Free Crochet Flower Patterns - Sunflower Pattern - Moara Crochet

Crochet Sunflower Pattern

To celebrate the end of summer I am sharing my crochet Sunflower pattern. Capture the essence of long summer days with your own forever crochet sunflower. The center of the flower has a raised padded bed with double set of crowning petals which look beautiful in golden yellow to deep rust coloured yarns. For this free crochet flower pattern I have also included the pattern for the leaves.

You can make your crochet sunflower in any yarn size of your choice with the matching sized crochet hook. For the photos I have used thread yarn with 2mm crochet hook to create a small flower which can be used as a brooch, decoration or part of a hair crown. In the photo & video tutorial I have used DK yarn.
