Circles of the Sun – Video tutorials, yarn amounts, colorway

It is Friday again and today is the last day of the Circles of the Sun Overlay crochet along. It is a happy day to finish our design and a sad day because our project is finished. I really hope you enjoyed working on it as much as I did.


Yarn amounts

You will need one ball of each color you want to use for your squares to make a Circles of the Sun cushion. I used 7 colors of Scheepjes Cotton 8, and I had more than enough yarn. I believe if you have 5 or 6 colors, you will still need only 1 ball of each. You have freedom to play with the positioning of the colors to best suit your color selection. I have my color placement in my color chart. I used colors 669, 700, 710, 711, 714, 716, and 717.

Scheepjes Cotton 8 and Sunkissed is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/International), Love Crafts (US/UK) and Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU) to name but a few Scheepjes stockists.

Video tutorials

In each of the 9 videos that make up Cirles of the Sun you can find one of the squares. All videos are available in a single YouTube playlist on my channel.

My cushion

I kept track of my colors, and I have them organized for you in a color chart using Scheepjes Cotton 8 yarn. Last step if to complete your cushion. You can make an inner and a backing for it using a fabric you love, or sew the crochet fabric on to an existing cushion.

I hope you enjoyed doing overlay crochet and that you learned something new during this CAL.
