Sure, I’d be happy to provide you with a simple sunflower crochet tutorial for beginners. Keep in mind that this is a text description, so it might be helpful to have some basic crochet knowledge before attempting this project.

Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight yarn in yellow, brown, and green
  • Crochet hook (size H/8 – 5.0mm)
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors


  • ch: chain
  • sc: single crochet
  • hdc: half double crochet
  • dc: double crochet
  • sl st: slip stitch



  1. Start with brown yarn.
  2. Make a magic ring (or ch 4 and join with a sl st to form a ring).
  3. Round 1: Ch 1, work 8 hdc into the ring, join with a sl st to the first hdc. (8 hdc)
  4. Round 2: Ch 1, work 2 hdc in each st around, join with a sl st. (16 hdc)
  5. Fasten off and weave in ends.


  1. Switch to yellow yarn.
  2. Join the yellow yarn to any hdc of the center.
  3. Ch 3 (counts as dc), work 4 dc in the same st, skip the next hdc, sl st in the next hdc, skip the next hdc, work 5 dc in the next hdc – repeat this 7 more times (for a total of 8 petals).
  4. After completing all petals, sl st to the beginning ch-3 to join the round. Fasten off and weave in ends.


  1. Using green yarn, ch 8.
  2. In the second ch from the hook, work sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc (this creates the tip of the leaf).
  3. Now work along the opposite side of the foundation chain: sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc.
  4. Ch 1, turn the leaf to work along the edge: sc in each st across.
  5. Ch 1, turn the leaf again and work another row of sc along the edge.
  6. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for attaching the leaf to the back of the flower.


  1. Attach the leaf to the back of the flower using the long tail and yarn needle.
  2. Weave in any remaining ends.

Your crochet sunflower is now complete! This pattern creates a simple sunflower motif that you can use for various projects such as appliqués, decorations, or even as part of a larger project like a blanket or a bag. Remember to adjust your tension and yarn choice to achieve the desired size for your sunflower. Happy crocheting!
