Any household who is gifted with this Crochet Sunflower Afghan will probably be delighted as sunflowers are likened to the sun which is the symbol of life, abundance, new beginnings, opportunity and hope. I am reminded of the sunflower fields in my hometown which has become a tourist spot. There is something in sunflowers that really attract people of all ages, from near and far regardless of race, color and religion. This project is perfect for the living room sofa to welcome guests and friends.
