Yay! It is from the pattern by Krochet Krystal
http://krochetkrysta...ity-square.html

I hope she will like it and be able to use it. It's 8" so I am sending this one off to her for her afghans. Then I'll make some more!

The trick is to make sure your yarn is in the right spot *before* you change colors! Otherwise, it'll end up behind and you won't be able to crochet with it on the next round :) I had to unravel a few times before I got the hang of it hehe.

Going to make a few up to put in my squares pile for a someday-afghan hehe!

Thank you both :)

Yeah it was tough at first. The trick is to always make sure when you're putting a loop from one color onto a temporary stitch holder that you push it to the front of the work slightly, as well as the yarn from it to the skein, put it to the front of the work too. Otherwise it gets stuck behind and your whole daisy square won't work.

Then each time you go between one color or another, you just put it on a temporary holder and that's it! :)

Love the daisy square, this would make a cute afghan for a young girl. She has a great idea to exchange the pattern for a donated square to benefit a charity :)

Looks great, she makes such lovely afghans with them. I have had the honor of my squares being used in one of her afghans. Been a few years ago wow! I need to find that pattern again.

I do like that daisy Hediye! How can I get that pattern?
And thanks to those who have tried to contact Krochet Krystal.... maybe we will have some luck, that's a long time to go without posting or anything, hope she is ok...

Hi Angela,

Here is the link to the pattern. It is free from www.sugarncream.com . You'll have to sign up, free membership, then just search for Flower Power Rug. Let me know if you have any problems.

Thanks Hediye! I did join and download the pattern.... not too sure it will work as the square is a different size I think but maybe I could do some adjusting...

Still on the look out for the Krochet Krystal Charity Daisy pattern....

Thanks
Angela
