It is time again for a new pattern. And it is the second edition in a collection of three patterns about the Indian Flower. I present to you…the Indian Flower Cushion. A lovely square pattern that holds the iconic flower center that all these three patterns will have. Inspired by the sacred Lotus flower images, you will find all across India in holy places. For that reason, I also added a lot of colors. Gold and bright, sparkling colors are typical for the Indian culture and output, and all of these elements can be found in this square. The square can be used to crochet individually – and maybe turn them into a lovely blanket. Or you can follow the directions out of the pattern to create this beautiful cushion.
First things first. The Indian Flower collection will hold three patterns that have one similarity. The center of these patterns is all the same. And the first one was the Indian Flower Rug which you can see above. This one is already released. You can find all the information needed right here. Secondly, we have the cushion, and the third one is still a secret.
Some general information about the pattern:
- The pattern is made with a combination of Scheepjes Stonewashed and Riverwashed. The pattern holds instructions on the amounts needed for one square – or a cushion cover. For a cushion cover, you need:
- 2 balls of Scheepjes Stonewashed 801 Moonstone
- 1 ball of Scheepjes Riverwashed 955 Po
- 1 ball of Scheepjes Riverwashed 942 Steenbras
- 1 ball of Scheepjes Riverwashed 956 Avon
- 1 ball of Scheepjes Riverwashed 954 Congo
- 1 ball of Scheepjes Riverwashed 949 Yarra
- 3 balls of Scheepjes Stonewashed 832 Enstatite
In total, you might need 1000-1500 meters of yarn depending if you would make a single square or the entire cushion cover.
- the pattern is crocheted with a 4.0mm hook size.
- to make a cushion cover, a cushion of 45 x 45 cm is required.
- the pattern holds clear instructions on how to work the pattern. There are written instructions, guided by many photos as you need them while crocheting. As you work a lot in the overlay technique, I have no charts or videos available.
- The pattern is available in English and Dutch. Tineke Tap translates the Dutch version – she also tested the pattern, and her result is shown above.
And now the most important thing, where to get this pattern ? Well as always you can get my patterns in my Ravelry store which you can find here. And for those who like Etsy, there is always my Etsy shop to go to. You can find it here.
And for our Dutch crochet community I have another suggestion. Although, everyone overseas can also use this option but the shipping costs might be a little higher depending on where you live. If you like to buy the required yarn for this pattern as you find the amounts above in the general information, you can buy these yarns at two lovely Dutch yarn shops. Caro’s Atelier and Marlaine. You can find the links here.
If you decide to buy some yarns through these shops above, and enter them on the links given above – you will support me as well as I receive a minimal percentage of any transaction done through these links.
