This is such a beautiful design and I can't wait to start it! I don't have a 6mm hook my biggest is a 5mm hook, will that be alright to use with chunky yarn? Thanks for all your lovely patterns and advice :)

Hi Lucy
I have hopefully got the correct link to make contact and comment. I met you in Skipton in July.We had a coffee together, I live in Cornwall. You may remember me. I love the vivid colours in your cushion. I am going to have a go, but before I do, I want to try a ripple cushion. You were busy crocheting the coast ripple blanket. I love the colours in the blanket. Is it poss to make a cushion in the ripple pattern? I have never been successful trying to do a ripple pattern in the past. However, you have explained how tos go about it in your excellent way, so I am going to take the plunge and get the colours from Style Craft so that I can replicate the effect you created in your blanket. If successful, I will have a go at making the blanket in the same colours. Thank you Lucy for all your inspiration that you share with us. Linda

This is absolutely gorgeous! Every time I follow a link to your blog I am delighted. You do such beautiful work. Bravo and thank you for all of the inspiration.

bsolutely gorgeous! Love your 'raimbow corner'... Perhaps I'll be able to have one like yours some day! The case is that I'm afraid I'won't have enough time in the rest of my life, which I hope will be very long, the thing is that the cue of my next projects is becoming too long for a lifetime ;) Does that happen to you as well?
Thanks a lot for sharing your beutiful ideas!
A hug with two kisses, the Spanish way!!!

Eva

Love the stitch, but don't know how to make it with straight sides. Help!

Maire

What a fab idea, i'm all about cushions and throws at the moment. I'm half afraid though of how challenging it would be for me to create something similar as it looks so detailed!

Jules

Just finished mine but in a slightly bigger size and I'm a tiny bit in love!

Lorna

just started making this and it is really easy to do. And the side edges are lovely and straight! Thanks so much Lucy :-)

Paula

I absolutely LOVE this and I'm definitely going to give it a go.

Can I ask though how do you start it off, for your size cushion, how many chains?? Thank you xxx

Gemma Payne

I'm having a lot of trouble with this pattern, I consider myself to be an intermediate crocheter but this has me stumped. I've just posted a picture to your facebook page to show the problem. I've started the cushion twice now but it keeps going wonky. I've done a sample/tester square and it's done the same. I swear I'm following the pattern exactly. It keeps skewing to the right. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. Can you help? Thanks in advance

Just finished making the cushion. It was a lot quicker than I had expected so am going to give it to my sister for her birthday (hadn't thought I would finish it in time). I enjoyed making it and it was a real "people magnet" - I often crochet on the 'bus or in public and I've never had so many people ask me about what I'm crocheting. It also attracted another Attic 24 fan who recognised the design!

Just one thing - I found the technique you suggest about the ends distorted the side with the ends a bit. It doesn't show too much now the cushion's sewn up, but I don't think I'd use that method again.

Thanks again for the lovely pattern and your clear way of describing it.

Vikki Shelton

Hi Lucy - I love this cushion and already have some lovely colours of yarn that I could use but it is DK not chunky squidgy!

Do you think it would work if I used DK instead of chunky yarn? I can obviously just work the number of stitches and rows required to fit the measurements you have provided, but what hook size would you recommend I use?

Thanks for your help!

Roslyn

Hi Lucy,
I am trying this pattern using shades of yellow and orange in a DK weight to make a blanket. It looks lovely...but I'm getting those wonky edges that I see at the start of your pillow, even though I *think* I'm following the directions correctly. I can usually figure such things out on my own, but wondered if you had suggestions?

GC

Many thanks for posting the raindrops pattern and details of the cushion. I needed a new and colourful project so have bought the wool and am going for it. Just one thing - I couldn't see the number of stitches for the cushion anywhere, am I missing it? You mention 50 stitches when you're describing the button holes, but that doesn't work out as a multiple of 4, or a multiple of 4 plus 3, as you say in the raindrops pattern.

Silly Little Sheep

It is beautiful! I didnt read the whole post, but I love the pictures and the buttons that you chose are just perfect!

Fantastical, lubberly Cush! Can't wait to have a go at your version...started one similar a few weeks ago in lemon, pale green and white as a baby blankie, but ran out of wool for the lemon, so having to start again with new lemon! Couldnt find the rest if the lemony wool...Lol!
Lurve the buttony goodness! So cheerful.
Ve ve pleased you are much betterer, having had the same thing I really know how you felt and you had my sympathies!

Thank you so much Lucy for sharing this wonderful, colourful pattern and tutorial! I've been looking for a way to make bread without kneading, to make good coffee, muffins, frothy milk and the perfect chunky yarn. Here it all is shared by you along with the way to finish ends neatly! Thank you, thank you! I'd be v interested to hear your thoughts on the three different chunky yarns that you tried if you have the time? I hope you don't mind me asking, I know you're v v busy! Also, thinking of raindrops, my friend Victoria has posted pictures of the embroidered cloud and raindrops that she made on her lovely new blog picklesandsmith@wordpress.com Jo xx

Ashlie

Absolutely gorgeous! This is definitely my next project! Looking forward to brightening up my living room :)

Pat
