Ever wonder how the Sunflower got its name?
Legend has it that the Sunflower is named after it's affinity for the sun. The flowers like sunshine so much that they actually follow the path of the sun as it arcs across the skies as they grow. Once a sunflower is fully grown, it faces east, eagerly awaiting the sun's arrival each morning.
Now these beautiful flowers that embody the sun can bring a warm glow to any room in your home. With so much beauty to crochet, you surely can't wait to get started on this summery afghan. Just gather together your worsted weight yarns, size I hook, and jump in! This project will be a joy to make, as the sunflowers smile up at you while you work.
