Colour block cushion

My stash busting colour block cushion is complete.Colour block crochet cushion

This cushion was not without a small hiccup along the way.

This is the result of crocheting for 2 hours straight on a train, as opposed to my usual, not to be recommended for posture, slouched position on the settee. I’m always advising those new to crotchet to practice, practice their tension until it is even before starting something major.

The second half of the photo is after I had undone up to the mustard and taken up my usual slouched position.

But now it’s done.Colour block crochet cushion

I’ve slashed some stash.

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.

  1. This turned out very nice! Did you use a pillow form to stuff it? I have some forms in my sewing stash and I haven’t knit in a while. This is inspiring me to grab my needles and a ball of yarn at night.

    • I used stuffing out of a pillow form as the ones I had were not the right shape/size. If I need to wash it I’ll just undo the last crochet row and empty it before washing.
      Nice and simple to do on an evening.

  4. So you weren’t actually crocheting for 2 hours ‘straight’ on a train at all were you? 😉 Sorry, couldn’t resist.

  7. Definately worth pulling back the wonky bit, I think I’d have tried to bish-bash-bosh it and hope it’d be ok, then it wouldn’t have looked anything like yours. Looks fab😀

  8. You were so good to undo the wonky bit – I think I would have been tempted to sew it straight by machine:)

  10. Would blocking gave helped even it up do you think or would that just have changed the stitch definition?
