Something yellow

This pattern is one among my favourite. I started many a projects in this pattern and never able to finish a single one. This year , I have decided to use up all/half of yarn I have collected before buying anything new. Its going to be two months and I still stick to what I decided though tempted to buy many a times. This project I started as a stash buster.

One fine day I just started making yellow flowers , I was not sure if I could complete this cushion , but then that evening I completed all squares. Then I ran out of yellow(mission accomplished evil grin) and took  green just like that to join the squares. And I believe it worked beautifully!

Third day I started with the back side of pillow which is good ol' granny square. And then I had to wait for right buttons which I bought last week. I really feel the different patterned buttons give a rustic look to the whole thing.

I usually work with cotton yarn for my pillows, but this yarn though its acrylic, gives a really good finish. I was not sure if this colours would work, sometimes things work beautifully than we ever imagine , you just have to give it a go!

  1. Beautiful cushion. Me too have the same color combo yarn in my stash. Though having so much yarns and threads in my stash I still ponder over the online stores. I don't know why I am doing that. Inspired to do a cushion with this combo. Thanks.

  2. It is one of my fav pattern too. I am inspired to make cushions seeing yours now. So bright and cheery

  3. It's looking pretty !!:) I usually don't make crocheted backs, just lazy for double work.

  4. Lovely...those yellow flowers look so prominent and beautiful !
