A round crochet cushion for A

A completed project! I have finished the crocheted cushion cover I was making for A.

She helped choose the colours. There were the expected pinks and purples but I was a little surprised when she was very keen we use the dark yellow which, left to my own devices, I wouldn't have picked. We then agreed to use the bright lime green to balance the strong yellow.

The yellow and green seem to lift the other colours, things would have been a little dull without them.

I had fun taking photos of the two completed sides.

The same colours were used on both side, just in a different random order. Twenty two rings of treble crochet made a cover 16" in diameter. I bought an 18" feather-filled pad from e-bay, buying a larger cushion gives a nice plump result...

Ta da!

A decided she'd rather it went on her bed.

And tonight she went to bed cuddling the cushion under the duvet as though it were one of her teddy bears. You can't get a better sign of approval than that!

PS My giveaway is still open, see previous post!

This is so lovely! If I were to pick the colours for a cushion, I would pick just the same! You are very talented! x

Fantastic, the colours are wonderful and the yellow works so well. It's lovely that A loves it so much, and it fits in perfectly with the decor in her room. What wools did you use? I'm coveting some of those shades!
