The sunflower can be worked in any yarn/thread.  Just use the hook appropriate to your project.

Chain 6 and form into a loop

20 half double crochet in loop  

2 half double crochet in each stitch.  You can chain to for the first one or pull up a long loop - depending on your personal style.  You will have 40 stitches at this point

break off brown yarn and switch to yellow

2 single crochet in the first two stitches 
*then chain 8
single crochet in the next 4 stitches 
repeat from * around. 
When you get to the last one you will only have two stitches remaining, but add the first two in and you've got 4.   

this will make 10 loops for the petals.  Each loop is separated by 4 stitches.  

petals are made by 
half double crochet
8 double crochet
chain 2
8 double crochet
half double crochet
slip stitch in between 2nd and 3rd single crochet on the brown circle. to anchor the petal. 
do that 10 times and you'll have a flower

break off, weave in ends, block etc.
