I hope everyone is enjoying these last days of August! I am more than ready for Fall but I thought I would send off August and this beautiful summer we’ve had with a little crochet sun! This is a simple pattern that you can use as an appliqué or turn into a clip. Feel free to embellish as you wish with a button or with the surface slip stitch as I did.
I attached mine to a crocheted rainbow headband. FREE Rainbow Headband pattern is by Snickety Things. You can find the pattern HERE.
– Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice Yarn in Mustard
– Size G Crochet Hook
– Tapestry Needle
Magic Ring, chain 1 in ring, make 12 SC inside ring, join to first SC, chain 1
Round 2: Make 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, repeat around, join to first SC (18 SC)
Round 3: Chain 3, SC in second chain from hook, HDC in next chain, skip one SC and join with a slip stitch to next SC in round. Chain 3 and repeat all the way around to make 9 points.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Make surface slip stitches around the outside of round 1 and round 2 to create raised circles.
Enjoy the sunshine!

I made a mini version of these sunburst and glue them to mini clips for my daughter. Some told me today that she looked just like Punky Brewster! HAHA! I am taking that as a big compliment because I was a always hug fan of Punky 🙂
Here is how to make the mini sunbursts:
Using a G hook and lighter weight yarn (I used Lion Brand Bon Bons)
Magic Ring, chain 1 and make 10 SC in ring, join
Round 2: Chain 2, SC in second chain from hook, attach with a slip stitch to next stitch in round, repeat around to make 10 points. Before fastening off, slip stitch around the center (this part is optional!).
