For many years I avoided using ornamental stitches, like the Daisy Stitch, in my knitting because they looked too complicated. Then, I reminded myself that knitting is just two sticks and a piece of string. It's nothing to stress out about. So make a big bouquet of daisies in your next project.
When making the Daisy Stitch, it can be very helpful to have a small crochet hook handy to help you pull up the daisy petals while stitching.
