I absolutely love this washcloth! And, so does everybody else. I had wrote the pattern down when I made it and was planning on posting the pattern here on my blog and figured I could do it at a later time, but I posted a picture of it in a crochet group on Facebook to see what everybody thought of it and y’all loved it.
Everybody was going crazy over this little sunflower! Everyone was wanting the pattern, so I figured I would get it available for y’all as soon as possible!
I have even put together a video tutorial if y’all would like to watch that. I showed y’all how I sewed the petals on and stitched them together about half way up them to keep them from being floppy.

It’s a quick and easy project.
I can just see a couple of them laid on your counter tops to sit hot pans and cookie sheets on after pulling them out of the oven. Who doesn’t need some pretty potholders that you can leave sitting out on the counter for decoration and when you need them you won’t have to dig in the drawer hunting them.
And, a lot of y’all said that they were to pretty to use. I agree. Sometimes I have a hard time using something I made because I think, “I can just use the ones I bought at the store and not dirty or mess up mine.”
SUMMER!!! That is what this picture makes me think of. I love how the yellow looks with the blue water background.
But, you can also make other kinds of flowers too!
For this flower, I used I Love This Cotton in Pink/Teal/Orange Print.

Attaching the Petals:
Starting anywhere around the middle start stitching the first petal to the middle
Once you have stitched the first petal completely on, make a knot and do not cut yarn
Take petal #2 and 3 stitches from the edge of petal #1 start to sew it on overlapping the 1st petal
Sew petal #2 completely on and make a knot and do not cut yarn.
Attach tail from petal #1 on yarn needle and loosely go back up about 5 or 6 stitches on the side of petal #2
Sew a stitch from petal 2 to petal 1
Go back through the stitches and make a knot and weave in that end.
Continue these steps around and attach all 8 petals
