  1. Hi, I love this pattern, and I am trying to make a gerber daisy large enough to hang on the outside of the house. Can you help me make the pattern larger. I would appreciate your help. Thank you

    • Hi Rhonda,
      It should be fairly easy to make this flower larger.
      For the center, you can work several rounds of double crochet increasing every stitch in the second round, every other stitch in the third round, every two stitches for the fourth round, and so on.
      For the petals, you can chain more chains to start with and you can use single crochet stitches, hdc, or even dc depending on how big is your flower.
      Have fun making your huge gerbera 🙂
