Popcorn Cushion Pattern

Hi everyone. In my previous post I already revealed this very squishy popcorn cushion cover and today it's time to share the pattern with you. It's a very beginners-friendly design with a striking result. It's so tactile! I'm going to use it as a yoga cushion; very soft on the you know what ;-)

Below you'll find the instructions in US/UK crochet terms and if you click the flags, you'll also find the instructions in Dutch and Spanish.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In my Ravelry and Etsy shops you can purchase a premium PDF version of this pattern for just €2.75 excl. VAT (US/UK and DUTCH).
The advantages of the premium PDF are:
  • Close-up photos
  • Clear layout with instructions in bullet-point format
  • Same graphic design as all of my other PDF patterns
  • You support my work so that I can continue to publish free patterns and offer discount codes
Thank you!

Pattern Notes
  • Each popcorn consists of 5 trc.
  • Each square consists of 8 rounds but you can of course make the square as large or as small as you'd like.
  • Colour scheme: I always like the front and back of a cushion cover to be different so I changed the order of the colours around to create two different colour schemes. Please note that if you want the sides to be exactly the same, you'll need more than 3 balls of the colour you use for Rounds 4 and 8.
