Sunburst crochet


Hi All, I hope you're all having a great weekend and enjoying the beautiful weather or are crafting whatever you enjoy.
I've done the first six squares of the throw for my sewing room chair, I think I will connect all these before doing the next batch and then I will add them as I go I think, 
so that is the next challenge, to learn how to connect them all :)


I Love this sunburst design, it's so bright and cheery.

Happy Crafting :)

for anyone wanting to try this craft or pattern I've added the link on how I learnt,
There are 4 easy rounds to learn.


if you click on the you tube link on the right of the video it will take you to this and the other 3 tutorials.

  2. Your crochet granny squares are looking gorgeous, Summer. These will make the most delightful of throws. I simply can't believe that you have just learnt to crochet. By any chance can you tell me the link you used to learn the art of crocheting. =)
