This time, I made one for myself, out of leftovers from the other two cushions I made for my parents and a cardigan I also made for myself. Made from Patons Regal Cotton 4 ply. I made my cushion from ‘Modern Crochet’, a pattern book from Patons, the pattern is called ‘Triangles Cushion’.
I made these two cushions as a present for my parents for their sofas. The pattern is called ‘Triangles Cushion’. It came from ‘Modern Crochet’, a leaflet from Patons. The cushion was crocheted in the suggested yarn by Patons, which was called Patons Regal 4 ply cotton 50 gram balls, using a 3.00 mm hook and a 40 cm x 40 cm cushion insert. The colours I chose were different to the ones in the leaflet as I wanted to match my parent’s new rug that they have on their living room floor. I am happy with the results, and so are my parents.
This is the front of the cushion you see in the next two posts. I used a pattern by Priscilla Hewitt, “Sunburst Granny Square”, (1998), found on the internet for the square motifs. Here, every one of the sixteen squares are different in colour combination.
This is a close up detail of the cushion I made for a friend, the back of the cushion is striped and was in the previous post.
This is the other side of the cushion I made for a friend’s birthday. I wanted to make the back different to the front for variety, so that it can be displayed differently on either side. I also left one side open and made buttonholes and sewed clear, small buttons on to close up the cushion. This is so the cushion cover can be unbuttoned and washed if desired. I used the same colours in these stripes as I did on the front.
