Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
Size of Finished Sunflower: Approximately 5 inches across
- Small amount of yarn in brown (for center of sunflower) I used “Vanna’s Choice” for this and the yellow.)
- Small amount of yarn in yellow (for petals of sunflower)
- Crochet Hook, Size H/5.00 mm
- Yarn Needle (Used for working in loose yarn ends.)
Center of Sunflower (Using Brown Yarn)
Round 1: Using the “Magic Circle”, Ch 1. Work 12 dc in the circle. Join with slip stitch to top of first dc. (12 dc)
Round 2. Ch 3. Work 1 dc in same stitch as Ch 3. Work 2 dc in each stitch around. (24 dc)
Fasten off yarn and weave in loose ends.
Petals of Sunflower: (Using Yellow Yarn)
Round 1: Attach yarn to the dc just to the right of the last slip stitch of the brown yarn. *Ch 3, skip 1 dc st, sl st into the next stitch*. Repeat 11 more times. (This makes the base for 12 petals.)
Round 2: Sl st in the first Ch 3 space.
In the same space, Ch 2, work 3 dc, Ch 2, Sl st. *Then Sl st in the next Ch 3 space. In the same Ch 3 space, Ch 2, work 3 dc, Ch 2, Sl st* Repeat from * to * all the way around. End with a Sl st at the base of the first petal. This should neatly connect the last petal with the first petal.
Fasten off yarn, leaving a tail of yarn about 20 inches long. This will be used to sew the flower to the hat.
