How to crochet sunflower granny squares

Follow these step-by-step instructions to create your own sunflower granny square:

Step 1: Center Circle. Start with a magic ring or create a slip knot and work multiple chains to form a ring. Crochet single crochets (sc) into the ring, building the centre of the sunflower. Join the round and tighten the ring.

Step 2: Sunflower Seeds. Work a series of front post double crochets (FPdc) or bobbles around the centre circle to resemble the seeds of the sunflower. This textured layer adds depth and dimension to the granny square.

Step 3: Sunflower Petals .Using the accent color, work a set of petals around the sunflower seeds. Each petal typically consists of several double crochets (dc) and chain stitches, creating a distinct sunflower appearance.
