Moody blues

This is my second crocheted circular cushion, and I am feeling rather pleased with it

Made using 300g of Rowan Drift ‘Shore’ and a 10mm needle. The trick is to crochet both circles at the same time so the tension stays the same row for row. I also found it useful to mark each ‘double’ stitch with a safety pin right at the start of the circle, and make sure the two circles had the same number of safety pins! (you may laugh – but it took me a couple of goes) The cushion is 16″ diameter plus the frill – a single treble stitch right around the circle, as there wasn’t enough wool for more.
