Joy’s Cushion – Continuous Crochet Square video tutorial

I would love to show you a neat way to use variegated yarn to make a quick gift or decorate you house with a lovely continuous crochet square cushion. After all, you can never have too many cushions. My cushion is based on the pattern Joy’s Journey by Dedri Uys and uses Scheepjes Noorse Sokkenwol Color.

Joy's Cushion - Free Crochet Pattern

Materials

You will need 2 balls of Scheepjes Noorse Sokkenwol Color. I used two colors, one for each side of the cushion, giving a fun two-sided look. I used colors 951 and 967 plus a 4.5mm hook. In addition to the yarn, you will also need a 45cm x 45cm cushion inner.

Scheepjes Noorse Sokkenwol Color

Scheepjes Noorse Sokkenwol Color is available from Wool Warehouse, Deramores or your Scheepjes stockist. Thank you for using the links on my blog, supporting my work and helping me to keep my work available for free.

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

© Esther Dijkstra 2017. All rights reserved.

To make a cushion do the following:

  1. Make 2 identical continuous squares using the pattern Joy’s Journey till each square is approximately 45cm x 45cm.
  2. Work away the yarn tails of both squares.
  3. 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.
  4. Put the cushion inner inside the joined squares.
  5. Join the final edges of the squares with single crochet stitches.
  6. Work away your last yarn tail.

Yarn packs for Joy’s Journey

If you enjoyed making this pattern you could consider doing a full size blanket with it. It is fabulously relaxing and a wonderful destresser. There are yarn packs available for Joy’s Journey to make a Baby Blanket or a Large Blanket. The yarn packs include yarn, a printed pattern and a pom-pom ribbon to make the border.

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. Gotta love that yarn!

  1. I do love your cushion! Thank you for the pattern, when I finish my WIP’s (too much to make, not enough time!), I want to make this cushion. I love the idea of the two different coloursways. Clever.

  2. Esther, a huge thank you for all the time, effort, and detail you put into each and every video. I have watched many, and always feel confident starting a project if I know you have made videos for it. I am reasonably new to crochet (3 years or so) and was unsure of patterns and techniques. But with the aid of your wonderful videos, I have developed a much wider knowledge of the art, and a tremendous passion for crochet. So, I thank you and your wonderful voice and hands. They calm this flustered anxious soul, and enable me to breathe 🙂
