I bought some cushion pads quite some time ago 30 x 50cm (12 x 20 inches) and had been dithering for ages in deciding what to do with them. I finally go round to making some covers to go over them with King Cole Cottonsoft DK. Find pattern/ details of this project here.

I love these Stylecraft Chunky yarn colours together and they work up well in cushion cover. The chunky yarn seems to give a beautiful stitch definition and seems to work perfectly with the herringbone half treble stitch.

This pattern is for a 50cm x 50cm cushion but can easily be adapted to whatever size cushion you desire. It is super simple to make. Suitable for a beginner.
I used a 6mm hook.
