Another free flower pattern-Daffodil

For a little while I was worried I would have to do each big petal on these one at a time and the thought of weaving in all those ends stopped me from getting on with it. However, I have come up with a clever cheat and so you only have 4 little ends to deal with in this easy  (I hope), pretty little Daffodil.

You could knock up a few and make the beginning of spring last forever.

The pattern is written in standard US crochet terms.

You will need

Very small amounts of Scheepjeswol Cotton 8 in Canary and Yellow

3mm crochet hook

Needle for weaving in ends

Abbreviations 

sc- single crochet

slst- slip stitch

ch- chain

st(s)- stitch (es)

hdc- haft double crochet

sk- skip

dc- double crochet

htr- half treble crochet

sp- space

rnd- round
