A stack of crochet cushions is absolutely perfect for wintertime, especially when you have crochet them yourself. Crochet cushion covers is a great way to advance your crochet skills and very rewarding. You can practise your crochet stitches, relaxing mind and body while in return you get a pair of affordable and home-made accessories. With a few coloured crochet cushion covers you can quickly change your living room. Once you’ve mastered the basics of crocheting, you can freely vary with crochet stitches and create different textures.
Using one bobbin of RibbonXL you can crochet about 40x40 cm. When you use Zpagetti to crochet a cushion, you can crochet 50x50 cm with one bobbin. However, RibbonXL fabric yarn does tend to be a bit stretchy and the Zpagetti yarn can vary in thickness and elasticity. We recommend testing the tension of your crochet work and the gauge before you start. It can be tempting to skip crochet a tension square, to test the gauge, but it is much safer to test the tension and stitches a few rows. Choose a washable filling in a matching colour. Then your crochet cushions can be washed in the washing machine without taking out the filling.
