Daffodil pattern

On the 1st of March it is St Davids day the Patron Saint of Wales! I feel he always gets a little over shadowed by good old St Patrick whose day is two weeks later. So to celebrate my Welsh heritage I decided to create a little Daffodil pattern, the national flower of Wales, for you all to enjoy! Use it in bunting, as an appliqué, in the middle of a granny square or how ever you like.

What you will need 

I used Lily Sugar n Cream DK yarn, as cotton is a little stiffer and holds it shape more, and a size 4mm hook.

The Flower
In orange start with a magic ring, CH 1, then 15 SC in the ring, SL ST to first SC and fasten off.

Attach yellow on any SC in the ring and *CH 2. Then in the same stitch do 1 DC and 1 TRC. Next the tip of the petal is a picot so CH3 and SL ST back into the front loop and the first loop of the post of the TRC to secure creating a point. In the next stitch 1 TRC and 1 DC then CH 2 and SL ST in to the same stitch creating the full petal. Skip 1 stitch * then repeat from * to * all the way round the ring for the remaining 4 petals.

For the trumpet

Back in the orange SL ST around the post of one of the orange SC’s in the beginning circle.Then SC around the next 2 posts skip 1 post an repeat so you have 10 SC in total. SC in the round building the trumpet up in SC until you have your desired height, I did 3 rows. Once you have your height, SL ST into the next few SC to level the trumpet off.

The Leaf
CH 8, SC in 2nd CH from hook, then SC in the next 2 stitches, HDC in next 2 stitches, DC in next 2 stitches, then 7 DC in last chain.
Now working on the other side of the chain, DC in next 2 stitches, HDC in next 2 stitches, SC in last 2 stitches (do not join yet), CH 2, join to first SC.

I attached the Leaf with a little touch of fabric glue, but you could sew it on to attach just as easily.

As you can see here I experimented with differences sizes and shapes of trumpets and decided the middle one looked the best and so that is the pattern I have chosen above.

I hope you enjoyed this pattern, please share you makes in our  Beyond The Square Facebook group or share on Pinterest!
