Free Sunflower Pattern…

Spring has sprung here in New Zealand, and so I have been inspired to make crocheted flower headbands in bright, cheerful colours. Here’s the pattern for my sunflower which I attach to a brooch pin. That way, it can be attached to a headband or worn as a brooch.

Hook: 4 mm (G)

Yarn: DK/8ply. I used Panda Magnum (gold) and Crucci Olympus (dark brown).

FIRST LAYER:

Using yellow yarn…

Magic Circle

R1: Work 8sc in magic circle, join with sl st.

R2: 2sc in each st around, join with sl st (16 sts).

R3: (petals) ch 6, working stitches in the chain just made, sc in next ch from hook, then 1hdc in next ch, 2dc in next ch, 1 hdc in next ch, 1sc in next ch, sl st in the next st of centre. Repeat R3 x 16 times (16 petals).

SECOND LAYER (FLOWER CENTRE)

Using brown yarn…

Magic Circle

R1: Work 8sc in magic circle, join with sl st.R2: 2sc in each st around, join with sl st (16 sts).

R2: 2sc in each st around, join with sl st (16 sts).

R3: 2 sc in each st around, join with sl st (32 sts).

Sew flower centre onto the first layer of flower. Weave in ends etc and you’re done. Enjoy!
