Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

See diagram A.1. The whole diagram is worked in stockinette stitch. Work with 3 balls so that you do not get long, loose lengths at the back of the piece. In other words, you work with 1 ball of christmas red on each side of the cover and 1 ball of cerise in the middle of the cover. NOTE: To avoid a hole when changing color, twist the strands together.

If you wish, the heart can be sewn on using grafting stitches after the cover is finished. In which case you work with christmas red over all stitches and the heart is sewn on with grafting stitches according to diagram A.1 afterwards.

The piece is worked back and forth and sewn together to finish.
Cast on 41 stitches with needle size 8 mm / US 11 and christmas red. Work 1 RIDGE – see description above. Then work stockinette stitch with 2 edge stitches in garter stitch in each side. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 9 cm / 3½'' (adjust so that the next row is from the right side) continue working as follows – read PATTERN TIP: Work 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, 7 stitches stockinette stitch, work diagram A.1 (= 23 stitches), 7 stitches stockinette stitch and 2 edge stitches in garter stitch. When A.1 has been completed in height, continue working in stockinette stitch and 2 edge stitches in garter stitch, with christmas red. When the piece measures 37 cm / 14½'', insert 1 marker in each side of the piece. Continue until the piece measures 73 cm / 28 3/4'', work 1 ridge and bind off.

Fold the piece at the markers. Sew both sides – sew in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch so that the seam is flat. Insert the cushion into the cover and then sew the bottom edge.


All measurements in charts are in cm.
