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.
- Worsted weight yarn in yellow, brown, and green
- Crochet hook (size H/8 – 5.0mm)
- Yarn needle
- ch: chain
- sc: single crochet
- hdc: half double crochet
- dc: double crochet
- sl st: slip stitch
- Start with brown yarn.
- Make a magic ring (or ch 4 and join with a sl st to form a ring).
- Round 1: Ch 1, work 8 hdc into the ring, join with a sl st to the first hdc. (8 hdc)
- Round 2: Ch 1, work 2 hdc in each st around, join with a sl st. (16 hdc)
- Fasten off and weave in ends.
- Switch to yellow yarn.
- Join the yellow yarn to any hdc of the center.
- 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).
- After completing all petals, sl st to the beginning ch-3 to join the round. Fasten off and weave in ends.
- Using green yarn, ch 8.
- In the second ch from the hook, work sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc (this creates the tip of the leaf).
- Now work along the opposite side of the foundation chain: sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc.
- Ch 1, turn the leaf to work along the edge: sc in each st across.
- Ch 1, turn the leaf again and work another row of sc along the edge.
- Fasten off, leaving a long tail for attaching the leaf to the back of the flower.
- Attach the leaf to the back of the flower using the long tail and yarn needle.
- Weave in any remaining ends.
