1 Hour Daisy Chain

My youngest daughter had a birthday on Monday! On Sunday night I decided to make a daisy chain to decorate her gift. All the wool came from my bag of scrap wool. I crocheted 16 little motifs and then joined them together with a cord of chain stitch - 10 chains between each flower. I knew she would appreciate this quirky presentation and hope she'll enjoy the garland for a little while to come!Just in case you get the urge to do the same, this is how I made the motifs:
1st round - 6ch, join with ss
2nd round - 1ch, 17dc into ring, join with ss
3rd round - 5 ch, skip 2dc, then 1dc into 3rd dc. *4 ch, 1dc into 3rd dc*. Rep from *to* til end of round. Join with ss and then pull the thread through.
Go on! Get that crochet hook out! You can do it!

Ah, what a great blog! I have just spent the last few hours looking back at your old posts and been totally inspired by what you create. I am going to rush home and start folding a stack of old UK Glamours I was about to reluctantly throw out. Thank you for inspiring me :)

You always come up with such lovely ideas, Denise! I have a load of cerise and blue and purple wool left over from various projects half-started (and not finished) - I think a pink and purple daisy chain will just be the thing - especially if I can finish the project in an hour! Now I must just find a flower child to give it to ...

That looks really cute and you make it sound so easy, I'm a total beginner at crochet so for me it would be a one week daisy chain ;-)
