I decided a couple of weeks ago that quite a few of our cushions in the living room were starting to look a little tired and in need of freshening up.
So, naturally, I thought that I would crochet some pretty new covers! Above is one I finished a few days ago. I love the sunny yellow colour and it really brightens up the sofa. I'm so happy with it and it's had the nod of approval from the rest of the family as well!
I made two solid 12 round granny squares for the front and back pieces and crocheted 3 sides together using double crochet. I left one side open and attached some polka dot buttons so that the cushion cover could be washed - very important in this house! I used a 3.5mm hook and 2 balls of Sirdar Snuggly DK in shade Daisy. The little roses and leaves were made using scraps of DK yarn I had.
The pattern for the solid squares can be found on the wonderful Attic24 blog (link in my side bar) and the pattern for the roses and leaves are from Cute & Easy Crochet with Flowers by Nicki Trench.
I love my new little cushion and have already started on another!
Thank you so much for the suggestions given on my last post. You have given me some fantastic ideas and I can't wait to get started...you really are a fantastic lot...thank you.
