Most people who are into crocheting will tell you that the sunflower is among their favorite and easiest flowers to crochet. Sunflowers have a way of bringing out the radiance and elegance in any space you put them in. You can opt for a single color but different colors and hues will do the trick. You can invite the summer into your living room with a very easy crochet pattern. The finished piece will brighten up your living room, or make a lovely housewarming gift for a friend. Before embarking on this sunflower crocheting journey make sure to check out if you have all the materials that are needed.
The sunflower crochet blanket pattern we’re about to go through is designed and owned by Melissa Moore of the Crafty Kitty Crochet. According to her, she first experimented with making a sunflower Afghan sometime back and she was overwhelmed with the good responses she got.
She started changing some aspects of the blanket and adding her own touches and before she knew it she had her own original design. The pattern is impressive and quite easy to follow, the sunflowers have a very large ‘eye’ and the petals have a definitive shape, rounded at the body of the petal and pointed at the tip. The finished blanket is a wonderful piece of beauty and authenticity.
I hope you’re ready to make an entire field of sunflowers without having to leave the comfort of your favorite couch. The supplies you’ll need to make this amazing sunflower crochet blanket pattern are simple to find and include Red Heart Super Saver in:
