Jane wanted a footstool pattern with sunflowers and crows that she could hook in a large cut, 9 or 9.5. After some fiddling and talking back and forth, this is the first of the new sunflower footstool patterns.
The seam for one of the sunflowers becomes its stem. After the footstool is sewn up, you have to hook two rows to fill in the space, perfect for a sunflower stem.
Possible ideas to modify this rug hooking pattern:
- Add more dropped petals. I only drew one in, but you could do more.
- Add silly straw hats to the crows
- Hook an intricate pattern inside the center of the flowers
- Hook it in non-traditional sunflower colors, such as purple
How would YOU modify the pattern?
