Free Easy Sunflower Crochet Granny Square

Once you have mastered one sunflower square there is no stopping you. I wanted the middle of the sunflower to represent the little seeds and decided on a PUFF Stitch worked in Brown, and for the middle and a CLUSTER stitch, for the petals in yellow, I will show some photos to help you create your Very first Crochet Granny square with a sunflower middle. 

Try not to be intimidated. Crochet really is just multiples of in whatever particular order the pattern calls for. YARN OVER, Inert hooks, pull through. Read the instructions for the puff stitch and it becomes a 'mantra' This is where crocheting really helps us zone out and can help us relax as the repetition of the stitches becomes very soothing. 

In your chosen Hook Size (I used a 4.500 mm hook for the Pictures shown 

 (NOTE: bigger hook will need thicker yarn, smaller hook thinner yarn. )

The Middle of the Crochet Sunflower (BROWN)  is made up of Puff stitches.  

How to Croche the Puff Stitch

First, pull up the yarn on the hook to a height of double crochet.

Yarn Over, insert hook in the same stitch, and pull up a loop. (3 loops on the hook) 

Yarn Over, insert hook in the same stitch, and pull up a loop. (5 Loops on the hook).
