Crocheted Sunflower Granny Square – Free Crochet Pattern

This Sunflower Granny Square Crochet Pattern and tutorial teaches you how to turn your sunflowers into a granny square. You might recognize this sunflower from my Sunflower Book Marker pattern and you’d be right!

I love these little flowers so much I had to make something else out of them. This is smaller than a 6 inch square, but if you make many of these squares it really makes the afghan pop!

You can find more afghan patterns under the category Granny Squares

I used these grannies to make a sweater. Learn how I put them together here.


Making the Center of the Flower

Round 1 (With your brown yarn)

Ch 4 and sl st into the beginning ch to form a ring. CH 2 (counts as your first DC)  dc 15 into the center of the ring. Ch 1 cut yarn (16 sts)


Round 2 (with yellow)

sl st on any of the dc st form the previous round and ch 6, DC in 3rd chain from the hook, HDC into next st, SC into next st, sl st into last st, then sl st into next stitch on the circle to connect to center. Continue around til you have 16 petals total, last petal you will sl st where you began your very first st. Ch 1 cut yar


Round 3 (with Green)

Sl st your color on the tip of any flower petal, in the space that is left between chain and the first DC. And ch 3, then sl st to the next petal and ch 3,

repeat until all petals are gathered and sl st into beginning st, sl st into the first ch 3 sp to the left.


Round 4 (making the flower into a square)

Now in the ch 3 space you want to ch 2 and dc 2, ch 2, dc 2 all in the same space. This will be our first corner space.

Now dc 2 into the next 3 ch 3 spaces, then in the 4th ch 3 space do 2 dc’s, ch 2, 2 dc’s to make your next corner. As shown in the picture below.

Then next 3 ch 3 spaces do 2 dc’s, then repeat the corner DC 2, ch 2, DC 2, then again do 2 dc’s in last 3 ch 3 spaces and sl st to the beginning of the first DC not the ch 2.


Round 5

Sl st into the next st to the left bringing you over the second dc from the corner. (As shown in the picture below)

Now you want to FPDC into the post closest to the corner, and then FPDC into the previous st. (cross stitch) Do the corner as normal Dc 2, ch 2, dc 2. Then skip a st and FPBC into the post, the FPDC into the previous post to do a cross stitch. It should look like the picture below

Now the center sections, always skip a stitch and FPDC into the farther post, the FPDC into the previous one (a cross stitch) do this 4 times then on corner repeat Dc 2, ch 2, dc2, continue the rest of the round the same. Sl st into beginning st and ch 1


Round 6

Dc into each st around. I forgot to count but I think it should be about 74 sts at the end.
