Crochet Sunflower Large Granny Square for Crochet Afghan

Designing this square I was thinking about sunflower as the main motif. I wanted to design a square with a textured center. Usually, sunflower crochet squares have very simple centers made of several rounds of double crochets. I wanted the center to be more textured and at the same time, it would be possible to mix several brown yarns to make it look more interesting. And here it is. It is easy to crochet.
