I mentioned on Monday, that I'd started a smaller crocheted project using the leftover wool from my Charlotte's Dream squares. I finished it late last night, so I can share it with you, and the links to the free patterns/tutorials, which helped me along the way (links are at the end of the post).
I love the lacy feel is gives to the cushion front; very soft and feminine and so much nicer than joining squares using the slipstitch method, which is the only way I know. Next up was the cushion back and I made a large solid granny square for this and then crocheted the outer edges of the cushion together.
Just a note regarding the cushion insert: I did make a homespun cover for the insert because you can see it through the cushion front and I thought this would give the cushion a neater finish.
So, here are the links to the free patterns/tutorials I used for my Daisy Wheel cushion
Daisy Wheel Granny Square Pattern- by Mandy of Crochet Redagpe
Continuous Flat Braid Join Tutorial- by The Patchwork Heart
Solid Granny Square (Cushion Back)- by Cherry Heart Crochet Corner
Each of these patterns/tutorials were detailed, easy to follow and well written so they made crocheting this cushion so easy for me :)
And here's the links to the wool and hook I used:
8ply cotton from Bendigo Woollen Mills and I used a 3.75mm Boye crochet hook.
Happy crocheting :)
