Crochet Sunflower - free pattern

Sunflowers. They are unique in that they have the ability to provide energy in the form of nourishment and vibrancy. They symbolize unwavering faith and unconditional love. Considered to be "happy" flowers.

So let's start this week by adding little "happies".
My idea was to make micro sunflowers by using embroidery thread, but they turned out way too small than I wanted them to be, so instead I worked these in embroidery floss.

* embroidery floss (all 6 strands are used) in yellow and brown
* 1.9 mm hook
* tapestry needle, scissors
Stitches (in US terminology): chain (ch), slip stitch (sl st), skip (sk), single crochet (sc), half double crochet (hdc), double crochet (dc), treble (tr).
Foundation: (in brown) Ch3 (counts as working stitch+ 1hdc) hdc5 in 1st st of that chain. Do not sl st. (6)
Round 1: sc2 in all (12). Cut yarn, and work tail.
Round 2: (in yellow) insert color in a(ny) stitch, and ch3, dc1,tr1,ch1,tr1,dc1,ch3 and sl st all in the same stitch. One petal is done. Next, sk1, sl st in next st and repeat the petal pattern. There will be 6 petals in the end. When all 6 are done, sl st into very first petal to end round.
Cut yarn, and work tail. 
They are so easy and fast to make, you'll end up making a whole bunch of them!

Cute necklace! Sunflowers are the perfect motif for summer accessories. It really pops with the dark teal dress.
