Crochet Sassy Sunflower Afghan Pattern
Crochet Sassy Sunflower Afghan Pattern

Who doesn't love the bright and comforting appearance of a sunflower? That's why you are going to love this Crochet Sassy Sunflower Afghan Pattern.

Each colorful sunflower granny square on its own is a beautiful crochet piece but when you put them together to create a full crochet throw, it's magical.

This sunflower throw pattern has classic colors of brown, vibrant yellow, white, and green. It's an incredibly pleasing look that you or anyone you know would appreciate having this in their home.

This full pattern from Red Heart starts with constructing the squares, in which you'll make 24 in total. After they are complete, you will create three main strips. Then you'll weave them together with a yarn needle to finish.

It's a delightful and easy crochet afghan pattern that any crocheter can complete. Once finished, use it to adorn your living room couch or chair, or add it to your bed as an extra blanket for when it's chillier at night.

No matter how you use this (or if you make it as a thoughtful gift), you will love the results.

Made this for a friend, then ended up making 8 of them . Beautiful blanket.

Impressive. The designer really made this so that it is so much like the real thing. Did you notice the real sunflowers in the background? I think this is a work of art and any recipient would love to have it, especially one that is fond of sunflowers.

Sunflowers are so cheerful and give you such a warm feeling inside. Now imagine if you could wrap yourself up in dozens of sunflowers while you are sitting in your recliner or lounging on your sofa?! I love the design of this afghan. It makes use of motifs and the yarn is the inexpensive worsted weight yarn. But I would chose Impeccable yarn from Michaels. It worked great for the ripple afghan I made- it is really soft and fairly lofty and not scratchy at all!

The sassy sunflower afghan is a beautiful work of art. The coloring is awesome and the flowers look exactly like a real sunflower. This piece is a little more labor intensive than most because of all the individual squares that have to be made and then sewed together at the end.

Just to look at this colorful Crochet Sassy Sunflower Afghan makes me feel all warm inside. With spring upon us, this afghan would be beautiful draped over the porch swing and use on those nights when there is a chill in the air. And one of my favorite project categories - motifs.

This is the prettiest afghan I have ever seen! I made this for my daughter, it turned out awesome! Looks like I'm going to have to make me one too! Thanks for putting it on AllFreeCrochet.

I am having a problem with doing the sunflower petals. I am at Rnd 5. I did the Beg cl. Chained 5 and completed the cluster on the circle edge pulling it at the end. This makes a very nice petal but leaves the yarn at the top of the cluster. I am suppose to repeat this process around the circle. How do I do another chain of the gold color for each petal? I have searched everywhere on the net and can't find out how to do this. This is the prettiest sunflower afghan and really want to do it for someone special. Please help me.

GOT IT..UNDERSTAND SQUARE NOW..THANK YOU GONNA DO A PATTERN SQUARE NOW...

QUESTION ON THE PATTERN. YOU HAVE THE BEGIN CLUSTER THEN THE ROUNDS THE ROUNDS COME AFTER CLUSTER NO? PLEASE SO MY POOR BRAIN DOESN'T JUMP SHIP WILL SOMEONE EXPLAIN..PLEASE...

I am working on this pattern and am stuck on Round 5 the cluster stitch. Rnd 5: Beg cl; * ch 5, cl over next 4 sts; rep from * around, ending ch 5. I cannot figure out how to do this. Help would be appreciated

Has anyone made this? I have started but have a question about the directions Rnd 6: Sl st to first ch-5 sp, ch 1; (6 sc in each ch-5 sp) around; sl st to beg sc72 sts does this mean to Sl st to first ch-5 sp, ch 1 into each cluster or just the first one? thanks mj

You would only sl st to the first space, then ch 1 and do 6 sc in that same space, after that you would simply do 6 sc in each ch-5 sp.
