Hello my dear crochet fiends, oops I mean friends. I'm back to share with you a project that I finished up just yesterday. It's another reversible cushion cover using an adaptation of both the Sunburst Pattern by Priscilla Hewitt and Jan Eaton's Square Target.
On my last post I showed you the pile of little target squares I'd crocheted up. I decided to frame each 3 round motif in white dc's (UK double crochet stitches), just to give them a nice neat finish, and to help those colours pop a bit more.
I then used a htr (UK Half Treble Stitch) seam to join each square together. When using this method I tend to connect single blocks into rows first, then once I have the right configuration seam each row together (if that makes sense?)
The Half Treble seam gives a nice raised join, which adds dimension. I then moved on to prepping the other side to match for size. I had to add a couple of rows of htr's around my Sunburst Squares to make everything even. Both sides ending up 18" x 12".
I was now firmly onto the home straight and loving every minute of assembling this colourful hooky creation. Putting wrong sides together I crocheted the 2 panels using a htr seam once again. Happily it gave me a lovely piped look to the edge.
