Written instructions as well as a video tutorial for the Lazy Daisy stitch.

Lazy Daisy Stitch

Introduction

Is the Lazy Daisy stitch it’s official name? Probably not. I’ve only ever come across this stitch in the Vogue dictionary of crochet stitches, unfortunately, this stitch guide does not provide names for any of the patterns. The combination of stitches reminded me of a Daisy flower, thus the name was born. What does the stitch combination remind you of?

Can I crochet the Lazy Daisy Stitch?

I am confidently saying yes. This stitch uses a combination of double crochet stitches and V stitches. Which really, are 2 double crochets separated by a Ch space.

With me so far?
