If you like to crochet, you’re going to love making these crocheted fluffy sunflowers. Although the number of steps may look daunting, once you make your first one, you’ll find any additional flowers much quicker and easier.
You can add these as decoration to a wreath, a piece of all art, use on a pendant or brooch, or add to a purse. What would you use them for?
Crocheted Fluffy Sunflowers
List of Supplies
- Crochet yarn – medium light or medium
- Crochet hook – 3.5mm
- A pair of scissors
- Tapestry needle
Start from the center of the crochet sunflower. We’re using dark brown medium yarn for the center. Work a slip knot at first and then work 8 chain stitches.
Work a slip stitch through the first chain to form a loop or ring with the 8 chain stitches.
Slightly pull out the yarn on hook and then yarn over once.
Insert hook through the ring and pull yarn through the ring but do not pull through the loops on hook.
Yarn over the hook and insert the hook through the ring, and pull yarn through the ring again.
You hook should have 5 loops (including the 1st slip stitch). Pull through all 5 loops neatly.
Now, work a slip stitch.
Repeat step 3, 4, 5 and 6 to form the next puffy stitch through the base ring.
You will need 8 of these puffy stitches around the base ring.
Without removing the yarn from hook, work a slip stitch through the first top chain stitch and pull out a few inches of the yarn. Cut off extra yarn. Secure the remaining yarn on the backside of the crochet pattern.
Take a yellow yarn bundle and make a slip knot. Pull the slip knot through a gap between any 2 puffy stitches and work 3 chains. Yarn over once and stretch the yarn on hook to the height of the 3 chains.
Insert the hook through the gap again and draw yarn through the gap. Stretch and level the height of the yarn on hook with the 3 chains and the other loop.
Repeat the process 4 more times.
Repeat the process 5 times in the next top chain stitch.
Now, carefully insert hook through all 10 loops on hook.
Work a slip stitch and tighten the slip stitch as firmly as possible.
Work 3 chain stitches.
Work another slip stitch through the first slip stitch.
Work 3 chain stitches.
Work another slip stitch through the same stitch used for the last set of loops. The first petal is complete.
Work 3 chain stitches on hook.
Work 5 sets (each set having 2 loops) of loose loops through the next gap between 2 puffy base stitches and another 5 sets of loose loops through the next top chain stitch.
Insert hook through all 10 loops and follow the previous steps to complete the 2nd petal.
Work around the base and complete 8 petals. Finish the petals by working a slip stitch through the first chain stitch. Pull out a few inches of the yarn and cut off the rest from the bundle.
Stitch the remaining end of the yarn on the backside of the crochet sunflower pattern.
