How to Crochet the Daisy Stitch AKA Crochet Star Stitch

crochet daisy stitch tutorial

The daisy stitch, also known as the star stitch, is one of those terrific crochet stitches that looks like it takes a lot of work but is really fairly simple to master. That makes it a great stitch for projects where you want a lot of texture detail without putting in a lot of hard work!

Step One:

crochet starting chain

Chain a starting chain that is an odd number of stitches. In this example I used a chain of 15 stitches.

Step Two:

Insert hook into second chain from hook, yarn over and draw up a loop.

Step Three:

Repeat step two in each of the next four stitches, leaving each of the loops on the hook as you work.

Step Four:

Step Six:

To start the next daisy, insert hook into the center of the previous daisy. Yarn over and pull through.

Step Seven:

Insert hook into the same loop where the previous daisy finished. Yarn over and draw up a loop. There should now be three loops on the hook.

Step Eight:

Repeat the yarn over and draw up a loop in the next three stitches. This should leave you with six stitches on your hook.

Step Nine:

Repeat steps four and five.

  1. Although, I known how to make this stitch since I was a young teen I just wanted to tell you, I find your tutorial on the daisy stitch very easy to follow compared to some I have run across and plan on using it to teach my granddaughters how to make the daisy stitch, as I am left-handed and they are right-handed I think your tutorial will come in handy.
    Thank you Sherry
