Ripple Stitch Cushion Cover Pattern

Recently I was approached by The Sherborne Times to write a pattern for their FREE magazine on a bi-monthly basis.

The first one I published was in July and I am very excited to be able to share it with you on here.

 

This month I was inspired by the sea when designing this cushion cover.

Ripple Stitch Cushion Cover to fit a 14in cushion pad.

Rows 2 and 3 set your pattern.

We used the following colour pattern for our cushion cover:

Row 1: A

Row 2: C

Row 3: B

Row 4: A

Row 5: D

Continue until your cushion cover measures 28in.

Fasten off. Fold into an envelope cushion cover (so the top and bottom overlap). Sew both side edges. Sew buttons on. They will fit through the (1tr, 1Ch, 1tr) point.

NB:  If you are a tight crocheter, use a 4.5mm hook.
