In Southern California where I grew up, a three-hour drive often involved experiencing the beach, the mountains, the desert–all in one go. And along the way, without fail, wild sunflowers. A mere glimpse out the window at their waving heads would pierce the darkest of moods. They’ve always been one of my favorite flowers.
Being in NYC, I’m thousands of miles away from that scene, but with hotter days on the horizon, I’m indulging a little bit… in nostalgia. This week’s FREE PROJECT DOWNLOAD is the Giant Sungold–a knitted pattern from Kristin Nicholas’ 50 Sunflowers to Knit, Crochet & Felt, which includes 50 original designs of colorful sunflower blooms and buds, as well as leaves, stems, and little sunflower-loving critters to use on accessories, clothing, gifts, housewares…and so much more.
So grab your needles and hooks. The world is your sunflower!
