Sunflower Amigurumi

I am so excited to share with you a brand new amigurumi pattern.

A Crochet Pattern by: Christina Ryan

Design Inspiration

I wanted to do something different this time than my usual designs. I decided to do a sunflower. Then my friend, Erin @Juniperandoakes, is hosting this Plants With Yarn Blog Hop. I knew it would be perfect for this blog hop.

This adorable crochet pattern is available for a free crochet pattern right here on my blog. You can purchase the Ad-free PDF version in my Etsy and Ravelry Shops below. This pattern is available for a FREE PDF download for 24 hours from June 27, 2022 from 8 am EST as part of the Plants With Yarn Blog Hop. More information about that later.
