Crochet sunflower granny square

Crochet sunflower granny square

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.

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 🙂

      Hi, Kristen
      This is just a small square and I used very little yarn. However, the amount of yarn would be depends on your crochet project, as a blanket requires many skeins 🙂

    The sunflower is perfect for use in my daughter’s kitchen! I’m so lucky to have found it. Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you for sharing such a lovely pattern!

    I am however having much difficulty with the first round of the flower bed as pp did – I cannot work it out at all

    Beautiful sunflower! However I’m having trouble with the square bed. I’m counting 4 sets of 5 groups of stitches going into a total of 20 back loops. But there are 24 back loops to stitch into. I surely missing something… But I’ve worked the square (and ripped it) out 3 times. Please help! Here’s how I’m reading it:
    Back loop 1.. 1 tc 2 dc
    Back loop 2,3.. 3 dc
    Back loop 4.. 2 dc
    Back loop 5.. 2 dc 1 tc
    Repeats here instead of a stitch for the sixth back loop.
    What am I missing? Should I be skipping a back loop somewhere in this sequence?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

      Hi,
      There are total 24 sts when you work into back loops for the square bed. As a normal granny square, you’ll skip 1 stitch and crochet (usually 3d crochet shell stitch) into the next st after every ch 3 (corner). After first round of the square bed ( the triple crochet stitches are made intentionally ), just work as you crochet a simple granny square.
