This pink is so pretty, isn’t it? Maria is crocheting a cushion and had just started it and already it looks so lovely. She is using acrylic. You want to be able to wash cushion covers quickly and easily. The pattern is trebles and then side puff stitch which gives it some good texture.
Instructions for side puff stitch are on new stitch a day. There’s a video to help you learn.
Regular, vertical puff stitch is a handy stitch to know as well. It makes for good texture in anything you are making but it also makes good blankets. If you watch the video below by Rich Textures Crochet you will see the stitch comes into its own if you make a blanket which changes colour.
