I’ve been showing teasers of these sunflowers for a few weeks and they are finally ready for you!

Thank you to everyone who helped give me ideas for a title – I ultimately chose to use the one Lucille ‘Hauser’ Schubert suggested because it gives me flexibility in the future if I decide to create more flower eBooks. I don’t have any designed currently, so don’t get too excited 😉

My new eBook, Sunflower Garden, contains three large squares: Sunflower, Sunflower AND Leaves, and Sunflower Leaves. The two squares that have leaves have also been written up with left-pointing versions so you can mix and match more easily. I know that might be a bit confusing… I did make a quick video showing them off:

All the patterns in the eBook have written line-by-line instructions and charts for BOTH interlocking crochet and overlay mosaic crochet (adjusted to have the interlocking mesh dots removed). Sunflower Leaves and Sunflower AND Leaves also have left-handed written instructions for both techniques (so you can decide which way you want the leaves to point).

This set has been updated to include more charts! More details: Sunflower Garden Updated.

The Sunflower square was originally from my 2020 Mother’s Day CAL eBook. The mosaic version had the mesh dots – that pattern will remain available in the Mother’s Day eBook as it is. I have updated the stand alone pattern to have all three versions of this pattern (interlocking, mosaic based on interlocking chart, and adjusted mosaic version).

I have created an instant promotion on Ravelry – if you have the Mother’s Day eBook or the Bonus Mother’s Day eBook you can “buy” the Sunflower square for FREE. This gives you access to the updated mosaic version of the pattern without putting too much confusion in the old eBooks.

Adjusted Mosaic Sunflower

There are three large squares in this bundle. For the interlocking method the chart size is 81 x 81 which means you create 40 windows to start with. The mosaic versions have been adjusted to remove the unnecessary interlocking mesh dots and extra border lines so the charts are 79 x 79.

Join some squares together or use the squares as pillows or join the squares to other squares for a blanket of your own.

“Sunflower AND Leaves” and “Sunflower Leaves” crocheted by Nina Mayer using the interlocking crochet technique.

Also, take note that the yardage for the interlocking squares is the same for each design (two layers of mesh) but the yardage for each mosaic square changes because sometimes more of one color is used than the other color.
