Hi Lucy. You make such lovely things and the colours look amazing. Could you please let me know the type of yarn you used for the cushion. Thanks so much for the pattern.

Adele

Hi Lucy
Want to make this so much! What yarn, colours and hook size did you use?

Doris Sparks

What size hook and how much yarn do you need? I love this!

Yvonne Davidson

Hi Lucy, I have just completed the Woodland blanket. It was a great experience, my first Attic 24 project, thank you so much. I have the hydrangea pack ready to go but I fancied completing something smaller first. I love the flower cushion and wondered if you could please give me some information on the yarn you used? It looks like cotton?

Maggie

Hi Lucy! I just wanted to thank you for sharing your gift of color & creation so freely. I am preparing for an inevitable hospital stay & while that's had me in tears, stumbling onto this, and deciding that it's going to be the project I do between tests & doctor's visits, has given me a little cheer. Thank you so much. Your gift & happy words, the "peek" you give into such a cheerful life; it reaches far & helps some more than you realize.
Happy Hooking!

That flower is absolutely perfect. I don't suppose you have a list of yarns and colors you used?

I worked this pattern dozens of times and the numbers done add up starting with row 4 it has caused great stress, if you work 2dc(us terms) then work 1dc then 2 in the next all the way around, it's more than 45 stitches which throws the whole count off.

Janet

HI What size of cushion did you use? I love your work and your blog. Thank you so much!!!

Ginny

Thank you for sharing such a great pattern. I made the cushion & entered it into our village's Summer Show. I won the Crochet section! I love your use of colour - the combinations you use are fantastic - I've learned loads. Thank you again.

Hi Lucy,
Found your blog this morning while looking for instructions for the flower cushion. I have been crocheting on and off for over 50 years and as looking for ideas to share with the Art Hive in our area. The cushion stood out for me because it is so bright and cheerful plus possibly some of the donated yarn the Art Hive has been given may be a way to make something useful. I'll be back to enjoy your blog as you have a very colourful interesting site

Yvonne Davidson

Hi, your blooming flower cushion looks amazing and I can picture this on my garden chair on a sunny day. I notice you often have yarn packs for particular projects (making it easy for a beginner like me). Could you please post some information on the wool and hook size. Thank you !

Sarah Williams

Hi Lucy, I can't see a mention of the yarn you used for this lovely cushion. The colours are so bright and pretty, I want to have a go making one for my new house! :)

Jane Clayton

Hi, I love this cushion, is there a kit for it please? If not, how much wool/ yarn is needed to do it?
Many thanks, Jane

Lorraine

Just a quick comment/question as I refer people to your site (we have over 5000 members now in just a few months) I feel terribly guilty that you aren't getting paid. Is there a way of contributing monthly so that it helps you? We are not for profit but I would happily subscribe a monthly amount. Also would you mind if I published your blog in its entirety for our members to read/subscribe to? Thank you and thank you for the colour and joy you bring. Lo xx

Lorraine

Thank you, I find you so inspirational and I refer to your page at least once a week for our crochet crowd in Australia. Kindest regards Lorraine

Mandy

Hi Lucy i am confused about the back. The front looks great but i made the back incorrectly.Is it 2 rounds of treble in the same colour and increasing on the alternate rounds?

Janet

Hi Mam, making this cushion. I love the pattern. Is there anyway if we can just use it as it is,without making it as a cushion. How do I make it sit like that then.

Danielle

Hello, I've just finish it, not exactly the same colors but in acrylic. Need to put a cushion inside. Your pictures and data very well explained and it was very easy to follow. I found a website were your pictures are used but don't see your reference http://make-handmade.com/2013/10/14/crochet-colorful-flower-accessories/
Thanks very much for your work on the net !

Marilyn Hunter

Please can you tell me which wool you used for the blooming flower cushion
Many thanks
Marilyn

Sharon

I may be reading it wrong and I haven't started this yet but at the beginning you say about leaving the ends to weave in later but a bit later you say to leave it to weave or work it in. does it make a difference if you work over it to secure it or is it neater to weave them all in later. Thanks Also I notice that you appear to be using cotton, is it better in cotton than acrylic, does it make a significant difference to the appearance?

Barbara

I really love the blooming flower cushion you've provided detailed photo's and instructions and I plan on working this up today in my own color palette. I also love the hexagon throw/afghan pictured below the patchwork elephant! Really lovely! I haven't found the pattern for this hexagon afghan/throw, but I' still looking! and I may have to devise my own!
