  1. My 19 month old loves it! She keeps looking at it saying, "Flower! Pretty!"

  2. Very cute - would look nice under a small planter. :)

  3. Love your sunflower pattern, it'll come in handy here in the sunflower state! Enjoyed looking at your blog....Happy Sunday!

  4. Thank you all so much for your kind words!

    Lady Rebel - awww, so glad she likes it!

    Debi - you're right! I'm afraid I'm not good with plants no matter how hard I try, so I never would have thought of that.

    Caroline - I'm glad you enjoyed it! Hope you'll visit again soon!

    Y'all have a wonderfully blessed day! ♥ Anita

  6. Glor - I am so glad you like it! Thank you for your sweet words my friend!

  7. My Mom who is 98 and named Anita, loves sunflowers. I crocheted her a couple of these and can't wait to take them to her! It was so easy to crochet and they are so cheerful. Thank you so much for the pattern

  8. Joyce, thank you so much for leaving me this comment. I'm very glad that you enjoyed the pattern. Give your Mom a hug for me from one Anita to another! Warm hugs to you too! Anita

  9. I love the sunflower pattern and am making some as gifts. I have a few questions. Does "co 4" mean cast on four? What does "FO" mean. The petals all curl upward. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help. Mary

  10. Yes, CO means cast on, should have been chain instead, but sometimes I get my knitting terms and my crochet terms mixed. Sorry about that.
    FO means finish off. My petals curled upward too if I held it up, but if I laid it down flat they would stay flat. I didn't mind if they curled really because sunflower petals will curl some too. :o) Blocking it would help though....spray with water until it is pretty damp and then lay out flat on a towel and arrange/shape it so that it looks just like you want it to when it's dry and let it dry that way. Once it is dry the petals should stay flat until it gets washed again. If you are giving them as gifts, you may want to include a little tag that says something like
    "Handmade with love.
    Wash normal
    Dry flat"
    I hope this helps!♥

  11. Thank you so much for your helpful information. It's just what I needed to know. Mary
