~ SUNFLOWER HEAD CROCHET PATTERN ~
I designed this Sunflower because I thought Mark wanted it. Turns out he only wanted me to make it because he thought his idea was better than my “Artsy Fartsy” Sunflower Four Seasons Wall hanging. Men!
Materials DMC Petra No5 - one of each in 53854, 5434, 5938, 5700 and 3 in 5742, Florists wire, ½m wadding, 30cm square of felt, 25cm embroidery ring.
The florists wire is used on the petals and leaves to keep their shape and stop them drooping when hung. I have used two lengths of 28g x 12”. You can use a thicker and/or longer lengths if you prefer. The embroidery ring is used to keep the flower centre in shape. Choose brown felt to blend in or a brighter colour to contrast. This is only to stop the white wadding to show through the stitches.
Equipment 2.5mm hook, tapestry needle,
Tension 22 dc x 26 rows to 10 cm square.
Finished Size The Sunflower measures about 51cm (20 inches) across.
