Crochet Pattern: Sunflowers & Butterflies - Interlocking (Locked Filet Mesh / LFM) and Overlay Mosaic; written instructions and charts
Digital file type(s): 2 PDF
To me, a sunflower represents hope. I looked online at a few flower shops and tattoo parlors and they seem to all attribute different meanings to the sunflower such as long life, happiness, faith or good luck.
"I want to be like a sunflower so that even on the darkest days I will stand tall and find the sunlight." -Unknown
I can't look at a sunflower without thinking of Van Gogh's famous paintings, which of course leads me to thinking about Doctor Who and Amelia Pond and that wonderful episode of television which combines sci-fi and art - my two favorite things!

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.
Overlay mosaic crochet is single and double crochet stitches. The double crochet stitches cover some of the other color's single crochet stitches to create the design. My patterns instruct you to cut your yarn at the end of each row. The back is striped but often gives a faint impression of the pattern on the front (sort of like illusion knitting).
I have YouTube tutorials available for both crochet methods! Follow this link to get to my YouTube channel and find my other social links: linktr.ee/LFMandMosaic
