Bushel Cushion – by Fay Dashper-Hughes


Bushel Cushion makes use of just three of the twenty colours of Appledore by John Arbon Textiles. The Bushel Blanket uses all twenty, but the cushion is designed as a more subtle option that also offers a smaller project. The cushion uses a two-row repeat through the three-colour sequence. The length of fabric is then folded to create an envelope. Finally, a simple double crochet border is added which joins the enveloped fabric to make the cushion cover. The Appledore wool blend is soft yet crisp. Combined with the stitches, it offers a durable fabric and great stitch definition.
