I absolutely adore sunflowers and plant some in my garden every year, I thought it would be fun to make a little sunflower coaster to brighten up my patio table during the summer months. They take no time at all to make and are perfect for using up small amounts of yarn from your stash. They look fab in all shades and you could try bright pinks and mustard or for a beach themed set of coasters blues and soft pink and brown shades. Enjoy getting creative, with different colours, happy crocheting best wishes Fiona xx
