Easy Daisy Granny Square

There has been a huge response to a Crochet-a-long that is using my Easy Daisy Granny Square pattern, so I thought I'd post it here:

MaryEllen’s Easy Daisy Granny Square

Materials: G hook for 6” sq. H hook for 7” sq.
Small amounts of 4 ply worsted weight yarn in yellow for the center,
white for the petals, green for leaves, and your choice for background rows.
Weave in all loose ends as you finish each round.

Row 1: With yellow, ch 4, join with sl st to form a circle; * work sc, ch 4 in
loop* 8 times.
Row 2: Join white, in any ch 4 loop. In each loop around work *sl st, ch3, 2
tr, ch 3, sl st ch 1*. Repeat around.
Row 3: Join green with a sc in ch space between any 2 petals. Work *ch 4,
sc in each ch 1 space between petals* all the way around, finish with sl st into
top of 1st sc. Push white petals to the front of the green loops.
Row 4: Sl st into next green ch 4 loop. Ch 3, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, in same loop.
Work *3 dc in next loop; work 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, in next loop (corner)*; repeat

repeat as for row 5.

rows as needed.

A notice to my loyal supporters

Currently, this site as well as my other religious based sites are under a verbal attack by a certain man who I believe is trying to cause my seminary school as much trouble as one man possibly can.
At no time have I ever presented myself as an academic. My ordination and my doctorate degree are from a religious seminary. They are religious credentials.
As Dr. Martin Luther King was a Doctor of Theology, so am I.
Since this man has what might be considered internet knowledge, I will be slightly altering the names and hometowns of those who post to my BLOGS, contribute to this Ministry and in other ways identify themselves to the world through any of my web sites. This is necessary, in my humble opinion, to protect my wonderful supporters from any attack, verbal or otherwise, from this person’s questionable behavior.
Please pray that God touches this man's heart and that She will stop him from any future harassment.
Thank you,
