daisy crochet world record

I do like small projects and this crocheted daisy one is for such a good cause...
It's in memory of Emma Welch, an avid fundraiser. Her friends are organising an attempt to break two world records, all in aid of Brain Tumour Research.
The first Guinness World Record is for the Most People Crocheting Simultaneously," which is currently 485. This will take place in Bath on the 4th June 2016.

If you don't live near Bath and can crochet you can still take part as the second world record to be broken is the Largest Display of Crocheted Items, which is currently held at 13,388.
Emma's middle name was "Daisy", so they are looking for crocheted daisies to break the record. Pattern below. It is a very easy and quick pattern. Daisies are to made in pink and yellow, BTR colours with some white to make them look more daisy like. Again the record attempt will take place 4th June 2016 and afterwards the flowers will be sold off for BTR funds




ch: chain
dc: double crochet
