Pattern instructions

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


See diagrams A.1 and A.2. A.2 shows how the rounds start/finish.




The cushion cover is worked in the round, but is turned after each round and worked back and forth on each round so that the texture is the same the whole way through. The cushion cover is sewn top and bottom to finish.

Work 168 chain stitches and fasten them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Turn the piece and work 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 5 chain stitches. Then work as follows: * Skip 1 chain stitch, work 1 double crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches*, repeat from *-* to end of round, fasten with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch on the round = 144 double crochets. Turn, work 1 chain stitch, then work 1 double crochet in each double crochet on the round. Finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Now work according to diagrams A.1 and A.2 as follows: Work 3 chain stitches (=A.2), 24 repeats of A.1 and finish the round with a slip stitch in the 3rd stitch on the round (A.2), turn and continue working according to the diagrams. NOTE: A.2 is not counted in the number of stitches. Continue this pattern upwards until the piece measures approx. 40 cm, work 1 round of double crochets, cut the strand and pull it through.

ASSEMBLY: Sew the top seam, edge to edge in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch. Place the cushion in the cover and sew the bottom seam.
