Bright and Sunny Summer Crochet

Circles of the Sun Squares from Week 1 & 2 (unblocked)

Bright colors and small squares are my idea of a perfect summer crochet project.  The colors lift my spirits and the squares are quick to work up so they fit well into a busy summer schedule!

The Circles of the Sun CAL [CAL = Crochet Along] fits the bill perfectly.  As a plus, I get to discover and explore new techniques with yarn.  I have discovered surface crochet which adds texture and dimension to your yarn projects and have learned a better way to crochet in the back loop – – no more loose stitches – – YEA!

The designer, Lilla Bjorn, used a thinner yarn and smaller hook, so my squares are a bit larger than the original design, but then that makes them uniquely mine. Since I’m working on a number of other projects, I decided to go with Lilla’s color choices instead of planning my own. The end project is to be a pillow, however with my larger squares, I ought to get two pillows made. I plan to use them to brighten up the dark brown sofa in our family room. Can’t wait to see how they will look. I still need to decide on a crochet or fabric backing. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Only four more weeks to go, and I can’t wait for each new square to be released. I have probably finished each square the same day that I started and usually on Friday when each new design is released. The design patterns may look intricate, but don’t be intimidated as they are all just combinations of single, half-double, double and triple crochet. Are you ready to get started?  You can find the patterns here or on Facebook at the OFFICIAL CCC SOCIAL GROUP.
