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.


Video tutorial

In the final video I show you how to join the grannies we have been making over the past nine weeks. You can also find all the videos in one YouTube playlist on my channel.

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.

My cushion

I kept track of my colors, and I have them organized for you in a color chart. I used 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.

This was my first adventure in overlay crochet. If you would like to look back at the different weeks, read about it on my blog starting from the announcement, the different block starting from block 1, block 2, block 3, block 4, block 5, block 6, block 7, block 8, and the final square block 9.

I hope you enjoyed doing overlay crochet and that you learned something new during this CAL. I also hope to see you again for a new project.
