How to Crochet a Sunflower Granny Square (FREE PATTERN)

How to crochet the Sunflower Granny Square required to make a crochet bag, crochet hat, or a crochet sunflower square blanket. 

Free Easy Sunflower Crochet Granny Square

 I have seen some amazing Crochet Sunflower Cardigans, sunflower crochet bags, and sunflower hats

 All are made up of several crochet sunflower granny squares sewn together.

 I hope to bring a few patterns to you using this gorgeous square. 

Once you have made one crochet sunflower square there is no stopping you. 

What will you make?  I have made a Granny Square Sunflower Bucket hat and a Granny Square Sunflower Bag to match and they are so cute. 

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 show you how to crochet your very first Sunflower Granny square. 

Do not 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 Crochet the Puff Stitch used in this Sunflower Granny Square 

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).

Yarn Over, insert hook in the same stitch and pull up a loop. (7 loops on the hook).
