Noth­ing sig­nals sum­mer quite like a field of dainty daisies, so freshen up a plain tee for the new sea­son with a scat­ter­ing of these sim­ple blooms. Scheep­jes Maxi Bon­bon yarn is very fine, so make sure you have a good light source and take reg­u­lar cro­chet breaks. Hap­pily, these pretty flow­ers are fab for on-the- go hook­ing.

DAISY

Make ap­prox 60 to cover a size 10 short-sleeved T-shirt on the front, back and sleeves. Us­ing Yarn A, make a magic loop.

Round 1 Ch1 (does not count as st), 5dc into loop, ss to first dc to join. [5 sts]

Round 2 Ch1 (does not count as st), 2dc into each dc around. Fas­ten off. [10 sts]

Round 3 Join Yarn B in any st, *ch4, (dtr, pi­cot, ch4, ss) into st at base of ch- 4, ss into next st; re­peat from * 9 more times.

Fas­ten off. [10 petals] Do not block the daisies. Spray with a lit­tle starch and press with a medium hot iron.

TO MAKE UP

Lay the daisies on the T-shirt and pin in po­si­tion. Sew to the T-shirt us­ing match­ing thread to se­cure the cen­tre and then an over­stitch into the top of each pe­tal.

Leav­ing the daisies un­blocked gives plenty of move­ment and a more or­ganic look.
