Am I the only woman in blogland not to have used Stylecraft DK yarn before? It is absolutely fantastic stuff. How can acrylic yarn be this soft? It comes in such a wonderful array of colours too. So you can make this cushion to sit in any room in any colour way.
The pattern called for the cushion pad to be sewn inside the crochet work but I have small children, I will need to take it off to wash, I am sure of that, so I made a button opening.
The kit includes a pattern, yarn and a cushion pad. One cushion uses one whole ball of cream and a little bit of each colour so there is enough to make another one for someone else.
My mind is now whirring with making cushions in all colours using up bits of stash from carrier bags stuffed under my sofa! I am sort of yarn bombing our own lounge. My Laura Ashley curtains are looking dated now but I will have to hang on a bit longer.
Happy Crafting. Thanks Minerva
