Shades of yellow - Home accessories - part 1 - Rosy cushion cover

Rosy Cushion Cover, size 50 x 50 cm (19 1/2" x 19 1/2")
Wool or cotton yarn for the flowers (shades of yellow or other colours)
Crochet hook size 3

About 350 gr of wool yarn, 70 m/ 50 g (77 yds/50 g) for the cushion (grey) Knitting needles size 6  

1 Zipper 40 cm (15 3/4")
Tapestry needle

 A down cushion 50 x 50 cm

(I used leftovers from tapestry wool for the flowers and unravelled wool for the cushion cover)

Abbreviations: ch = chain

                    sc = single crochet

                    dc = double crochet


Large flower: start with 50 ch, use crochet hook size 3.

1st row:  1 dc into each ch

2nd row:  start with 3 ch. and 3 dc into the 1st dc from the row before. 

Into the next dc work *1 sc, in every 2nd dc from the 1st row work 6 dc*, repeat* end with 4 dc into the last dc.

After having crochet the second row --> it will curl by itself.

Wind it to a flower and

hold it carefully

Sew it together on the back side with the tapestry needle.

The finished flower is looking like this:

On the left side of the Foto you can see the large flower, on the right side the smaller one (work it with 30 ch only, the same way as the large one). 

Make about 12 or 13 larger rosies and 10 or 11 smaller ones.

For the cushion cover cast on app. 62 sts (depends on the quality of your wool yarn), use knitting needles size 6 and work in stockinette st.

Finish after 100 cm (39 1/2") length. Steam it slightely on wrong side.
Mark a 7 cm (2 3/4") line from one end of the cushion with larger stiches and another one in 57 cm (22 1/2").

(The zipper will be 7 cm (2 3/4") away from the lower edge on the back side of the cushion cover).

In between of the two lines arrange all the flowers, pin them and sew them on.

Then pin the zipper, sew it by hand with small stitches (because it slips away) and then by sewing machine.

Close the right and left open end with the tapestry needle, use a wool thread in the colour of the cushion.

Turn the cushion to the left fold it by the markings of the large stitching line what you did at the beginning (you can see it on the 1st Foto -  after the flower Fotos), pin it and sew it together with wool, use the tapestry needle.

Put a down cushion into finished cushon cover and enjoy the cushion.
