FREE Crochet Sunflower Pattern

Free crochet sunflower pattern.

I have had several messages this evening from customers asking me if they can use my crochet pattern to make sunflower brooches to raise money for the Ukrainian refugees. So I decided to release a free crochet sunflower pattern in case anyone else would like to do the same.

In case you’re wondering why the sunflower has come to represent Ukraine, here’s an article with some more information: https://www.scmp.com/news/world/russia-central-asia/article/3168742/how-sunflowers-became-symbol-ukraines-resistance

Here’s the printable PDF:

Let’s Get Started:

In brown make a magic ring

Round 1        in the ring make (ch3, 1tr) ch1, *2trcl, ch1*, repeat from * to ** 4 more times, sl st to top of first treble (skipping over ch3), do not fasten off (6 clusters, 6x ch1 spaces)

Round 2        in same place as sl st make (ch3, 1tr), ch1, make 2trcl in ch1 space, ch1, *make 2trcl in top of next cluster from round 1, ch1, make 2trcl in ch1 space,ch1** repeat from * to ** all the way around, sl st to top of first treble (skipping over top of ch3), fasten off (12 clusters, 12 ch1 spaces)

Your work may curl in slightly at this point, please don’t worry, it will even out next round
