I finally got my ripple cylindrical cushion completed!!! Yeah!! After 4 false starts!! I just wasn’t happy with the yarns I was using. The colours had gone awry and then I discovered half way that it wasn’t going to fit properly…. so I had to pull out my original one. After a couple more starts and not liking the varying thickness of the yarns I was using I decided to see if I had enough of the yarn left from my Giant Granny Square. After a bit of sums I realized I could if I just did one row of each colour.
I straightened the two wavy ends first by adapting a pattern in the book shown in the first picture. There is a square ripple cushion in this book but using a different pattern to Lucy’s Neat Ripple pattern. It had straightened wavy ends so I just worked out how to apply something similar to mine. I used a combination of double crochet(UK) half treble and treble (UK) Then I made up a little ruffly edging and used a cording which I made from yarn to draw up the ends. I’m quite pleased with the result.
In case anyone is interested the ruffle edging is just DC(UK, SC US) into every stitch with 3 chains to link them.
The other WIP I finished was a wizard hat for my DS. He was holding a themed party and asked for this hat. It’s by designer April Folts and her pattern was purchased from her Etsy shop “AprilDraven”.
Well that’s it from me for now :) One day I will get back to some quilting but for now I’m enjoying playing with yarn :))
Happy Stitching and Crocheting!
