Skill Level & Special Stitches
This pattern is suitable for an experienced beginner / improver to intermediate. It’s a great opportunity for an experienced beginner to try out new skills and techniques.
This pattern uses the foundation half double crochet and join as you go techniques. Descriptions of special stitches are given in the pattern and modifications offered for those with less experience.
500 yds red acrylic dk yarn, 150 yds black acrylic dk yarn and 150 yds white acrylic dk yarn.
Any acrylic dk yarn can be used, the pattern in the picture used Stylecraft Special DK in Lipstick (1.5 skeins), Black (less than half a skein) and White (less than half a skein).
The pattern is for a 46cm (18in) square pillow pad but can be adjusted to fit any size cushion.
The gauge for each piece is detailed in the pattern to assist with resizing.
I love all things slightly off the wall and a little to the left of mainstream I’m so inspired by people who colour outside the lines which is definitely what the creators of Twin Peaks did, both in the 90s and today! It was they who inspired this geometric colour popping crochet cushion cover.
