These daffodils are quick and simple to knit using oddments of DK yarn. (9 yards for petals, 6 yards for trumpet and 3 yards for stalk)
They are the size of a real daffodil when knit with the suggested yarn and needles.
Use a different shade of yellow for the trumpet to add variety or knit the petals in white to make narcissus.
The stalks are supported with craft wire or pipe cleaners, but please omit the wire if they are to be handled by young children.
Your daffodils will look very sweet in a small vase but you could shorten the stalk and add a pin back to make an eye catching brooch. You could also knit just the heads and attach to serviette holders, spring wreaths or gift tag
