According to Greek mythology, the daffodil (or Narcissus) is in fact a young hunter who was so enchanted by his own reflection in a lake that he eventually faded away, leaving the iconic yellow-headed flower bobbing in the wind. As a spring flower, daffodils are often the first to bloom in the Northern Hemisphere, signifying new life and resilience as survivors of the winter conditions. Their cheerful colours are a symbol of positivity and joy, and are often associated with Easter, St David's Day and Chinese New Year due to the flowers blooming around these events. Whatever occasion you choose to crochet your daffodil for, it's sure to bloom faithfully year after year.
