Circles of the Sun by Lilla Bjorn

Dear all,

I am thrilled to announce that I got my mojo back  :)

And here is the project I was telling you about that made me plunge back into crochet after that sad period I suffered from.

It is the circles of the sun cal (crochet along) by Tatsiana from Lilla Bjorn crochet. You can read all about it in her blog Lilla Bjorn Crochet This link will take you straight to the general information page and if you scroll down a bit you will find the links for all the tutorials. It is a fantastic design in overlay crochet and Tatsiana did a marvelous job planning, designing, and organizing this CAL. It needs a bit of skill if you are not familiar with overlay crochet but I have to say that she wrote the pattern in such a way that makes it so easy; and there are pictures to make it more comprehendible :)

I used Alize cotton cold which is a mixture of cotton and acrylic, and a 4.00 mm hook. The end result came a little big bigger but I am so happy with it :) I joined my blocks with the right sides facing and crocheting in both loops. I changed the border as well, did the one in the below the picture. I found a chart of it while searching google. 

All I have to do now is buy some fabric to make my cushion - I am laying it here over my sofa's cushion. Still figuring out how I am going to do it but I know that I am buying some upholstery fabric to make it more durable as well as washable.

Mmm, and I really need to paint my walls into a bright colour!!!!

So stay tuned and go take a look at Tatsiana's blog, she has some amazing designs going on there both free and paid.

Till then, happy hooking everyone,
