A sunflower crochet pattern – the Sunflower Placemat is a free crochet pattern by Nana’s Crafty Home!

Sunflower Crochet Pattern

This sunflower crochet pattern is a beautifully bright and cheerful addition to your sunflower dining decor. And you can pair it with the matching Sunflower Coaster, Sunflower Towel Topper and Sunflower Potholder – all free crochet patterns on the blog! Because I mean you can never have too many sunflowers in your life, right? At least, that is my motto 😉.

And, because I know so many of you are as addicted to sunflowers as I am – I have a couple more sunflower table designs coming up this summer in the Tapestry crochet technique. So, just a heads up to look out for those as well.

And even though these look fantastic in sunflower colors, I do think they would look just lovely in any other flower colors of your choosing – imaging them in white or even bright flower colors. Really, the sky is the limit with color options!

If you are just looking for a stunning centerpiece for your table, this sunflower crochet pattern would also make a great table centerpiece or doily as well.

The basics of the sunflower crochet placemat are the same as the matching designs with just a couple of adjustments. You will be working several more rounds for the center of the sunflower to make it larger and I have also adjusted the petal pattern slightly to make the petals larger as well. The scale just wasn’t right with the smaller petals. However, the technique for adding the petals is the same – you are just working additional chains adding more stitches to your petal.

Supplies used for the Sunflower Crochet Pattern Placemat Doily

For my sunflower crochet placemat I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton. You could certainly substitute any medium #4 weight yarn as well. If you are using the placemats purely for decoration, you could also substitute acrylic yarn as well. Acrylic will not hold up to high heat as it will melt. However, if you aren’t taking plates or pans out of a hot oven and placing directly onto the placemat I do think acrylic would hold up as well. Acrylic is also more colorfast than cotton and washes up well.
