Sunflowers are one of my favourite flowers. I just love taking inspiration from nature for my crochet patterns. These sunflowers are quick to make and are the perfect project for a beginner. Make your own with my crochet sunflower free pattern below.
As this is a flat crochet piece, they are perfect to put inside a birthday card or thank-you card. Additionally, you don’t even have to stick to classic sunflower colours. These crochet sunflowers look great in monochrome or bold colourways!
