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.



See diagrams A.1 - A.5. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.




The cushion cover is worked in the round with circular needle, bottom up, and sewn together at top and bottom.

Cast on 168 stitches with red and circular needle size 4 mm = US 6 and work 1 RIDGE – see description above. Then work stockinette stitch in the round until the piece measures 3 cm = 1 1/8”. Now work according to the diagrams as follows: Work A.1 over all stitches (= 42 repeats). REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE! When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, work A.2 over all stitches (= 28 repeats). Then work as follows: *A.3d (= 1 stitch), A.3a (= 18 stitches), A3d (= 1 stitch), A.3a (= 18 stitches), A.3b (= 9 stitches), A.3c (= 18 stitches), A.3d (= 1 stitch), A.3c (18 stitches)*. Repeat from *-* 1 more time. When A.3 has been worked 1 time in height, work A.4 over all stitches (= 28 repeats). Then work A.5 over all stitches (= 42 repeats). Continue with stockinette stitch and red until the piece measures 40 cm = 15 3/4”. Work 1 ridge and loosely bind off.

Sew the top seam, edge to edge in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch. Place the filler cushion in the cover – make sure that you have a spruce tree in the middle of each side of the cushion. Sew the bottom seam.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Wat een goed idee! Dat is daar zelf niet op gekomen ben... Hartstikke bedankt!

Ik zou graag deze kussenhoes maken als echte hoes, die dus ook gewassen kan worden. Hoe maak ik hier een sluiting van knopen in zonder het patroon te verpesten?

Dag Monica,

Misschien een idee om lusjes aan de rand te breien/haken en aan de binnenkant knopen te naaien, zodat je de hoes met een blinde sluiting dicht kunt maken.
