How do you like your Popcorns? Squishy for me please

Here it is, the squishy result of the heap of popcorns I showed you in the previous post. I made a super soft cushion cover with 4 large squares on each side. It's so soft because I used Merino Soft Brush, a new yarn in Scheepjes' Merino Soft line*, a yarn you may already be familiar with because it was used in The Last Dance on the Beach CAL. But now there is a lovely new addition with little flecks both dark and light brushed through the main colour. It's 50% merino wool, 25% microfibre and 25% acrylic and comes in 50gr/105m balls and it's suitable for 4 to 5mm hooks.

The cushion measures 45 x 45cm / 18 x 18inch and as you can see in the pic below, I alternated the colours. I think I like the colour order in the pic on the right best but I always like to make two different sides when making a cushion cover.

I'm going to use it as a meditation cushion because I can't get used to the hard round ones that seem to be standard yoga and meditation equipment. It's nice and soft (did I mention that already?) and firm enough to sit on. Next week I'll share the pattern with you. Hope you're in the mood for popcorns and Merino Soft Brush. It's available at WoolWarehouse and Deramores (international shipping).*
