When I was finishing up my Green Tee, I thought it would make the perfect canvas for some embroidery embellishment, but I wasn’t sure just what. I love daisies, but I get a little unsure of myself and so I go searching for inspiration so I can get an idea of what to do. In my search, I found some amazing daisy sweaters for both knitters and crocheters that I think you should check out.

I’m going to start with my knitters because I only have 3 patterns for you, so instead of making you scroll through all the crochet options (though I do recommend that!), I’ll give you yours right off the top. How fun is this Wavy Daisy Sweater from AnxiousGirlKnits? I love the bright bold colours used here, but you could make it in any colour combo you like. This pattern is knit with super bulky yarn, so it works up really quickly, for a quick satisfying knit. It’s also size inclusive, with 8 different sizes from a chest size from 28″ to 58″!
The Lazy Daisy Sweater Knitting Pattern from Celina Studioss is another super bulky weight knit sweater which will knit up quickly with a fun, side daisy for a different style. It’s size range is more limited, however: only XS to XL, so beyond that you’d have to grade it yourself, but it’s a pretty fun design that I wanted to include in this round up.
How adorable is this sweet Oopsy Daisy Sweater Knitting Pattern from Blue Bird Pin Shop? It only comes in sizes for children up to a child’s size 10, but if you had a basic knit sweater pattern for an adult, like the Brick Sweater (free Ravelry download!) by Clare Lee, I’m pretty sure you could figure out how to in corporate the pattern into it for an adult sized sweater.
The Chunky Daisy Sweater Crochet Pattern from AXXA Easy Patterns is an oversized chunky cardigan with large puffy daisies appliqued on top. This statement piece is sure to attract a lot of compliments and looks like such a fun handmade item to wear. It includes 6 sizes from XS to XXL and as it is a cropped cardigan with chunky yarn, it will work up quickly! So satisfying!
Ok, while these are not technically daisies in this pattern, the Izzy African Flower Sweater Crochet Pattern from iknityouknot2 is a colourful and innovative crochet sweater pattern that I couldn’t ignore as I searched for daisy sweaters. I love the integration of the African Flower hexagon motifs on one side with the stripes on the other. Such a fun design! While this sweater is not size inclusive, with grading only up to an XL, it’s so fun, I wanted to include it here.
The Daisy Granny Jumper Crochet Pattern from themissingyarn is a super fun granny square motif retro vibe pullover sweater that is so cheery that it will brighten the mood of any room the moment you walk in! It is an easy level pattern, so it could be one of the first crochet garments for a new crocheter! It comes in 6 sizes, with final garment measurements to about 132 cm (52″) across the chest. Given the amount of ease that the model here has (probably about 6-8 inches), that’s just up to an XL size.

Ok, I know, I know, not a daisy sweater, but come ON!!!! This crochet sunflower cardigan pattern from CrochetBao is soooo fun. It’s also beginner friendly and size inclusive, so it checks all my boxes! This pattern features 10 sizes from XXS to 5XL and calls for a 4 weight (worsted) yarn, which should be fairly easy to find in a variety of colours. The other fun thing about this pattern, is you could easily adjust the length of it to accommodate your preferences: cropped or duster (buy extra yarn if you want a longer cardigan!).
This Flower Sweater Crochet Pattern from Yarn by Nathanael was so fun I had to include it, even though I couldn’t find a lot of information about included sizes. It is motif-based, so you should be prepared to follow charts and if you have experience creating crocheted garments, you would probably be able to adjust and figure out how to make this in your size, no matter what size you were. However, if you are a newer crocheter or have no experience with garments, I would say you’d probably have to be straight-sized to make this pattern work for you.
This Daisy Granny Square Cardigan Crochet Pattern from Crafted by Cat UK is similar to the Sunflower Cardigan, but this one has buttons and the flower colours are definitely daisies (but it’s a very similar granny square). This pattern calls for an Aran weight yarn, which is just a little bit thicker than a worsted weight and includes instructions for up to a size 4XL.
So this Boho Crochet Robe Crochet Pattern from Linda Skuja Design doesn’t have the same daisy vibe as the above sweaters, but the lace flower motif definitely has a daisy vibe. This pattern is available in sizes XS to 4XL and has just 2 seams that can be crocheted together, so there is no sewing necessary! If you have never crocheted a lace garment before, you’ll be surprised at how quickly it works up. All that open work really makes for a quick project!
I hope you found some inspiration for a daisy (or other flower) inspired sweater to make! Go grab yourself a pattern and some yarn or pin it for later:
