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

Magic Ring Tutorial
SC - Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
Surface Slip Stitch
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.
My sun is about 2.5" x 2.5" from point to point.
Enjoy the sunshine!
