“Inspired by rustic Nordic style, this cushion works up quickly and the impressive-looking stitch pattern is easy to learn.”
That description in Inside Crochet magazine (issue 58) was enough to get me ‘hooked’ (sorry…) so off I went to buy the yarn – James C Brett Chunky with Merino (70% acrylic/20% siliconised soft polyamide/10% Merino wool 100g/150m/164 yards. I also need 7 wooden buttons, a cushion pad and a 5mm hook. The 2.5mm hook and some embroidery yarn finished the cushion cover off with the red circle detailing. The completed cushion measured about 16 x 14 inches. The pattern is by Sophie Wire, a Kent-based crochet and sewing teacher. She has other patterns from sale on ravelry or etsy.
You can buy this cushion from my etsy site.
