Crocheted Sunflowers

Hello Lovelies!
After being hugely inspired by my trip to the sunflower fields earlier in the week, I thought I'd try my hand at crocheting my very own sunflower.
I raided my craft supplies for sunflower inspired yarn and settled upon using embroidery floss as it comes in some fabulous shades.


From my collection of colours I chose the most sunflower appropriate and settled upon a dark brown, deep green and a rather sunny shade of orange.


Experimenting with the embroidery floss I got to work on creating my very own little sunflowers:


They were a fun project to whip up! 
I think they would look super cute as embellishments to craft projects, clothing and bits and bobs about the home. What do you think?

I got carried away (as usual) and had to make a whole collection of them!

They make me extremely happy!


As mentioned in my last post; I found time this week to jot down the pattern for you all, so you could have a go at making them if you feel like it!?

Now the pattern is pretty simple, I've included lots of pictures to help, so it looks like a bigger and scarier tutorial than it actually is. All I'm saying is don't be put off by the length of the tutorial, it's not as crazy as it may first appear :-)

The pattern can be found in the "TUTORIALS" flip down menu at the top of my blog, its under the name Crocheted Sunflower.

Alternatively you can click on the links here and you'll be taken straight to the pattern page!

I hope you all have a lovely Sunday morning!

  19. It's a lovely pattern and beautifully explained - I made a woolly 4 ply one here - http://www.ravelry.com/projects/CoffeeAndCream/crocheted-sunflower

    As an aside, your pattern doesn't show up in a Ravelry search for Sunflower - I think it's because the pattern page doesn't have a Ravelry link to the pattern at the top of the description like your other patterns do...
