Camping crochet cushion 

Do you remember my little camping crochet project? The last time you saw it, it was looking like this…


Once we’d got home, unpacked and I’d started the mission of post camping washing, I was itching to continue this project. I started by framing each circle with white to make it into a square. It was actually a lot quicker than I thought.


I really love the effect of the different shades of the same colour. I can see me doing something like this in the future. Hmmm, lots of ideas flying around. Once they were all done, I needed to block them as they’d gone a bit curly.


I was thoroughly enjoying this. Now to join.


This is the difference between blocked and unblocked. What a difference a bit of steam makes. I measured each side up against my cushion pad but it was not quite big enough yet. I decided to add some rows of trebles.


I joined the two sides around the pad and debated whether or not to put a fancy border on it. I decided not, thought it best to keep it simple. So here it is…


And on its final resting place 


I think the colours are a perfect match.

There was no set pattern I followed for this cushion.  I combined two patterns to get the circle how I wanted it, then part of another pattern to do the framing. The rest I just made up as I went. I’m pretty pleased with it.

I think along with the blooming flower I’m already making, I may just have to do one more cushion for here. After all, you can never have too many cushions can you?

    It’s turned out lovely. 😊 I agree, you can never have too many cushions (my kids would say the same about blankets!)

    It’s a lovely cushion – so envious that you can turn a ball of wool (sorry, yarn as my sister keeps telling me!) into something so pretty.

    I’ve also made a few different projects using those bullseye squares. They’re so much fun to work on! I used them last year to make all of my little nieces cute little tote bags in lots of wild colours. Your beach cushion is gorgeous!
