You will need
 •    4 ply / 5 ply Cotton Yarn: 1 ball of each:
 Yellow, Orange, Mustard, Natural, Green
 (You can use any yarn you wish, it will just alter the size of the overall daffodil)
 •    A 2.5mm Crochet Hook
 •    26cm Florist Wire (for stem)
 •    50cm Craft Wire (for leaf)
 •    Pliers to bend the wire
 •    Spray Starch
 •    Tapestry Needle

 Measurements

The daffodil head measures approx 10cm across. 

Gauge

 Gauge is not critical. It will just affect the overall size of the flower.

 2dc – Double Crochet twice in same stitch

 4htr – Half Treble 4 times in the same stitch
 bl – Back Loop

Petals (Make 3)
 (The petals are made as 3 pairs and sewn on top of each other at the end (to make 6 petals in total). By making this way and sewing them together, it creates a stronger centre and a less floppy flower).

 (In row 1 we will be creating one side of a petal, going around the top and down the other side to create the whole petal then doing the same again to create the second petal).

First Petal

Row 1:
 Using Yellow or Natural, ch 16.
 dc in second ch from hook,
 htr in next 2 ch,
 tr in next 3 ch,
 dtr in next 5 ch,
 tr in next
 htr in next 2 ch,
 2dc in last ch.
 (total 16 sts made)
 (We are now going to work down the opposite side of what we have made to create the full petal). 

Row 2:
 htr in next 2 ch,
 tr in next
 dtr in next 5 ch,
 tr in next 3 ch,
 htr in next 2 ch,
 ss in last ch.  
 (total 14 sts made)

 DO NOT FASTEN OFF YOUR YARN.
 You will now continue to make the 2nd petal

Second Petal
Row 1:
 Ch 16
 dc in second ch from hook,
 htr in next 2 ch,
 tr in next
 dtr in next 5 ch,
 tr in next 3 ch
 htr in next 2 ch,
 2dc in last ch.
 (total 16 sts made)

Row 2:
 htr in next 2 ch,
 tr in next 3 ch
 dtr in next 5 ch,
 tr in next
 htr in next 2 ch,
 ss in last ch.
 (total 14 sts made)

 Fasten off, then make another two sets of 2 petals (for 6 petals in total)

 Top Tip
 Stitch markers are your best friend! Place a stitch marker in the final stitch of each round to mark the end of each round. This will help you track when to stop/start each round as your final stitch will have the marker in it.


Trumpet
 (Do not join each round. Just keep going in amigurumi style).
 Using yellow, orange mustard or natural, make a magic loop.

Round 1: ch 1 (does not count as a st throughout)
 dc 6 times into the loop hole.
 (total 6 sts made)

Round 2: 2dc in all 6 sts made in round 1
 (total 12 sts made)

Round 3: dc in bl of each st
 (total 12 sts made)

 Round 4:
dc in each st

Round 5: (2dc in next st, dc in the next 3 sts), repeat this sequence 3 times.
 (total 15 sts made)

Round 6: dc in each st

Round 7: (2dc in next st, then dc in the next 4 sts), repeat this sequence 3 times.
 (total 18 sts made)

Round 8: dc in each st

Round 9 : (5htr in next st, ss in the next), repeat this sequence 9 times.
 Fasten off leaving a long tail. With a tapestry needle gently weave the tail down the side of the trumpet to the bottom. The rest of the tail will be used to sew it to the petals later.

Leaf

 Using Green, ch 61

Row 1: dc in second ch from hook
 dc into next 59 ch
 3 dc in last ch
 (total 62 sts made)

Row 2: Do not turn over, keep going round and work along the opposite side of ch
 dc in next 59,
 3dc in last ch
 (total 62 sts made)

 Keep going round and work the other side

Row 3: dc into next 61,
 3dc in last st, turn again
 (total 64 sts made)

Row 4: dc into next 61,
 3dc in last st,
 (total 64 sts made)

 Work the next row around craft wire. This can be quite fiddly, but you can do it! Once started, it is much easier. Try to hold the wire with the rest of the leaf. Be careful of the wire end and the potential of it poking you in the eye!

Row 5: dc in all the remaining stitches on both sides of the leaf, bending the craft wire around the top of the leaf.

 Before the last few stitches, cut the wire a little longer than required and bend the end over itself before completing the remaining stitches.

 Fasten off leaving a long tail

Stem Cover
 Using green, make a magic loop. Do not fully close loop fully as need to thread it on the stem

Round 1: ch 1 (does not count as a st)
 dc 6 times into the loop hole
 (total 6 sts made)

Round 2: 2dc in all 6 sts made in round 1
 (total 12 sts made)

Round 3: dc in each st, ss to first st to join.

 Fasten off leaving the tails.

Stem
 Firstly, use the pliers to bend over a little of the ends of the florist wire around on itself to prevent sharp ends. To give the back of the daffodil a bit of shape, and create some distance between the stem and daffodil, bend one of the bent ends over again more than 45 degrees. This will then be sewn to the back of the daffoldil and covered with the base.

 Start at a loop end and tie a secure knot to start the process. Wrap the green yarn tightly around the length of the wire to completely cover it. Knot securely at the other loop end and leave a long tail for attaching to petals. It doesn’t matter now messy the end knots look as they will both be covered by the base. Yay! You could apply a little glue over each end to further prevent it unravelling if you wish.

To Finish

Firstly, neatly weave in all ends on all daffodil parts.

 Using a tapestry needle, place 3 of the petal pairs on a flat surface on top of each other and spread out in a 6 petal shape and sew the petals securely together

 Now attach the trumpet. Use the tail from the trumpet and use a tapestry needle to sew through the centre of the petals and back up into the middle of the trumpet. Keep going until you are satisfied it is safely secured.

 Now attach the stem to the back of the petals. Using a tapestry needle and a piece of the same green yarn, tie a knot to the top loop of the stem before sewing. This will make it a lot easier to attach. Keep sewing until it is held firmly in place. It doesn’t matter what the sewing looks like as the base will cover this area.

 Attach the stem cover to the back of the daffodil. Thread the onto the bottom of the stem and slide it to the top of the daffodil to cover the sewn end of the stem. Pull tight on the tail of the base to close the loop around the stem and poke the end under into the base. Sew around the base of cover to attach to the daffodil.

Attach the leaf to the stem. Wrap the length of the leaf around the bottom half of the stem and using the tail, sew up the leaf neatly from the very bottom and up a about 4cm (or however much is desired for the look you want).

 Finally, put it all in position and spray with starch spray following the instructions as per the product you are using and you are done. YAY!!
