Looking forward to summer? Crochet a cute Sunflower Applique and bring the sun into your home!
These sunflowers work up real quick and are easy peasy to crochet. They’re fairly small, just about 2.2″ (5.5 cm), so they are perfect when you don’t want a huge embellishment!
You can use them to make flower garlands for your home decor or to embellish summer accessories and garments, or you can use them to make some magnets, cards, and so much more! Maybe some earrings?!
AD-FREE DOWNLOADABLE PATTERN
- A small amount of Yarn of Choice
- Appropriate Hook Size
- Tapestry Needle
For my sunflowers, I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK and a 3.5-mm (E/4 USA, 9 UK) hook.
- CA – Coffee Bean (411)
- CB – Mustard Yellow (424)
When working with DK Weight Yarn and a 3.5-mm (E/4 USA, 9 UK) hook, you can expect sunflowers of approximately 2.2″ (5.5 cm).
This pattern is too small to accurately determine the gauge.
