Daisy Petals Girl Scout Hat

My youngest daughter is a Daisy girl scout and has been very busy these past few weeks selling girl scout cookies. The weather has not been the greatest outside for door to door sales, and with booth sales approaching, I thought I would make her a little daisy girl scout hat to keep her head warm.

A Girl Scout Daisy earns her petals by participating and completing activities that represent each petal.

An activity for let's say the yellow petal, which represents friendly and helpful, can be as easy as bringing in a snack at a meeting and passing it out to each of her "daisy sisters" while also saying something nice to each of the girls.
By doing this kind gesture, she will get rewarded the yellow petal to add to her girl scout tunic.

Zella really enjoys being a Daisy Girl Scout and has made a lot of friends within her troop. She is learning so many valuable life lessons while having lots of fun!

Hello Kelly!

The daisy pattern is actually very simple....

Daisy Flower Pattern

It's 10 hdc in the center, for each petal chain 9, hdc in to 3rd ch from the hook, hdc into nxt 2, dc into nxt 2, hdc into rest and slip stitch back into starting place of the petal. After all the petals are finished, w/ white I single stitched around everything. Then take white and ch 12, sew the chain around the outer edge of the center blue. Weave in ends and you are finished. ;)

Sincerely,
Lindsay
