Two seat cushions crocheted, felted, and done!
Great for throwing on the benches outside, or inside:
Seamed together and with a non-stick pad underneath, they’d make a cute rug, too.
Here are photos before and after felting:
I ran them through a full wash cycle using warm water, then washed them again in hot water in 2 minute increments until they were fulled to the desired size (about 33cm/13″). Probably two full wash cycles would have done the trick.
Pattern: 0-840 Seating Pad for Easter
Yarn: DROPS Eskimo
Crochet Hook: N/9mm
Details of yarn colors and usage on my Ravelry project.
The pattern called for 2 skeins of white and 1 skein each of the 5 colors, but I only needed 1 skein of white per pad. Since you don’t use all that much of the other colors, I was able to make 2 pads using 1 skein of each of the other colors except the pink, which needed more than half a skein per pad. But even after making 2 pads, there’s still quite a bit of blue and green left over.
Since I bought 4 skeins of white and 2 skeins of each color, I think I have enough to make two more pads if I switch up the position of the colors, and swap the green/pink and blue/red.
