Crochet Vintage Sunflower Throw

This versatile pattern is called the City Solarium Throw. Originally, when I looked at the pattern I thought it was cute but I really noticed how big the flowers were on the square. I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be cute if it was a Sunflower instead? So I changed the colour to suit.

Free Pattern: Sunflower Throw. It’s also known as the Solarium Throw.

Remember in the early 90’s where many of us, including myself, bought forest green furniture and accented it with sunflowers? I remember that very clearly. I still think it’s a nice combination, even today.

To some, the Sunflower look is vintage but there’s something cozy, homey and soothing about it. Being a former truck driver and being able to pass through 100’s of kilometers of sunflowers across the Canadian Prairies, it was magnificent and I was struck in awe. It’s so pretty.
