I often get asked What Color Yarn to use for Sunflower Crochet?

YOu will need some Bright Yellow Yarn for the Leaves, Brown shades for the Center. 

I have used several different brands of double-knit yarn to crochet the sunflower petals in several of my designs.

The yellow yarn I used for the Sunflower Granny Square was a lighter shade of yellow.

And the Yellow yarn I used in the Sunflower Coaster Patterns was very vivid.

 My favorite yarn to use for crocheting the sunflower petals has to be a ball of yellow cotton feeling yarn I picked up from a store I was visiting recently. 

King Cole Cherished If you can find it online - See alternatives for your country HERE . (AF*) 

I also made the main part (white) of the Sunflower Crochet Cardigan in this Yarn. ! and it works up a treat for wearables too

FREE Crochet Pattern for the Sunflower Cardigan is available on my website HERE 

I just love the soft look and slight shimmer to the yarn making it perfect for these LARGE Sunflowers.

But the petals also keep their shape extremely well and do not curl in as much as using an acrylic Double knit! Someone in my group has made these with Redheart Yarn and they are stunning too



You can Buy HERE (*af) 

The Brown Center for the Sunflower is an Acrylic general brand Double knit.

Large Sunflower Crochet Pattern Free, Crochet flower bouquet patterns FREE

The Sunflower is crocheted in pieces for the middle and then sewn together to join, with slight stuffing inserted. Adding the yellow leaves of the flower. 

(I have also made Green leaves on the back of the sunflower using the alternative unworked stitches for the yellow petals! this is completely up to you if you wish to make the green leaves. 

If making the sunflower for a full crochet flower bouquet I do not create the green leaves as they can become bulky when all put together.

You will be working through Both top loops of the BROWN and 1 BACK loop of the GREEN side to join them together! (leaving the last loop of stitch unworked, you will work the GREEN LEAVES into this loop later on)

STEM 

In GREEN yarn,

working in rounds and do NOT join,  complete as many rounds as you need for the length you require for the stem. 

If you feel it needs to add tiny bits of stuffing a few rounds at a time to help straighten the stem. 
FASTEN OFF and leave a length to sew to the flower later to side until the next step is complete.

You are now going to use a piece of wire, curl one END into a spiral inserting this into the Head of the Sunflower to stabilize the flower head to lay flat. 

Sunflower Crochet Pattern Free - crochet flower bouquet patterns FREE


insert the wire by twisting around the wire spiral and thread through the stem. 

Sew the STEM to the Back of the middle GREEN side of the Flower to finish. 

If you find the Head of the Sunflower q bit floppy. I will use a Wooden skewer inserted all the way up the STEM to the Top of the Sunflower.
