PART 1 CUSHION CAL: PICTURE TUTORIAL

CUSHION CAL to start 17th January
18"  Square Cushion and the No.10 Circular Cushion

Using these colours in Aran
Special Aran with Duck Egg and Sea Breeze being Alpaca Aran

Thanks for the speedy reply to the 'QUICK PATTERN' question, it seems if you don't know your stitches then you are a little stumped with a quick pattern.
Thanks for the feed back, it was all very helpful



MY THINKING NOW: A set of pictures or maybe another MinI video of Bobble stitch would sort out the problem i think?

While you wait for me to do the MINI VIDEO here are a few past patterns of  one using Bobble stitch



QUICK PATTERN: US Terms, UK Terms in brackets



finger wrap of 5 wraps





Round 1: 12 sc [12dc] into circle (12sts)






Round 2: cluster of 2dc [2tr], into each st with ch1 between (12 clusters)





Round 3: 3tr [3dtr], into each ch1 sp, (36sts)



Round 4: sc [dc], in 2nd and 3rd sts, of group of 3sts, sc [dc] spike st into clusters of 
round 2. (36sts)




Round 5: sc in first st, in any st, bobble st of 3tr [3dtr], in ext st, ch1, sc [dc], in next st repeat to end. (18bobbles, 18sc [dc])

  10. Just discovered your wonderful blog. Have just ordered a stack of wool to start spinning top blanket. Love the look of the border in picture at beginning of this blog and wondered if there is a pattern for this. Also not having crocheted for a long time, do you have an explanation for 'join as you go' technique when joining the little shells around each motif? thank you Caitlin
