Circles of the Sun Block 5

From a lovely holiday destination I am slightly late in posting you block 5 of the Circles of the Sun Overlay CAL by LillaBjorn Crochet. The design for block 5 has a relaxing feel to it, or maybe it’s just my holiday vibes 😀

My Cushion

I used the following Scheepjes Cotton 8 colors to make this square:

  • Round 1 – light gray (700)
  • Round 2 – jeans blue (711)
  • Round 3 – bordeaux (717)
  • Round 4 – orange (716)
  • Round 5 – olive (669)
  • Round 6 – light gray (700)
  • Round 7 – jeans blue (711)
  • Round 8 – canary (714)
  • surface crochet – orange (716)

We now have 5 squares, more than half way done!

See you again soon and if you are on summer break like I am, take a well deserved time out. If not, next week time for part 6!

  1. Hi Esther, I could listen to you all day. My question is how many of each block is made for the total? Just one? Thanks and thank you for ALL of your wonderful videos on the Sophie. I have barely started it but will be relying heavily on those videos to make it. Thanks again!!

  2. Hi Esther,

    I would like to thank you for your wonderful tutorials. I’m new to crochet, started in Fevruary and have only managed basic granny squares up to now. I saw the Circles Of The Sun CAL and was inspired by your videos to give it a go! Your explanations are so clear and easy to follow that I have been astonished that I have been able to complete all six. I have also gained such an understanding of the crochet terms, different stitches and techniques. I have loved doing all 6 squares and look forward to completing the remaining squares and the cushion. My next project is the Scheepjes 2014 Cal. This looks amazing, thank you for all your hard work.
