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 ’90s 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 kilometres of sunflowers across the Canadian Prairies, it was magnificent and I was struck in awe. It’s so pretty.

    I am an old school crocheter and am wondering if you have a written out pattern for this sunflower throw? I am making one for a wedding gift.

    I saw this afghan while “cruising” through Youtube and then lost it. After several frustrating nights looking, I finally found it on the crochet crowd site.
    I have been crocheting for 50 yrs or more and have never seen this size of sunflower. Thank you, it’s a must to make.
    My 5th-grade teacher started a knitting class after school and entered our slippers in the county fair. I did so well, I taught myself to crochet and do both still. I too am left handed: Miss Workman simply had me sit in front of her and do stitches as I saw them. I teach that way today.

    Thank you for the neat tips and tutorials.
