The sunflower is one of my favorite flowers. I admire how big it grows, the seeds it produces and the big bright yellow petals. I enjoy crocheting sunflowers, so I want to share this big, beautiful crochet sunflower brooch pattern. You can use the sunflower on your hat, purse, scarf or just to display.
