The size of each block and a pillow as a result will naturally depend on yarn and hook chosen. My squares are 12.5 cm x 12.5 cm (5” x 5”) large. And my front decoration is 40 cm x 40 cm (16” x 16”).

This is pattern page for “Circles of the Sun” Mystery CAL 2015 (from 26 June 2015).

this Mystery CAL will be about Overlay crochet and granny squares. The main aim of this project is to introduce Overlay Crochet technique to you. If you have never heard about it before it will be a nice opportunity to start mastering it. And if you tried my patterns already – then you will get a chance to make one more project in this amazing technique.

During this CAL you will create a front decoration for a pillow cover consisting of 9 squares made in overlay crochet. There will be no pattern for the back side of the pillow, so you will need a fabric pillow cover onto which you will sew your crocheted decoration.

Materials: yarn in 6 colors. I used Cotton Light by DROPS one skein of each color, crochet hook of an appropriate size (I used 3.25 mm (D) hook), sccissors and tapestry needle to weave yarn tails in. And you will also need ready fabric pillow cover of a needed size onto which you will sew your ready decoration.

All tutorials will be published on my blog. Please, check it for further details.
