Fancy making a very simple crochet cushion cover? Look no further, introducing “Cross My Heart” Crochet Cushion Cover Pattern, now available!
I’ve recently been working on updating my colour-scheme at home. Because I’m too lazy to paint walls, I decided to raid my stash and get creative with some yarn. I created this crochet cushion cover pattern after the falling in love with cross stitch again after taking part in the Hygge CAL that Scheepjes held a couple of years ago.
This cushion Cover is a simple way to use up stash yarn.
You’ll need 2x balls of Scheepjes Stonewashed (or c.260m / 285 yards of another DK / Sport-weight yarn if you’re stash-busting like me!) and a few meters of some different shades of Scheepjes Catona (or other similar yarn, its a mercised cotton, fingering weight). I love Scheepjes Catona for this type of thing. You can get it in many colours and it comes in 10g balls for £55p (you wont need more than 10g per shade!). I used the following shades, but feel free to get creative!
- 124 (Ultramarine)
- 130 (Old Lace)
- 201 (Electric Blue)
- 391 (Deep Ocean Green)
- 397 (Cyan)
- 400 (Petrol Blue)
To make the pattern you’ll make a crochet fabric and then cross-stitch on top of that. Don’t worry if you’ve not tried to cross-stitch on crochet before, I’ve included a full photo tutorial in the pattern showing you exactly how to get started!
And here it is, taking pride of place on my sofa!
If you fancy giving this pattern a go, you can find it in my Ravelry store (here)
I’d love to see your creations if you do give it a go! Feel free to share your projects on Ravelry, instagram or facebook and tag me if you do!
Looks great Jo, and I love the blue shades you have used.
thanks! it goes with my new lounge colour-scheme! 😊
Fun project! I love finding ways to stashbust like that.
thanks! me too. After stash-organising this weekend I can confirm it needs busting!!!! 🤦♀️😂
Gorgeous! I may just have to go buy this. 🙂
thanks! 😊 I hope it brightens your home as much as it did mine if you do!
Very pretty – looks like a good stashbuster!
