Oh! How I love this pattern Lucy !
Ive started my own and plans are afoot for blooming flowers on every chair in the house !


This cushion looks ever so fantastic, but so do you on the picture by the way. I´m looking forward to starting this project with all my odd cotton left over yarns. Thank you very much for the tutorial and best wishes!


Hi from the US! I've just made a flower pillow and the vintage potholder :). The pillow isn't assembled yet, so I made the potholder for instant gratification, hee hee. And I adore it and with a crocheted round in the middle, it holds very hot things easily. Thanks so much for all the inspiration, so excited to get my pillow finally finished soon!


Amazing....can I use chunky yarn for this and wat hook size would u recommend... Thanku x

Lucy, I love your blooming flower cushion. I was prompted to re-visit your blog entry, after seeing a similar cushion in a local shop. When I first saw your pattern a couple of years ago, it was way beyond my ability. I feel that I've made enough progress to attempt the cushion. I am using a DK cotton mix and I wonder what size hook you would recommend. I've started with a 4 mm, but it seems a bit too tight/firm. Hope you can help. Thanks! Carol x


I just finished making one of these following your tutorial and I absolutely love it! Thank you so much for sharing the pattern :)

Thank you so much for this! It was so fun to do and I love the results...I have shared a link back to you from my post at http://fromgrammysheart.com/?p=347. Thanks again!


I love your conversational way of blogging and it makes me feel I can really do this although I am not an experienced crocheter. I am a novice. I love the bright colours and the beautiful tactile look of this . IF i master this I am going to make many more but not using them for cushions but on a white bought duvet cover. I will simply sew them on and use it in winter time. Blanket and duvet combinded. Ta- dah! LOL


Thank you soooo much my version is here http://craftycrochet2014.blogspot.co.uk/ hope you like it xxx


Hello. Must say that I am total croshe begginer and with your instructions I made my own blooming flower and this is my first croshe project. Thank you for wonderful tutorial! Best regards

It looks marvellous and so do you. You have dragged me away from my usual colours, coffee, oyster, eau de nil, olive and cream. I am contemplating a ripple blankie, quite an undertaking for a three month hooker, but your pattern is so easy...just as soon as I've been to the yarn shop I've seen online, somewhere I can hold actual balls together :)

Just finished this cushion, Lucy, it's absolutely beautiful, so touchy feely and I can't thank you enough for giving us the pattern. Your tutorials are fantastic as is your new column in Simply Crochet. Keep up the good work. xx


Beautiful ! I'm new here...I just felt in love with your site, your colors, your vibe and what you see and enjoy from life. Thank you, for sharing...I know that it's your way to make from this one, a better world.

Thanks Lucy we all benefit from your research and easy to understand instructions. I have been having a go this afternoon at making the blooming flower cushion and very pleased with the progress. Makes it extra special that it originates from a vintage pattern.


What hook size did u use?


Been planning it for some time. Started today. Have two rows of petals done. Just in time too. Someone wanted the seat on the train next to me where my bags were sitting while I concentrated on keeping the count correct.
Bought some more wool after receiving ten huge 200gm balls for my birthday. Hubby said I had to make something for the gift-giver. Decided on a Blooming Cushion for her using the 18 balls of wool bought for my Patchwork Rug (Lucy's rug design of course).
Thought I had better start before summer hits here in the southern hemisphere. :-)
Thank you Lucy for sharing your crochet adventures.

My version - comments in Danish, sorry, but a link to your tutorial.



Perhaps this has already been answered, but what brand/name yarn did you use? The pillow is spectacular and the yarn looks delicious! Thanks for sharing.

Have read and re-read the tutorial. I am anxious to start this wonderful project! I must be missing something, as I can't find anywhere in the directions what size crochet hook or weight of yarn you used. What is the finished diameter of the cushion what is the gauge of your stitches?


Lucy! You can't do it to me. You gave us your pattern and lovely photos and now I can't make it as I do not know what yarn you used. It's so painful!!! I used some of my simple acrylic yarn but it's terrible and my knowledge about it is very little. I have enven read all the comments hopping somebody asked the same question and you answered. Gosh, please reveal the secret.


Hi there. Your pillow is fantastic!!!!! I need to do one for myself as I love the colours. Could you please tell what yarn and hook size did you use? Thank you

Neeta Sawant

U r tutorials are superb just like u. Wish I could send u the photo of the cushion I made. I am making another one for my sis. Thanks for the lovely pattern. Do come up with pattern for babies.
