Daisy & Sweetheart Couch Potatoes

Daisy and Sweetheart Couch Potatoes

These Cushion covers are designed to be fun items for your home.  They use a standard 16inch cushion insert.
Materials:  Cygnet Aran: 4 x Harvest (A), 1 x Coffee (B), 1 x Red (C), and White (D), small amounts of Green and colour of choice for flower, 4 buttons.
Flower Power uses just over 2 balls of Harvest and Sweetheart uses just under 2 balls. 4 balls should be enough to complete both cushions.
As the flower and leaves are made and stitched on separately, you can use any yarn you would like to because size and tension is not important.
Equipment:  4.00mm hook and a needle for sewing in ends.
Tension:  15 dc and 20 rows to 10 cm
Graphs:  Written instructions and graphs are given for each cushion. You can follow which ever you find easiest.
Finished Size:  42cm (16 in) wide x 42cm (16in) tall.

Just click on any of the pictures to go to the site to buy the pattern.

I have been really naughty!

I haven't blogged in what seems like forever!

So, I am going to try to be good, and blog a bit more.

For those of you who don't know, I went to Ally Pally in London to demonstrate those gorgeous Tulip Etimo hooks. I hade a wonderful time. Four whole days at the Knit & Stitch show. Four whole days without cooking, cleaning and washing the dishes.

And I got paid for it!

And, as you can see, it wasn't only me who had a good time.

Thank you to everybody who came and made weekend very enjoyable!
