A crocheted granny square that looks like a sunflower with a brown center, light yellow 2nd row, gold 3rd row and cream colored 4th row

I’ve always loved sunflowers. I also love granny squares because you can do so much with them! This pattern uses sunflower colors in a classic Sunburst granny square to make a beautiful flower. You can use individual squares as coasters, combine 9 squares into a larger square for a pillow cover, or make a whole bunch of squares into a blanket. The possibilities are endless.

I used invisible joins and chainless starting double crochets to make it so you can’t tell where each round starts and ends. I will be working on a step-by-step video to help with the more complicated steps, but for now, here is the written pattern.
