my premium pattern that has all of the blocks plus some bonus ones that I’ll be releasing! Sorry about the delay!

    I hope you are feeling better! I’m hoping to finish these up and get them sewn together for the county fair. All submissions go in this week, and I’m excited about this one! Just have a couple more rows left on this daffodil here. Thanks again for your lovely patterns and making them available here on your blog. And…I hope no one else in your family got the flu bug too, but it sure can go around a household quickly. Take care!!

    • Claire Goodale | 15th Jul 19

      Thank you! I will be posting the last two blocks later today! I want to make sure you can get it turned in for the fair!
