Pretty Little Sunflower

After a LOOOOOOOONG break I have finally started designing patterns again.Yay!
This pattern was particularly designed for a crochet swap group I am part of. Our swap was Kitchen themed and my swap partner for the month has hers decorated in Sunflowers. I couldn't find a Sunflower applique that I enjoyed so I decided to design one. I enjoyed it so much that I thought I would share with y'all !

Stitches used
Sc= single crochet
Dc= double crochet
picot= ch3,sc in2nd ch from hook

Worsted weight yarn in dark brown and mustard/gold
H hook

with Brown

R1: ch4, 5 Dc in 3rd chain from hook, join in top of ch4 (6)
R2: ch3, dc in same chain as join, 2dc in each around, fasten off and weave ends(12)

With Mustard/gold

Join with a sc at any dc

R1: ch5, *skip next stitch, sc in next, ch5* , repeat from * to *. Join at first sc. (6 ch5 spaces,6 sc)
R2: slip stitch into first Ch5 space, *ch3, 4 dc, picot, 5 dc, slip stitch into next ch space* repeat from *to* around, join and fasten off and weave ends.
And there you have it, a Pretty Little Sunflower <3
I used mine for a applique on a dish cloth holder for her stove handle.
