We have a papasan chair in the corner of our kitchen which I really love. It's a well used chair particularly by Miss M, she likes to sit there with her book and read whilst I cook or tidy up in the kitchen. I felt that it needed a crochet cushion to brighten the area up a little and add a nice homemade element to the space.
The yarns used were all DK from my stash, a mixture of Sirdar Snuggly and Stylecraft mainly. The back of the cushion is red. I chose the nautical colours as our kitchen has a bit of a beach theme going on. The pattern was a really simple one from Nicki Trench's Crochet Living which I blogged about here. I really enjoyed making this and I am happy with how it has turned out. In fact, I have another cushion on my hook for the living room from the same pattern because I liked making this one so much! I so enjoy making things for my home.
I chose some pretty buttons from my collection to close the cushion - I need to be able to wash this cushion cover as I don't have the kind of family that are especially good at keeping things clean!
Some more Thursday crochet here...
