So last week I teased you with a little taster of my latest project, my new floral cushion...
This was inspired after I saw images of the Spring/Summer fashion collection from Chanel, so many floral delights I was in my element!
It was this specific outfit, that led me to do a monochrome cushion.
I adore colour, so it would not naturally occur to me to use only one!
As there wasnt going to be a mix of shades for impact, then I needed some texture. So, having tried a square of c2c (corner to corner) in my mood blanket, I knew this was the perfect opportunity to use it again.crochet spot. The instructions are so easy to follow and its such a lovely flowing pattern that other than looking at the start of the increase and the decrease I was just able to follow the natural rhythm. I enjoyed making these squares, and they worked up pretty quickly.
I finished off the squares with single crochet stitches, but only working into the back of the stitch, which gives it a more horizontal slant.
Then it was time for the embellishments. I worked six petals into the centre circle.
I then picked up stitches from the back and worked another six petals underneath. Just a few more blooms need to be made to carry on round the edges.
In complete contrast ive completed another set of seven multi-coloured blooms for this years mood blanket.
Its been mighty cold this week, and we did have a surprise flurry of snow, although we can't compete with the proper snow up north of course.
But I'm wishing for a bit of Spring...
