Crochet Notes - Plum Blossom Cushion


Oatmeal - Stylecraft Life DK - 100g
Plum - Rico Essentials Merino DK - 100g
Purple - leftover Lang 4 ply sock yarn (used double) c. 25g


£3.99 bargain from Poundstretcher. (16 inches)



Use the African Flower Hexagon - this time I added a round of trebles - on the points of the flowers I did 2 trebles 2 chain 2 trebles - just to make them more defined.

I did 22 hexagons and I hand sewed them together.


I did around of trebles - with the exception of the straight edges along the top of the two hexagons that poke out on the top and the bottom on the above picture - here I did double crochets.

Then I did and extra row of trebles on the indented bits between the two hexagons that poke out along the top and bottom. I started with a 3 chain and finished with a double crochet into the straight edge - this seemed to blend in well.


Next I sewed all the ends in.
Then I pinned the African Flower fabric to the cushion cover that I had bought - keeping the zip open.
Then I hand stitched them together - here is the reverse side of the cushion.

Then I blocked the cover and hey presto - it was all complete:)

I really appreciate it if you can take time to comment - I love to read other people's thoughts and ideas.
Take care x
