This is a crochet pattern to help you make your own sunflower. This crochet pattern is easy to follow with clear written instructions and photos. This pattern is available for instant download via pdf.


To make this crochet pattern you will need the following materials.


Paintbox Cotton DK 

[50g = 125m] or [1.7oz = 137 yards]

You can find the yarn I used here….. 

  • Mustard Yellow – approx. 75m/80 yards
  • Racing Green– 100m/ 110 yards
  • Coffee Bean/Brown– approx.  20m/22 yards

You can easily substitute with your favourite yarn, for the best results I recommend using a fine to medium weight yarn in Cotton or Acrylic. Another great cotton yarn I like to use to make my amigurumi is the Rainbow cotton yarn from Hobbii, this yarn is available in 8/4 = 4ply, 8/8 = dk and they also do a 8/6 which is somewhere in-between the other two. You can find the yarn here!
