Want to grab a free pattern for a small crochet sunflower applique that’s also really easy, and pretty quick to make? If so, check out this one:
Looking at the picture posted here, you can see that I worked this pattern several different times, using different materials each time. I used yellow and brown embroidery floss for he smallest sunflower, medium-weight wool yarn for the medium-sized sunflower, and medium-weight organic cotton yarn for the largest sunflower.
If you truly want to achieve the look of a sunflower, I think the colorway shown in the smallest flower is a great choice. The others aren’t quite ideal, although hopefully they get the point across.
