Cushion with Sunburst-like Motif

(Crochet * Stash-buster)





I had left-over yarn from my “Study In Squares” blanket, so I thought of making a flowery cushion with the remaining yarn…
Me quedó lana sobrante de la frazadaque hice para mi estudio, así que pensé hacer un cojín floreado… 





I used the same colours as the blanket: grey, cream, fuscia, vintage pink, green, camel, beige; and for the background: brown.
Utilicé los mismos colores de la frazada: gris, crema, fucsia, rosado antiguo, verde, camello, beige, y todo el fondo en café.



Both sides of the cushion are made with the flower motifs.
Ambos lados del cojín los hice con el motif de las flores. 



I was inspired by the famous “Sunburst motif”, but made a few variations to the original pattern: (a) For the center, instead of using trebles, I made a row of 8 sc, and then a row of 16 Dc.  (b)  Instead of the 5-DC clusters, I made 3 Dc clusters, for the petals.  For those of you who like graphic patterns as much as I do, here it is...
Me inspiré en el famoso motif “Sunburst”, pero le hice unas cuantas variaciones.  Este es el patrón gráfico de lo que hice (por si quisieran probarlo…):




[Note: Sandra @ Cherry Heart made a very similar motif, and has a wonderful photo-tutorial in her blog: Rosie Posie Grannie].  If you are curious to see the Sunburst original pattern, here is the link: in German (with photos), and in English.  You will notice that the petals are more puffed.] 
[Nota: Sandra @ Cherry Heart hizo un motif similar, y tiene un tutorial en su blog.  Es en inglés, pero con muchas fotos.]






WIP (work in progress): Currently I am making a blanket with this motif, but with a blue background…
Actualmente estoy haciendo una frazada con este motif, pero con el fondo en azul marino…

    1. Elda, se unen con un punto bajo en la parte posterior. El punto bajo se pasa por dos puntos correspondientes de dos motifs, y se cierra el punto junto. (En You Tube hay videos: sc joining method)

  18. Gorgeous Ana - I love circles in squares - thank you so much for the pattern :)
    It is ages since I have had a chance to do any crochet, if I can quickly whizz around and visit all my bloggy friends (that I also haven't been fonding time to visit recently ...) then maybe I can squeeze a bit in tonight ...
    Hope you are well
