Let me show you a neat way to use variegated yarn to make a quick gift or decorate your house with a lovely continuous crochet square cushion. The cushion is based on the pattern Joy’s Journey by Dedri Uys. The original yarn for this cushion is Scheepjes Noorse Sokkenwol Color which is no longer available, but a great replacement yarn is Scheepjes Our Tribe.

You will need 2 balls of Scheepjes Our Tribe. I used two colors, one for each side of the cushion, giving a fun two-sided look. You will also need a 45cm x 45cm cushion inner.
Gauge and size
Gauge is not essential for this project and it’s not needed to make a gauge swatch. If your gauge is similar to mine you will be able to make a 45cm x 45cm cushion.
If you would like to make a cushion or blanket of your own using Dedri’s pattern, I have a short video tutorial to show you how to make Joy’s Journey.
Joy’s Cushion – Free Crochet Work Description
To make a cushion do the following:
- Make 2 identical continuous squares using the pattern Joy’s Journey till each square is approximately 45cm x 45cm.
- Work away the yarn tails of both squares.
- Place the two squares with their backs to each-other. Using one of the yarn colors used to make the squares, join 3 edges with single crochet stitches. In the corners work 3 single crochet stitches.
- Put the cushion inner inside the joined squares.
- Join the final edges of the squares with single crochet stitches.
- Work away your last yarn tail.
I am really happy with my cushion and my boys love it too. My eldest said it was the softest cushion he has ever laid his head on.
The two colors I chose are completely different, so my cushion has a metamorphoses every time I turn it around.
