I am so pleased to share with you the Mustard Medley Cushion cover kit and pattern. This is a collaboration between myself and Fiona of Sew Happy Creative. Fiona is on Instagram and facebook. She also has an Etsy store where she sells more of her patterns and beautiful makes. I am thrilled she agreed to work with me.
We wanted to offer a kit that felt like a treat to yourself but could also be a perfect gift to give to a crocheter in your life. The ingredients are of a good quality and in large part have been sourced from other small businesses. See below for the kit contents. Fiona has compiled a very detailed tutorial with many helpful images. Cushion pad and Hook not included. You will need a 4.5mm hook. I have Clover and Knit pro waves hooks in stock.
The traditional granny square fitted perfectly for the design and the pattern/tutorial with extensive images and detailed descriptions will suit a confident or advanced beginner. We spent quite some time choosing the shades and our final choice was inspired by Orla Kiely and her Rhododendron design. I think it is a blend of shades that can work in many schemes.The yarn is Cahlista, this aran weight cotton yarn is beautiful to work with and makes a soft but hard wearing cushion cover. The shades we chose are 4 balls code 130 old lace, 1 ball of each of peach 414, saffron 249, moon rock 254, caramel 506.
