Hooray it’s new pattern day! I’m excited to introduce my Vivo bolster cushion pattern to you today. She’s bold, she’s colourful and so much fun to have in your home.
I’m so happy with how this pattern has turned out and hope you will love her as much as I do.
Getting Vivo ready for the world has been a slow process though. I actually finished making the cushion several months ago but I must admit to a tiny bit of procrastination when it came to writing up the actual pattern. But it’s all done now and back from the testers ready to go.
Inspired by the colourful ethnic textiles from around the world, this stunning cushion is created using tapestry crochet and textured stitches to create the designs.
The pattern is rated as intermediate, mainly for all the colour changes but it is not as complicated as it looks using only basic stitches and each design element is set out in strips with easy to follow short pattern repeats for each section.
The pattern also includes a quick guide to tapestry crochet, photo tutorials for the special stitches used and full colour charts for all the different design strips as well as smaller charts for just the pattern repeats to save you going cross-eyed working from the whole chart.
There are two versions of the pattern available. One written in US terms and one using UK/Aus terms and can be found in all the usual places :
Ravelry: Here (Ravelry will only allow one listing per design so your download will include both versions of the pattern as 2 separate files. You will only need to print the one you need)
I hope you enjoy.
Until next time
