Another Cushion?

Why yes.

Another cushion and this time it's round.

I've actually made a couple of these now; they're so relaxing and rhythmic to crochet.  It's just my favourite half trebles (half doubles US), joined at the end of each round by a slip stitch.  Of course, if you slightly stagger where you join your rounds and/or new colours, there is much less of a visible 'seam' but I don't think it detracts at all when the cushion is just one colour.


I'm still having a love affair with the Rooster Almerino yarns - here I used glace, strawberry cream and gooseberry dk.  Even the names of the colours are a joy!


Oh, and an adorable Attic 24 may rose and leaf again.  Naturally.

Pretty huh?

  1. Oooh, yummy! I made one of those cushions a few years ago but have gone off the colours a bit now. Might have to rectify that. I haven't tried the Rooster Almerino but keep seeing it recommended for lots of patterns so will have a scoot about for it.

    Lovely to see you, my dear. I have missed you. Thank you too for your gorgeous birthday greeting. You're a star! xxx

  6. Very nice! And you definitely can't even tell where the "seam" is. I must make a round cushion one day!

  9. Oh Heather, this is gorgeous! Those colours are perfect. Where do you buy your yarn, online? We have a hobbycraft near us but the selection isn't always great.
    Good to see you here, I hadn't checked by because I am a BAD online friend (*slaps self*) but saw your comment today (you don't eat cake??!) and came rushing here to find everything is beautiful as always :) x

  11. Hi Heather , love your round cushion....it's so pretty.
    That stitch is my fave ....grows quicker than a single but more solid than a double ( treble ). You make it sound very easy but it also looks like a lot of counting to me and your joins are so neat.

  12. Hi Heather - did you follow a pattern for the pillow? What did you stuff it with? I have been looking for something nice to make for a Great Aunt who is in a nursing home and this looks ideal as its really pretty and something she could have in her room to make it feel more homely there. xxx
