Having turned my original Canterbury Bag into cushions for my Aunty and Uncle, I needed to once more turn the bag for life I received in Canterbury into a crocheted masterpiece.
|Conversion to two cushions|
Bag for life
double knit yarn
yarn sewing needle and scissors
I decided to use the centre from Attic 24' How to Hexagons and then square them instead of turning them into hexagons. A simple procedure - you just have 4 corners with 2 clusters in between.
I divided the yarn into four groups: dark blue, mid-blue, and turquoise for the centres and one colour for the edging to tie it all together.
Once I had made enough centres - 40 - 20 for each side - I arranged the them and used the edging to join-as-you-go.
Once joined I did one round of 3 clusters to tidy it all up, then I crocheted the two sides together, fastened off the ends and sewed in the lining (the bag for life).
