Ever since my visit to Morocco last year, hosted by the uber stylish and very talented Ingrid from Wood wool stool. I have longed to make this crochet cushion cover. Moroccan in style, with a clever loopy stitch. I have added four bright pink tassels that exactly match the style of the cushion covers I bought in Marrakech…
Last year I lost my crochet inspiration. This year its back stronger than ever!
Crochet Cushion & Other Patterns
This is one of Ingrid’s patterns, she has lots of stylish patterns in her Etsy store do take a look
I love ingrid’s style, she has a contemporary style and doesn’t churn out patterns that you see everywhere. Unique is the word I think I am looking for.
I love Moroccan Style
Laid back and relaxed, the textural simplicity of traditional Moroccan style has always appealed to me. I love the colours, the tassels and all the fringes. As you can probably tell from this little corner of our sitting room…
My Crochet Mojo is back!
Having taught myself to crochet a few years ago I became hooked, yes I know a very old joke, hooked get it? as in crochet hook duh! Unfortunately, last year I lost my crochet inspiration.
I’m pleased to say that this year my crochet habit is back stronger than ever
Plus I can happily report the crochet cushion cover I started earlier this year is now complete…would you like to see the process from start to finish?
Ok so let’s take it from the beginning…
The cushion is made in squares which are then sewn or crocheted together, like a patchwork quilt. I made the back plain in double crochet stitch, with stripes and only a couple of rows of loop stitches.
Make and attach 4 Hot Pink Tassels…
Believe me this is the easy bit, I use a Clover tassel maker, they are brilliant.
This one was fast and easy to make, but above all it was fun!
So do you like it too?
