Crochet: Straw Daisy Brooch {Tutorial & Pattern}

Picture 1 of 4 (Click arrow for more pictures)

This is the 3rd raffia yarn crochet project I did in a row, I really get crazy of it. But, after this, I am going back to my other crafts, like sewing, knitting etc… they were yelling at me for leaving them alone for too long. Guess that I have to take turns for each craft and to be fair to all of them…lol!!!

You probably saw this straw daisy brooch peeping in the pictures of my 2 previous posts, this and this. You are right, I used the same crochet technique for the disc florets of the daisy, i.e the first layer is a simple back loop only single crochet, and after we finished the 1st layer, work backward and crochet the front loops with slip stitches.

And if you have been browsing through my other crochet tutorials and patterns, you probably won’t missed out the popular loop stitch shaggy bag I have made. The petals of this daisy are done by loop stitches crochet, the same technique used in the shaggy bag. The slight different is the loops are cut and the raffia yarns are stretched out wide in the daisy petals. If you are new and haven’t got a clue on how to crochet a loop stitch, don’t worry, watch this video.

Get the crochet written pattern after the jump… there are also some pictures showing the processes after that.

  5. I love all of your patterns, I live near Toronto Ontario Canada and am having real difficulty finding the raffia yarn. Do you have any suggestions?

    • Sorry, Gillian, I can’t make any suggestion for the local shop. Perhaps if you read through the comments here you may find some clue for the online shop, but I am not sure if they are the same as what I have been using.
