Crochet cushion cover

An easy cushion cover in lovely Rowan wool

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a 14″ circular cushion made in Rowan ‘drift’ super chunky wool on a 10mm hook, based on a pattern in ‘Cute and easy crochet’ by Niki Trench. I had to pre-cover the cushion pad with two circles of maroon cotton, as the light colour of the pad showed through the stitches. I have finished with a frill in treble crochet, which will need to be undone if I ever want to wash the cover, but I couldn’t think of a neat finish that could be opened. It took 2 x 100g balls for the circular pieces and another 60g for joining together and the frill. Wool from Skyeworks gallery, above the Isle of Skye bakery http://www.skyeworksgallery.co.uk/
