I am busy putting all my crochet designs onto Etsy its quite a tedious job, but I will get them all added soon, I do have to remember that there is a pile of ironing to do as well as a class to teach tonight.

Caledonia Textured Cushion

This is a pattern I designed to give my students the chance to practice different crochet textures.  Made up of four different squares this is a simple cushion to crochet.

The pattern is available in my Etsy shop.

I am now working on a different colour and using cotton double knitting. 

Happy crocheting,
