In autumn while walking with my dog in the fields in the mornings I saw many sunflowers, still beautiful in spite of coming rains and cold. I was inspired by them and decided to design a square motif which could look like a small sunflower.
My Sunflower Pillowcase consists of 9 square motifs crocheted in Overlay Crochet technique.
This easy to follow pattern of a square motif is written for one size. It contains step by step full written instructions in English using standard crochet abbreviations and US terms (stitch guide is given in the pattern). It also contains lots of pictures explaining all the tricky and difficult places and how the motifs are joined.
Crochet level: Intermediate (front post stitches are used in this pattern), though an “adventurous” beginner can handle it!
Materials: DK yarn of 5 colours. (40 - 50 yards (37 - 46 m) in total for one motif.
