After over 4 years of waiting, my husband finally has his cushion cover:
The cushion cover definitely did NOT reach 28″ x 28″ (the size of the pillow insert), but it is stretchy and the insert was easy enough to get inside.
I love the texture of this pattern. It looks cool but it feels pretty neat, too, even in 100% acrylic yarn (I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby).
I forgot to take a picture of the back, but I seamed the sides to where the ends of the cover overlap, like a pillow sham. No buttons needed!
Chris likes it; it’s big and squishy and the pattern is the same as a large blanket his great-aunt made for him (just in different colors — she used solid red, white, & blue). It fits well on our daybed-turned-couch.
Now it’s time to work on the 8+ other WIPs I have going on before starting anything new.
It’s also time for something special to happen here on Not Your Average Crochet — stay tuned for something exciting!
Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!
