As promised, (or should that be threatened!) here are the pictures of my brass daisy maker. 
I have included a picture with a cheap and nasty modern plastic one for comparison! :o

PS. there are three new Dartington ring holders on eBay at the moment if anybody wants to buy and then sell on as an "Ultra Rare Penny Lick!!"
Night night! :angel:

I had/have one of those brass one somewhere but never knew what it was for Rosie. Thanks for solving a long-standing puzzle for me. :)

Ah well there you are Anne, isn't it just as well you were feeling mellow and generous!!? :angel:

Now, do you know how to use it?! ;)

Mine was given to me by a lovely lady I was nursing in the 60's.  She was making a little blue and white Christening jacket with it. It was like little white lacy cobwebs with pale blue edging. I had just learned to crochet, and was entranced by the delicacy of the jacket. She was dying, and gave me the daisy maker on the understanding that I finished the jacket for her.

These topic threads take us to wonderful places don't they? :)

Has anybody correctly identified the wonderful 'Loetz' Tazza/comport yet? I am aching to email the seller with the proverbial "Get it off!" (a Scrabble term!) >:D...........ooooooooh! and there's another 'spanner in the works' for the Dartington - Thrower thread......must get over there and leave that one this morning! :chky:

Oh Christine, I'm sorry, I didn't see that link.....I was laughing so much!!  I thought mine was Krosno piece, just didn't realise it was J√≥zefina.

Where is KevH??? I expected some input for the brass Daisy Maker!?

I LOVE this thread................... >:D

I'm here! But I wasn't here for most of the last couple of days.

Hmmm ... the daisy maker has me just as baffled as the recent discussion on the patent for an odd-looking glass former!

Maybe it's all very straightforward and time saving. But since crochet is essentially the addiing of successive individual loops of thread to ones already formed, why use a former of any kind?

As a general concept: A daisy (or rose, or other floral pattern) can be made with a simple circle as the start point with triple-crochet lengths added all the way around the circle. Add a further row (or rows) of triple-crochet lengths to extend the size of the base as required. [Using triple-crochet lengths rather than longer ones will make the finished item more "stable".] Follow this with open loops of a desired size to form the outlines of petals around the edge of the base. The petals can be just open loops or can be more complex with partially filled areas. Tie off. Now work a series of triple-crochets (or double-crochets, if more convenient) into the initial circle such that this forms a new layer over the first. Then work extensions and petal-loops as before but make them such that the diameter of the new layer is smaller than that of the previous one. Repeat for as many layers as is suitable for the type of flower. Use different coloured thread for the centre, extensions and petals to make it look really cool.
