50 Sunflowers to Knit, Crochet & Felt

by Kristin Nicholas

St. Martins Griffin, New York

Included in this book is all of the useful informations you will need for making various sunflowers—which needles, crochet hooks, embroidery needles and types of yarns to use, plus a special explanation of how to choose yarn for the felting designs. There is a “How to Work with Color” section, photographs of actual sunflowers are translated into stitched samples that give the reader visual cues on how to combine colors in their crafting. The back of the book shares 15 projects for using the sunflowers designs in embellished mittens, wreaths, a felted potholder, a child’s toy, and more!
