This sun is very FUN to make! We start by creating the back then front of the sun, then crochet them together. As we crochet them together, we’re making the sun’s “triangles”. Next, we add the smile!

Sun (Make 2. Make back first, then front)

In Yellow

To create the sun, we make a front piece and a back piece. After we have both sides made, we crochet them together, and create the sun’s spikes when crocheting the two pieces together. First, create the back of the sun, then create the front of the sun!

Round 1: 6 Sc in Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: *Inc* all around (12)
Round 3: *Inc, Sc* all around (18)
Round 4: *Inc, Sc 2* all around (24)
If you’re making the back of the sun, do “Back Round 5”. If you’re making the front of the sun, do “Front Round 5”.
Back Round 5: *Inc, Sc 3* all around (30)
In the next Round, we will add eye stitch markers to mark where to place the eyes.
Front Round 5: *Inc, Sc in the next 3 st* 2 times. *Inc* in the next st. Sc in the next st and add a different colored st marker to the Sc just made. This marks where to place the eye. Sc in the next 2 st. Repeat *Inc in the next st, Sc in the next 3 st* 2 times. Add a different colored st marker to the last Sc you just made. *Inc in the next st, Sc in the next 3 st*Β  (30)
Round 5 Eye Markers Pictured Below

Round 6: *Inc, Sc 4* all around (36)
Round 7: *Inc, Sc 5* all around (42)
Round 8: *Inc, Sc 6* all around (48)
Round 9: *Inc, Sc 7* all around (54)
Round 10-13: *Sc* all around (54)
Finish off back sun. If making the front sun, switch to a darker yellow and continue onto the assembly. Also, add safety eyes in the marked areas from Round 5 now.


Line up the front and back of the sun as shown, the right sides facing out (Pic 1). Now insert your crochet hook under BOTH the front and back sun (Pic 2)

Repeat *Sc in the next st, Dc in the next 2 st, Trc in the next st, Ch 1, Trc in that same st, Dc in the next 2 st* all around, under BOTH the front and back sun (Pic 3-8). Stuff the sun before fully crocheting shut (Pic 9)

This will create little triangles and crochets the two pieces together (Pic 10-12).

10. 11.



In Black Embroidery Thread

Insert needle with thread next to the right eye (Pic 1). Reinsert needle next to the left eye and pull needle out at the middle of the mouth (Pic 2). Make sure the smile is under the thread (Pic 3). Reinsert needle under the smile, but in the same stitch you pulled the needle out of (Pic 4). Pull the needle out to the original insertion spot. Tie a knot with both ends of yarn.
