Hi, Thanks for stopping by. I’m going to tell you the story behind my latest design in Crochet Now magazine – issue 68 – a great Blanket stitch crochet cushion pattern.
This cushion cover was a joy to make, so so simple once I got in the swing of it.
It’s made using Blanket Stitch – which is one of my “go-to” Stitches it seems looking back over my past designs:
This crochet cushion has some amazing texture – which isn’t actually hard to achieve. So if you are looking for a project with a great look, that easy and gives a great closed texture look no further than here.
So here it is………. The Paris Blossom Cushion.
Let’s talk styling here, as this can really make or break a crochet photo.
This picture is just stunning, the right mix of light, with pinks, and accessories to show the cushion off to perfection- Great Job Crochet Now. Just look – I want to go and sit there, with a cup of tea, and a good book and relax.
(Now compare the above to what I took before sending the cushion off to the magazine…….. and you’ll see exactly what I mean).
Yarn to make a Blanket Stitch Crochet Cushion
I actually think the yarn choice for the blue of this crochet cushion really really helps set this design off.
It was made with Cygnet Yarns DK Denim, which is a marled effect yarn, giving a great effect of a cloudy sky.
Combine this with Pink, Pale rose, and Buttercream for the flowers, and walnut for the tree – and you have a stunning cushion cover.
So why this crochet cushion cover design?
The commission call for this design was all about Paris in the Spring Time.
This was the commission call and mood boards for this design>>>
Having lived in Paris during the Spring, the blossom, and clear blue skies called out to me, that and the film Sabrina that I absolutely adore! (If you haven’t watched it – it’s well worth 2 hours!)
I’m always fascinated when I see the actual magazine come through – and what other designers have come up with! It’s a joy to see where everyones inspiration comes from.
So there you have it – my latest published crochet design.
