Crochet Sunflower Pattern

Size J Hook, worsted weight yarn

Chain 5, slip stitch to join. insert hook in first chain from hook, yo pull up loop, ch 3 with first loop on hook (ignore second loop), yo pull through both loops on hook (this makes one bobble), do this in each chain (5 bobbles).join with slip stitch.

Next round make bobbles all the way around. (10 bobbles) Fasten off. A huge thank you to the Crochet Dude for teaching me his modified bobble stitch. It is perfect for the center of a sunflower!
