Moroccan Style Crochet Cushion Cover

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…

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.

    Hi Ashley,
    I came across your blog from recommendations from Woman & Home. I follow many American blogs but not many UK ones bizarrely. I had a lovely read of your past posts , you are right up my street. 😻I intend this year to be the year I learn to crochet. 😼

      Shirley Hello !
      So lovely to have a new reader on ldj … you are so welcome!
      I do know what you mean about US blogs there are lots of them writing about midlife, but not so many in the uk?
      So as you can see I’m aiming to change that.
      Is there anything in particular that you like to read about?
      Good luck with the crochet too such a relaxing hobby…
      have a great week
      Ashley x
