April Ami CAL- April the Sunflower- Week One

Posted by Lorene Eppolite on

Hi everyone! My name is Vincent and I am the artist behind Knot Bad! I am 23-year-old man who lives for Pokemon, heavy metal music, and my fair share of cinnamon rolls. I specialize in fun amigurumi and over the top crochet wear, however, I am making it a goal of 2018 to get into some fashion pieces. I reside in the Northwest of the United States in Portland, Oregon. I offer free patterns on my website, knotbadami.com, and you can find me on Instagram @knot.bad and Pinterest at Knot Bad Crochet!


 Hi Furlers! It’s Vincent from Knot Bad and with Spring just around the corner, what better way than to start the new season with a flower that shows off so much life, a sunflower! Just a simple and elegant flower, but it’s always held such a special spot in my heart. It truly screams new life to me! So here she is!


This week, I’m just introducing you and giving you a rundown of all the materials we will be needing to make this project. Does below you will see the materials lists, all the yarn I used was from Lion Brand but if you can find the same or similar colors in any worsted weight yarn, that will do, too! We will be making the main body, then the pieces to attach such as leaves and petals, and then assembling it all on the last week!



The yarn I used- All Lion Brand, but any color for worsted weight yarn will do

Vannas Choice in Toffee- 150 yards
Vannas Choice in Mustard- 100 yards
Vannas choice in Kelly Green- 100 yards
Vannas Choice in Black for embroidery
