Sunflower is a favorite flower of many people and I am not surprised by this. It is a simple country flower, but it is so strong and beautiful! It is like a little sun! It can decorate your home or clothes and add energy and colorfull, create a great mood. Therefore, today I propose to dedicate crochet to sunflowers.
This crochet sunflower pattern is totally original and my own. I found several patterns on the Internet, but none were good enough. I wanted to get large elongated leaves and they also had to have sharp corners.
I spent a few hours developing this design and I was pleased. I also hope my sunflowers will like you too. So let’s start crochet sunflowers!
