I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Let’s express our support for Ukraine

While the terrible situation continues in Ukraine, we can express our support against aggression with thematic crochet. Thus, here are some ideas for a sunflower for Ukraine. Overall, this is a theme that will be very good for expressing your support. Since their national colors are yellow and blue, sunflowers are a particularly great flower that can be combined with a blue background or band to generate a design evocative of this flag. Better still, in addition to taking a political stance, this is simply a super attractive and fun theme to work on.

Sunflower Cuff

So, our first pattern for a sunflower fo Ukraine is a cuff with a sunflower overtop a blue band. Indeed, this is a particularly visible and decorative expression of support.
