This Sunflower Afghan Square was designed for the 2015 Mystery Lapghan CAL. I was inspired by a flower clip I made back in July, but I wanted to do a 6 petal version. As you can see, that didn't work out as well as I hoped, but will be revisited. For now, I have a smaller sunflower in this afghan square. I also didn't intend on tacking down the petals, but they were curling so I got creative with the round. It led to the forming of the front post stitches that create a fun texture and visual. This pattern is labeled intermediate due to the use of post stitches, but with the photos included, an advanced beginner could work this project. Photos included for working in the back loop, working a front post stitch, and how to work the special stitch used to tack down petals - 4 photos total. PDF with just the two main photos also available - send me an email after purchase if you desire this one [].

I began with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thank you Aunt Arlys!) about six years ago, making anything I could get my hands on or brain to think up, from masks for school plays to picture frames and small trinkets but recently (less than a year ago), I’ve gotten into jewelry making and working on my crocheting/sewing/etc. I currently craft full time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback! I chose the name Eye Love Knots in honor of the Burckhalter/Lindhorn family (my very close cousins). Our family has been affected by Retinoblastoma, a cancer of one or both eyes which occurs in young children. There are approximately 350 new diagnosed cases per year in the US and affect about one in every 15,000 births. Although children may be born with retinoblastoma, it is rarely diagnosed at birth. As a rapidly growing cancer, studies of the bones, bone marrow and spinal fluid are also performed upon discovery. If the tumor is contained within the eye, more than 95% of patients can be cured. For those children with tumors in both eyes, close to 70-80% of the eyes can be saved, although many of them need radiation therapy, or possibly even chemotherapy. Fifteen percent of every purchase made from me will be donated to aid in the medical advances and new discoveries on the fight against Retinoblastoma, blindness and other eye diseases. Donations go to the National Retinoblastoma Research and Support Foundation headed by Dr. Timothy Murray If you aren’t in need of any of my handmade treasures but would like to make a donation today, please email me so I can set this up for you.
