Sunflower Wind Spinner Crochet Pattern
"FREE Crochet Sunflower Wind Spinner Pattern Crochet wind spinners have taken the internet by storm lately, and for good reason! They make such gorgeous decor items and make wonderful gifts too! I experimented with some lovely color combinations with this wind spinner, you may check it out for yourself. Then I got into my sunflower craze and thought I’d try crocheting a sunflower wind spinner. I’m loving the outcome! These wind spinners are super easy to whip up, they are great stash busters and don’t take up much time at all. There are a variety of patterns you could use to make these wonderful crochet wind spinners, but what I’ll show you here is a basic sunflower wind spinner you can start out with. Interesting Note: Did you know that the technique used to crochet curly surfaces is called hyperbolic crochet? When I discovered this was actually a mathematical term for “negative curvature”, I was really intrigued! Think of the types of curvature you see in coral reefs or lettuce leaves. These organic shapes can be replicated in crochet by adding stitches at a constant rate to each row of crochet. The more frequently you add stitches, the curlier (and more negatively curved) your crochet project gets. Isn’t that awesome?! Materials - 100% cotton yarn (I used Lang Handarbeitsgarn for these sunflowers. You could also use Schachenmayr Catania) in these colors: (Black, Brown or Green), Orange & Yellow. - Crochet hook that fits your yarn.. For this project I used a 4.5 mm hook. - A tapestry needle - A pair of scissors - Beads or any embellishment you’d like to add to your wind spinner. For this pattern I added the Sunflower Appliqué. Abbreviations ch = chain sc = single crochet dc = double crochet tr - treble crochet st = stitch sts = stitches fo = fasten off Skill Level Beginner Notes - You can use any type of yarn as long as you have a corresponding crochet hook size (check yarn label for recommendations) You can make the pattern larger or smaller by changing the type of yarn and/or hook size. Numbers at the end of each row in brackets indicate the number of final stitches in that row. Please note that I use US crochet terms.
