This crochet sunflower granny square reminds me of Spring and Summer breeze. Compare to the wild daisy granny square, this pattern is a bit harder since you have to crochet more petals with slip stitches. However, who doesn’t love to add a little sunshine on a fresh project.
Materials: (I used)
5mm crochet hook
Worsted weight yarn: yellow, brown, green and dark green
Note: This pattern is crocheted continually from flower to the square bed. Use any hook size you want for a bigger or smaller square, just choose a yarn type that matches. Steam block your finished squares.
Flower: (Pic no.1 and 2)
Start with brown yarn to make flower’s pistil part.
R1: Form a magic ring, ch 3 ( as 1st dc ), 11 dc into the ring, total 12 dc, sl into 1st to join.
R2: Ch 3 ( as 1st dc ), 1dc into same st, inc dc into every st around, total 24 sts, sl into 1st to join.
R3: Change to yellow yarn, crochet all sts into front – loop only * ch 5, sl into 2nd ch from hook, sc into next ch, 2 hdc across, sl into next st* across. * repeat ** 24 times. You’ll have total 24 petals ( fasten off )
Square bed: (Pic no. 3,4,5,6)
R1: Work into back – loop behind the flower. Use green yarn, join yarn into any back – loop st, ch 4 ( as 1st tr ), 2 dc into same st, ch 1, skip 1 st, 3 dc into next st, ch 1, skip 1 st, 2 dc into next st, tr into same st, ch 3, skip 1 st *Ch 4 ( as 1 tr ) into next st, 2 dc into same st, ch 1, skip 1 st, 3 dc into next st, ch 1, skip 1 st, 2 dc into next st, tr into same st, ch 3, skip 1 st* repeat ** 3 times.

This 3d flower granny square is way bigger than the wild daisy granny square. So … I created another daisy granny square with the same size. It’s a big daisy not a little wild daisy on a green square bed. Simply crochet ch 6 instead of ch 4 for each petals.
With white yarn, crochet all into front – loop only * ch 6, sc into 2nd ch from hook, hdc across, sl into next st. * repeat ** 12 times.
The square bed is exactly the same as Wild daisy granny square plus 1 more round of granny square crochet.
See, same size they are. 3D Daisy and sunflower granny squares 🙂
Happy crocheting xD
