I chose a colour palette inspired by this hook that I picked up while on holiday earlier in the year. I decided to call it the Carnival Cushion as the colours remind me of a happy carnival :-)
I wanted the back and front to be very different so by simply turning the cushion over you get a completely look. A hooky version of buy one get one free!!!
The photograph above is the back of the cushion. Simple rows of double crochet in a mix of colours. A bit random. Which is tricky for me. I struggle with random. I prefer to control my randomness so it looks better ;-)
For the front of the cushion I really wanted something a little different. Still with the same colours but with some busy and calm elements.
I decided on a simple mitred square design.
2 colourful squares and 2 plain squares. I love how the plain squares really showcase the effect of this yarn! (You can buy the yarn here. It's not an affiliate link. I just love the service of this store!)
Because of the mitred square pattern these squares needed a little cajoling to block properly!
However the overall finished and blocked squares look really good together.
The joining was a bit of a challenge but the finished cushion looks really fabulous and I'm delighted with it!
I'm in the process of writing up a free tutorial for this cushion but will share the finished cushion photographs very soon!
Til next time x
