Have I shown you my Red Rum crochet cushion? I designed this cushion to help launch the new Aran weight yarn by Deramores – Deramores Studio Aran. I’m so pleased with it! If your sofa, chaise lounge or settee is looking a bit dull and uninspiring then this is the cushion for you!
Red Rum Cushion
Deramores Studio Aran is now hard to get your hands on but this cushion works brilliantly in Stylecraft Special Aran yarn. I recommend the following colours:
- Stylecraft Special Aran in Lipstick, 1246
- Stylecraft Special Aran in While, 1001
- Stylecraft Special Aran in Black, 1002
The front of the cushion is made from four squares with a jazzy black and white circle at each centre. Only basic stitches are used, there is one round where you’ll be working into front and back loops, and the frilly edging of the circles requires a little concentration, but, overall the cushion is a quick and fun make. The back is worked in three parts, starting with a black and white stripey band onto which you’ll work basic rows in red, then you’ll work a smaller piece in red. The two pieces are joined to the front, slightly overlapping, to form an envelope cushion cover – just slot the cushion inner in!
