The crochet part was finished some weeks back and today I made up the cushion.

I started this as a simple crochet project to take away on holiday back in early June.

Just a chain stitch grid with trebles. No counting so easily picked up and put down.

I’m nipping across to handmade Monday now to see what everyone else has been up to

Love, Lucie xx

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

    • Sorry, been really busy at work this week. This can be adapted to any size you want. If you click on my ‘holiday takeaway’ there is a link to a foreign site with lots of examples of this work with some good diagrams.
      Basically it starts as a grid of trebles with 2 chains in between. It is handy that you can increase the grid in any direction if you want it larger to fit your top pattern on or you could work it all out on a piece if paper at the beginning.
      Then the top is 4 trebles (with no chains at all) crocheted onto the grid between each section of the grid in any pattern you like.
      You may decide to use 5 or 3 trebles depending on your yarn and hook.
      Hope that helps but the link is very useful. Lucie x

  19. Can you tell me how to add fabric to crocheted pieces? I have crocheted a piece and want it for the top of my pillow…and I want the backing to be fabric. What is the procedure to add fabric backing to a crocheted piece. Thank you so much! Sandy at http://www.sanderellas1.com
