I found this wonderful pattern for a daisy square over on Crochetville by Krystal16. I'm using it as a stashbuster, and I wondered if anyone would like to join me.



The pattern is available by sending me a PM or by emailing Krystal.  I won't post her email here.

She asks that if you use the pattern that you send her a square (either a black background with bright colors or white with pastels) to contribute to a charity afghan. It was a lot of fun to see my square become part of an afghan headed out to a needy child!
Also, she has a blog where she's posted all the squares she's gotten:

This is a very fun pattern, and I'm really enjoying putting them together. I hope someone will join me!

*edited to add - Oops, I forgot to add that if you PM me, please include an email where I can forward the pdf file of the pattern. 

Actually, for the next few weeks - please just contact Krystal for the pattern. I'm going to be away from my computer for a while!

Those daisies are so cute!  Her afghan looks cute.  What yarn are you using?

I'm trying to use up my pile of Simply Soft. I did buy a couple of extra colors, but I figure it doesn't count if I use it all up in the end, right?   Grin
The colors in the pic are actually pretty far off. In person, they're all brighter.

The best part about the pattern is that the ends of the daisy petals are actually separate from the background and fold up a little.

Oh yeah I made her one but I haven't got around to making myself any yet. The afghan's she's making are turning out great.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Thanks for the reminder...I owe her a square or 2 for supplying the pattern.  I will make and send her those, but I don't think that counts for the CAL here!!  Wink

mimi_mia - I certainly encourage everyone to send Krystal a square, but yeah, I'm hoping people will join me in making the whole afghan themselves too! Or even pillows - I have a couple of my early attempts that I'm thinking of making into a small pillow rather than trying to fit them into the blanket.

Can someone pretty please post a pic of the back of their square?  Mine looks kind of odd because the chains are visible on the back.  Should I have crocheted over them to hide them?  I was worried the colour would peek through the stitches if I did that.

I don't have a personal pic handy of the back of my squares, but the chains do show. No, you don't need to crochet over them. If you did that, you'd lose the density on the front and the underneath colors would show through like you thought (I did that on my first try). The back is going to look a little weird, but I don't think the chains would cause a problem with the finished product.

There's a good picture of the back in the crochetville thread I listed in my first post, on page 42 of the thread.
There are pics on other pages of the thread, but I can't find them right now...
