Blooming Flower Cushion

Blooming Flower Cushion
Here is my tutorial showing how to construct this wonderful layered flower and then make it into a Blooming Flower cushion/pillow. First of all I would like to say that this pattern is not my own. I found it via Two Butterflies blog. In this blog post, Jennifer shows her own creation and gives a link to the original pattern which is actually a vintage potholder design from the 1940's. The original pattern is short and sweet and written in US terms. The directions re how to increase in each round are vague and took me a fair amount of trial and error before I got it sussed. Before we begin, a little summary of the basic stitches. sl st [slip stitch] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. dc [double crochet] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US sc stitch) To begin :: ch 6 and join to form a ring.

Joining Granny Squares When I join my Granny Squares together I always choose to crochet them rather than stitch them. Its just the way that appeals to me, although many of my hooking buddies prefer the stitching method. I guess it's a personal preference. And as many of you have asked me to supply this information, here you have it :: my take on joining the Grannies, in usual Attic24 style with waaaaay too many pictures I suspect. Two-Color Cowl We have a long history of knitted cowls here at the Purl Bee, but this is actually our very first crocheted cowl! It's an omission we are happy to finally correct because crochet lends itself so beautifully to pretty stitch patterns and easy tube shapes.
